Posing in a swimsuit doesn't have to be hard, and this Pinay entrepreneur slash beach babe is proof.

There are two main things we love about model-turned-entrepreneur Lauren Reid's Instagram. The first is her handle— @laurenreidabook is just so clever! The second thing would have to be her easy, relaxed confidence. Often barefaced and sporting a glowy tan, Lauren epitomizes that effortless beach babe look.

When she's not busy whipping up tasty pastries or running her Siargao-based business, Sirena Spa, she's often lounging poolside or getting some fresh air by the sea. In addition to a chic collection of swimsuits, Lauren also has an aspirationally laidback repertoire of poses as well; she really knows her angles, and never looks like she's trying too hard. In fact, a lot of her poses are perfect for the camera-shy, too! 

Without further ado, here are 10 low-key poses to try, as seen on Lauren Reid: 

1. Lay on your side and prop your head up with your hand. This pose makes for a pretty portrait!

2. Still feeling a little bit camera-shy? Opt for a silhouette photo instead. Perch sideways on a bench (or, in Lauren's case, the rim of a bathtub), and allow the natural light to bounce off your body.

3. If your view is this picturesque, you won't need to scramble for a super glam pose. Prop yourself up by the lip of the pool, and take in the scenery.

4. Those who identify as shy girls will benefit from this pose—no one will fault you for covering your face. It'll appear as if you're just taking care to block out the sun's harmful rays! Lie back, angle one leg over the other, and hold a cute hat over your face. Easy!

5. Lean against an Instagrammable wall, pop out your hip, and look down. Effortlessly sultry!

6. This simple pose will never let you down. Just lean against the wall of the pool, and stretch back your arms. Round out your shoulders and elongate your neck for a subtly glamorous look.

7. Flaunt your ink! Recline while facing a light source, and make sure that your tattoos are in full view. Curl up one leg, and use your other hand to slightly lift your bikini.

8. Stand tall, lean against a tree, and cross on leg over the other. Don't hesitate to pose with your drink, too!

9. Take advantage of the breeze! Allow the wind to blow through your hair and pose naturally by the boat rails. Lightly grip the rails, lean back a bit, and flash a smile.

10. It's no secret taking a pic from a low angle yields flattering results! You can rest both you hands on your head and slightly angle your body away from the camera.
