Dress for success
If you know in advance you’re going to be photographed, dress all in one color, wear a body shaper, and make sure your clothes fit well.
Check the camera height
Make sure you are not being photographed from below; that angle alone can add up to 50 pounds!
Put your best foot forward
Ladies, if you’re standing, strike a red carpet pose by turning a bit sideways and putting one leg in front of the other, toe pointed at an angle and knee slightly bent. Shift your weight to the back leg.
Cross your legs
If you’re sitting, cross your legs and tuck the calf of the front leg partly behind the bottom leg.
Keep your chin up
To avoid the dreaded double chin, tilt your chin a bit upward.
Position your arms
Position your arms so that they are away from your body. Placing one on a hip is a good look.
Suck in your stomach
Stand up straight, pull your shoulders back, and suck your stomach in and up, like you’re trying to zip up a tight pair of jeans.
Don’t say cheese
Don’t say cheese; it will give you chipmunk cheeks. Just go for a natural smile.
