Since this summer means freedom, it's the perfect opportunity to get together with your entire barkada and enjoy all that the season has to offer. And since this also means you finally get to take a super cute complete squad photo, it's definitely crucial to pick the right pose and look for the perfect shot. We first gave you a list of awesome locations for your shoot, now it's time to give you the right poses and types of photos you can take with a little help from some of your favorite celebrities. So go ahead and scroll down for cool ideas for your next barkada photoshoot!

 1  On a trip with your besties? Do a candid-walking-down-the-street-while-looking-totally-fabulous-photo! This might take a few tries and may not look too candid, but it'll be worth it!

 2  Friendship bracelets are so not dead and are actually really cute. Go ahead and pick one you all like, sport it at the same time, and snap a top shot of all of you wearing them!


 3  We're still all for a cute pyramid photo at the beach with your barkada. Give it your own twist by choosing what formation to make and you'll surely have a blast the entire time you're trying to snap photos.

 4  Recreate a photo booth with a cool wall background, tons of props, and a tri-pod for unlimited shooting options. Remember to talk about all the different fun poses you can take with your friends.

 5  Stand against a textured background like a gate or brick wall in a line and make your cutest or wackiest face! Don't forget to shoot this during day time for the best natural lighting possible.

 6  Twinsie it up by sporting the exact same clothes, hair, and smizes! You can even choose to mimic the different emojis on your smart phone.

 7  Half the fun of formal events is getting dolled up with your besties. Make sure to take advantage of the next debut, prom, or ball and snap cute photos getting ready or chowing down before and after.


 8  After finally getting a nice backdrop for your photo, go ahead and sport matching outfits and each pose a different way for a really cute photo.

 9  Don't feel like being in front of the camera? A group photo of your feet in front of the nice view in front of you will be a really fun photo to take.

 10  You can never go wrong with the classic group hug shot! Plus it's the perfect time to tell your besties just how much they mean to you.
