please help - I have to accompany my Mum on official engagements (she is a local politician) and have to pose for photos quite often. I am acutely aware that I look like I am forcing a smile or just grimacing when the photos come out
Anyone a model or could give me some tips about what to do when a photograoher says "Ok - smile, please..." (sometimes quite a few times in succession)
My DH is good at getting his taken tho and always looks naturally happy and smiley (grr!). His trick is to think of something that makes him laugh and actually do a small giggle as the picture is being taken. In the same way that you'd laugh if someone said something funny to you right at that moment.
I haven't mastered it, I'm too self conscious, but it works for him, he always looks great in pics and I look like his gormless side kick
I will work on the "trying to think of something funny" and, mrsmaidamess - behine my upper front teeth or lower? (you see - I am taking this terribly seriously but mostly don't won't to let my Mum down )
I have learnt the turn slightly sideways thing but will work on the chin up as well.
Losing the few extra pounds I am hauling about will probably help too
