Being photogenic is all about being in the moment

You must first realise that being “camera shy” is a temporary state. If you stick with these exercises from the get-go, they will go away.
You will strengthen your confidence and learn to be more comfortable taking photographs of yourself simultaneously.
Once you’ve got muscle memory, you’ll be able to forget about nerves and get on with what you’re there for, getting a great headshot of yourself!
🗣 Learn to communicate with your photographer – Tell your photographer what you want to achieve with these shots.
👗 Wear clothing that you feel terrific in – try wearing something colourful and meaningful to you, like crazy underwear and socks. Maybe have a cherished item with you in your pocket.
🎼 Come with a few types of music you know relaxes you.
🔎 Do your research – not all photographers are the same. Some of us specialise in people, others in products, and some in weddings alone.
ℹ Inform the photographer – reiterate any feelings you may have about your appearance on the day.
🤝 Trust the photographer – they should know their job and how to coach a great expression from you.
‼️ FINALLY STOP CONVINCING YOURSELF YOU LOOK LIKE SHIT. WE ALL DO AT SOME POINT IN THE DAY.
