LEFT: Phone was held below chin and shooting upwards. Don't do this. Creates the illusion of a double chin, shows shadows, fine lines, and imperfections.
MIDDLE: Phone was held straight on to face. Looks ok, but there's a better option
RIGHT: Phone was held just slightly higher than my eyeline. It opens the eyes more, defines the jawline, and lights the face better.
I hope this is helpful!
Go practice this! Take a shot below, straight on, and then above to compare.
You will be amazed!
P.S. - no filters or photoshop used. Keepin' it real ya'll. Shot in a bathroom. 😊

"I'm not scared to be seen, I make no apologies, this is me"
This my Before and After.
I'm showing you this because I want to be real with you.
It's OK to get glammed up and have a photoshoot.
It's OK to want to bring out another side of yourself that you've been hiding.
It's OK to do something for YOU for a change.Maybe you’ve recently gone through a milestone. Turned 40, 50, or 60.
Maybe your baby is graduating high school this month and you’re thinking what now.
Or maybe you just want to be seen again.
