Fun Photoshoot Ideas Based on Your Star Sign

Even if you aren’t someone who knows their sun, star, and moon sign by heart, it’s fun to check your horoscope every once in a while. Who among us hasn’t done a Buzzfeed quiz to find out what vegetable we are based on our star sign?

Well this Delaware photographer wants to see if she can guess what photoshoot you should do based on your Zodiac sign. Who knows? Maybe you’ll feel inspired to try a photoshoot genre outside of your comfort zone.

Once you look at your sign, make sure you share the article with your friends so they can check their sign, too!

Figuring Your Your Sun Sign

If you’re only casually interested in zodiac signs, you still likely know your star sign. It’s the easiest to figure out of the sun, moon, and star signs. While you need the time and location of your birth to figure out the sun and moon sign, you only need your birth day to know your star sign.

If you’re on the beginning or end date of a sign, you’ll have to check the specific cut-off date on the year you were born. The dates might shift a little year to year, but here are the general dates for each of the star signs:

  • Aries: March 23 - April 19

  • Taurus: April 20 - May 20

  • Gemini: May 21 - June 20

  • Cancer: June 21 - July 22

  • Leo: July 23 - August 22

  • Virgo: August 23 - September 22

  • Libra: September 23 - October 22

  • Scorpio: October 23 - November 21

  • Sagittarius: November 22 - December 21

  • Capricorn: December 22 - January 19

  • Aquarius: January 20 - February 18

  • Pisces: February 19 - March 20

And that’s all you need to know to figure out your star sign! Now let’s see if you think you match with your sign’s photoshoot.


Stranger Session

An Aries is as bold as they come. They jump into things impulsively, but they’ve got the talent to land on their feet. They’re creative but ambitious. This creativity could manifest itself as painting skills or coming up with unique solutions in the boardroom. They are bold and always want to be #1.

An Aries would shine with a stranger session. Stranger sessions are unique session types where you meet someone for the very first time and do a couples shoot with them. You can make the session as sweet or as steamy as you’d like. It’s like a blind date but a photographer is there to capture the magic. Generally, the new couple will go on a first date after the session.

It’s an interesting way to push yourself to try something entirely new. Being a bold Aries makes this the perfect creative challenge to navigate.


Glamour Friend Session

A Taurus looks at the world through rose colored glasses. Not because they’re naïve, but because they choose to see the beauty in everything. They’re devoted to the aesthetic arts and appreciate the beauty and romance in life. They are fiercely loyal and want to maintain harmony in their relationships.

A Taurus (like myself) would appreciate a glamour session with their closest friends. A high fashion, editorial shoot would make them feel fabulous. They’d want to share this session with a friend so they can bond and both look incredible. A Taurus will want to choose a photographer with a client closet so they can get access to luxury pieces without paying for a dress they’ll never wear again.

Still Poetry Photography offers a size-adjustable client closet with some beautiful couture pieces, mostly from Ashes & Embers. Access to the closet comes complimentary with glamour sessions.


Modeling Course

A Gemini leans into their spontaneous side, choosing new adventures to keep them entertained. Geminis pick up new skills almost instantly. Their knack for quick learning makes them interesting and exciting. They need to constantly feel intrigued, otherwise they get bored quickly.

Since Geminis want to be the best at everything new they try, they won’t be satisfied with a simple portrait shoot. They want to take their skills to the next level. A Gemini will take a course or participate in mentoring to learn how to model. They don’t necessarily need to become professionals, but they want to have a deeper understanding of the art. Even if they don’t become the next Kate Moss, at least they’ll know how to look fantastic in every family photo.


Family Session

Cancers are all about family time. Whether that’s a biological family or found family, they are nurturing and caring to those they love. They have a deep trust for those close to them. Cancers lead emotional lives and feel things deeply. They love material items that feel sentimental. And that’s why a family session is perfect for a Cancer.

Capturing the intimate relationships of a family in photography will become a treasured heirloom for years to come. Family photos are essential, because you never know when or if the full family will be together again. Life is short, so take the photos.


Royalty Couture Session

With the heart of a lion, Leos live big and bold. Always the center of attention, Leos have no problem delving into the dramatics. Whether they’re an actor or a CEO, they always put on a show. They lead with confidence and are more comfortable at the front of the pack.

And that’s why a Leo needs a luxury, royal, couture photoshoot. I’m not talking editorial. I’m talking big, brassy, and luxe. Gold necklace, expensive gown, topped off with an elegant crown. We’re not looking for subtle glamour. They’re loud and brassy with their elegance.



With a Virgo, everything must have a practical purpose. They’re hellbent on being as productive as possible. They analyze everything, from their friends’ text messages to business spreadsheets.

A Virgo will feel like a royalty couture session is a waste of money and time. For a Virgo, the best photography session would be updating business headshots. It’s practical, but there’s no reason they can’t look incredible in the process.


Event Photography

Libras maintain the peace, whether that’s at the office or within a friend group. They thrive in environments with balance and harmony. Libras have a natural tendency to become people pleasers, because they find that’s the best way to maintain that balance they crave. This sign is considered the diplomat of the Zodiac.

A Libra would be most interested in photo coverage of an event they are hosting. Libras have a natural skill for hosting, whether that’s scheduling the work Christmas mixer or hosting Friendsgiving. They want to capture those memories and make sure everyone gets equal face time with the camera. They’ll feel a swell of pride and joy when someone says they really like the way they look in the photos.



Scorpios are the spicy Zodiac signs. They’ve got a certain intensity about them that’s hard to ignore. They can come across as elusive, because they don’t immediately open up with strangers. This also gives them an air of mystery.

And that’s why a boudoir session with a Scorio would be fire. Boudoir sessions give you the opportunity to feel empowered and sexy at the same time. This intensity will come across in their posing and facial expressions. Whether they get the photos done for a partner or for them damn selves, it doesn’t matter. The photos are going to look bomb.

Goddess Session

A Sagittarius has high standards. They have lofty ideas and grand beliefs on what the world should be like. Sagittariuses are on a lifelong quest for knowledge. They have an insatiable curiosity, and want to know how to make the world a better place.

A Sagittarius would thrive in a Goddess empowerment session. Wearing ethereal robes and in some elegant location, a Sagittarius would look incredible.


Milestone Sessions

Capricorns are on a quest to be as organized as possible. They’re self-starters that thrive due to their patience and perseverance. They dedicate themselves to their cause, whether that cause is a small business or raising a family. Whatever they’re up to, all their ducks will be in a row.

And that’s why Capricorns will be killer at scheduling milestone sessions. Most milestone sessions are reserved for kids: newborn, 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, cake smash. But a milestone session could be for someone losing weight, overcoming and documenting a particular battle, or any other time period where you’d want to document change. Most signs would schedule the first session with excitement, but forget to do the follow up sessions. Capricorns wouldn’t miss a single session!


Gifting a Photoshoot

An Aquarius is driven by the need to make the world a better place. They use their intelligence to find ways to help people. They may be a bit unconventional, but that only serves them in their mission to help people in unique ways.

And that’s why an Aquarius would gift a photo session to a family in need. If they signed up for an adopt a family program for Christmas, they would want to give them the gift of family memories. If a neighbor was pregnant, they would want to make sure they could have professional newborn photos taken. Gifting them the session would make sure they could have this once in a lifetime opportunity without having to cut corners elsewhere.

If you feel this fits you as an Aquarius, Still Poetry Photography offers gift cards for sessions!


Conceptual Photography

As the last sign of the Zodiac, Pisces have a piece of all the signs’ traits within them. They’ve learned the lessons of all the other signs and have used those teachings to make themselves a more well-rounded person.

Pisces have their heads in the clouds. They daydream and find themselves lost in their own world. They have sharp intuition and have empathy for those around them.

And that’s why Pisces would shine in a conceptual photography shoot. They don’t want to just do something editorial. They want something super artsy to showcase their creativity. Their shoot might be a creative take on mental illness. Or maybe they want to replicate the style of a famous impressionist in a shoot. Their shoot will be rich with symbolism and deeper meanings.
