You guys - it's picture day at school today! Even I get so nervous to be in front of the camera from time to time!! And of course my children were up having a party at 3am so I'm exhausted and overslept this morning. But not to worry - I'll only have this photo on my school ID and lanyard to haunt me for the rest of the school year!
This reminds me of my favorite flattering photo tip ... eliminating the dreaded double chin! We all have it - it makes no difference your size or age. There is skin on our necks and our natural posture doesn't tend to be the most flattering. (Please excuse the mug shot selfie ... but you know, this is real life!)
How to eliminate it? Stick your chin out! I tell my clients to think of a chicken - elongate your neck and jut your chin forward, just a tad. It certainly feels funny, but it looks great for photos!
I'll be sure to share my school portrait when they come in. But for now, here's last year's mug shot - 9 months pregnant and swollen with 90+ degree days! This year's photo has got to be better!
