How about practice makes you comfortable with You!
Get in front of a mirror, Stand up straight like there is a string attached to the top of your head, chest out, shoulders relaxed.
For women you want to create an S curve with your body. To do this put your body weight on one foot then move the other foot across the other foot and a little froward. Keep you weight on that back foot! Turn a little at the waist this should happen naturally when you move your foot. Now create space with your arms. You can put one hand on your lower hip and the other just a little higher. Tilt you head just a bit. Practice Your smile and many looks until you start laughing and enjoying YOU!
For Men you want to create strength. Feet Firmly planted straight on or a little to the side as you look in the mirror. Arms Crossed, practice your smile, sexy smirk, slight grin and smile with the eyes. Watch your hands in pockets...fingers out thumb in pocket or fingers in pocket thumb out are the best.
A fun practice is to look at others that you admire and practice their poses.
Confidence In Yourself
"You Are Unique, One Of a Kind"
Being Grateful for all You are. Everyday tell yourself in the mirror that "I am Beautiful" or "I am Handsome"
Let your love of who You are create an energy around you that draws the best of You out.
The results will be a greater vision of yourself and this will show in your eyes and smile.
Show Your Body - Don't Hide It
In our day to life we love our loose and layered clothing but just like they say about TV putting 10 lbs on you
The camera photos can put more like 20 to 30 lbs if your clothing does not fit your body.
Baggy clothing is not your best bet for getting a flattering photo of you.
Also your under garments either help your clothes fall the way they were made too or they get hung up on your body
in places you do not want them too.
Your Best Side
Do You know Yours?
If you do make sure that side of your face is always at the camera.
Time to look in the mirror again and take a look with 2/3rd of your face left and right. Take some selfies if you want and look at those to determine which you like best.

What Is Posture About?
The double chin, dropping jaw line, looking slouchy
Everyone of us has had that photo where you go.."What the h*!!, when did that happen?"
Body posture is so important to get rid of the I do not care what I look like pose!
Back to the mirror. Stand sideways like normal. Now pretend someone is pulling on a string at the top of your head
watch how your posture changes. For the jaw line bring it out (they always say like a turtle) towards the camera,
now practice out up or down slightly to see which looks best for your face.
Now wasn't that fun!
Movement and Good Music
Get comfortable in front of the camera and music is a great way to feel right at home with yourself.
Find the music that makes you want to move and brings your soul alive.
