In this blog post I am going to share the one, surefire way to look great in any photograph.
STEP ONE: Get in front of the camera.
That's it! You are now photogenic. Good job!
Seriously, that's all it takes.
Will it make you a supermodel? No. Only one in a thousand people have the kind of bone structure that makes photographers weak in the knees. That isn't the important thing, and it's not why we want to photograph you.
You deserve to exist in photographs. Not because of your looks, either. Because you are the only YOU there is. No one can ever replicate or replace that. You will never be made more valuable by makeup, the loss of 5 pounds, or perfect teeth.
You are irreplaceable. The people who love you deserve to have images of you and you deserve to see yourself as exactly what you are: unique, irreplaceable, one of a kind.
My favorite part of being a portrait artist, though, is creating a fantasy world where you get to see yourself not only as the special snowflake you are, but also as the person you dream of being.
