So You Think You're Not Photogenic?

I dread having photos taken of me.  I know that might sound crazy since I take about a thousand photos per month – of everyone else!  I usually freeze with a strained smile, and then my lips do weird things.  Then I become super self conscious about my lips, and then people ask what’s wrong with my lips! So then my face gets distorted as I try to make my lips look normal.  Oh the vicious cycle.

That’s why I was so intrigued when I read this article “10 Easy Steps to Looking More Photogenic.”  I like tips that I can consciously do so I don’t fret about things I can’t control (like my face!).  I like Tip #7 the best: Close your eyes, take a deep breath, open your eyes, and smile! 

So if you don’t think you can take a good photo, try reading these 10 tips!

After 10 years, I finally replaced my last profile photo that I’ve used for business and social media.  Maybe I won’t wait another 10 years to post a new photo!
