PHOTO TIP : How to Look slimmer in Every Photo | Phoenix AZ Portrait Photographer

It doesn’t matter if it’s an iPhone picture or a professional session, looking good in pictures can make or break your day, right?  If you take a selfie that turns out awkward, UGH! You swear off selfies forever, right?! But, if the picture actually turns out good and you like how you look, then you relax, smile and feel pretty dang awesome! I'm sharing another tip for liking how you look in every photo you take!

Tip #1: Turn your body.

We’ve seen the celebrities do it: Slightly turn your body sideways (toward the camera) planting one foot in front of the other. Then point your toe in the direction of the camera and place your weight on your back foot. Facing the lens straight-on usually makes you appear larger, more square. Ladies, next time you take a photo with your honey, snuggle up and use my Belly Button to Hip pose (as seen below).

Tip #2:  Keep Your Chin Up and Out / Use your Tongue

The next time you are in front of a camera, (heck grab your phone camera right now and try this), just push your neck and forehead TOWARD the camera a little bit. This trick will elongate your neck and help to avoid any unflattering chin angles. Because let’s be honest: no one strives for a double chin.  Another way to give the appearance of a thinner face? Put your tongue on the roof of your mouth while smiling - go ahead, give it a try (you're doing it right now, aren't you?)

Tip #3:  Be aware of your Arms 

Create intentional space between your arms and your torso rather than squeezing arms against your sides. Placing your hand on your hip or loosely on another person are simple and effective poses that helps create a slimmer more flattering look.
