1. Relax! - The camera is not going to jump out and bite you. Take a more relaxed pose and I promise your picture will come out so much better. Leave the "Cheese" smile at home, take a deep breath and think happy thoughts. Now we have the perfect picture!
Don't hold your breath, either in or out, otherwise you'll appear as though you're tense or suffocating.
If you see the photo coming too late, don’t panic and try to strike a pose. Keep doing what you're doing and try to ignore the camera. It may not turn out perfectly, but you’ve got a better chance than if the camera catches you quickly trying to change your facial expression.
Relax your lip (mouth) region and don't have any delirious thoughts filled with gloom. It's a natural way to appear fresh and appealing in photographs.
Don't be so relaxed that you appear distracted. Distraction or annoyance always shows in the photograph. Just relax and your picture will be perfect.
2. Watch your clothing! There is nothing worse than seeing the end of a body shaper peeking from up under your dress.
3. Don't over do the makeup. The camera catches it all
4. Be prepared to have fun. The thought of taking pictures shouldn't strike the same fear in you as a trip to the dentist. Once you relax, it will be more fun than you ever thought it could be.
