Once upon a time, getting your photo taken was a special occasion. You lined up with your classmates for school picture day, for example, or your family all headed down to the local portrait studio for an annual family photo. Today, cameras are everywhere (you probably have one in your pocket or purse right now), and there's the expectation that everyone is going to be camera ready, with a photogenic smile, at all times.
If you worry and cringe every time your friends post a picture of you on social media where you don't look your best, relax! There are a few things you can do to get a more photogenic smile and to look more confident and composed in photos, no matter where or when they're taken.
