Not all photos need to be serious. It’s important to practice in front of a mirror to see what it feels like when you’re smiling in certain ways and how your features are affected. Watch this video for some helpful tips on smiling in your photo shoot.

Practicing will make you more comfortable front of a camera, which will make your smile appear more natural in your photos. Try laughing during your photo shoot to appear genuine and, if you have a gummy smile, try holding your upper lip lower.
