I would say you can practice how you look beforehand in a mirror. I wanted a photographer who would really direct us on how to look and he did. He would say “tilt your chin down a bit” or “drop your shoulders” or even just “relax” and that was really important to me

If I am standing to the side, I ALWAYS make sure I throw my shoulder and arm to the back.  A big arm taking up most of the picture is SO not cute!

This site has some good basics.

Mrs Sewing also did a mini series on how to pose, but a lot of it was using the camera angles to your advantage. Still it gives good tips.

The things I’ve read most are keep your arms slightly away from your body so they don’t smoosh out (keep this in mind when youre holding your flowers), keep your posture in mind (chin up/level, neck straight, shoulders back and down)

Also if you’re posing side by side with people, don’t just lean in with your top half, move your feet closer too.

I agree with PitBullLover though- my best tips came from my photographer while she was taking pictures. Ask to see some shots as they are taken and you’ll be able to see whats working and whats not.
