I posed a similar question. I gave my photog a must have list of people to include, to get my DIY details, etc, but didn’t bother to think that I’d want to come up with some poses for myself. All my portraits are me just standing there. I really wish he’d helped me come up with some fun shots, or at least ask me to think about this ahead of time.
