Do you ever find it hard to smile for pictures?
Its not that you’re unhappy, but suddenly when it is time to shine in front of a camera you’re filled with self-consciousness…
I think this happens to all of us at least from time to time. And it really is a tragedy. Because as moms we pass this on to our kids or others who look up to us. I went out to take a bunch of pics for a site redesign. I desperately need a cleaner look for my blog… but as I got ready to take pictures I just couldn't seem to do it.
I was either squinting, had my eyes closed, had a fake smile because I was trying too hard to make sure I was smiling. Eventually I just started making some funny faces trying to relax and those were some of my favorite pictures. Last year I wrote a post about How to Look Beautiful in your pictures… Now I just need to figure out how to relax and smile for pictures!
It was nice though having my hubbie take the pics to say ok… that’s a face smile try again.
How do you keep your pictures cute, but real?
