There are lots of photos taken in December as family and friends gather to celebrate their love for one another but sometimes both men and women can become camera shy, especially if the jaw line and chin need refining.

Instead of shying away from photos, here’s how to look terrific each time you pose:  Face the camera. Chin down slightly, now jut your chin out like a turtle, relax your face and smile. Practice this in front of your mirror. Play around with your camera or better yet, have someone snap a few shots while you practice your new pose.

Jackie Silver taught me this tip years ago. I taught this trick to a new friend a few days ago – she was wowed when she saw the photo I took! She looked years younger!
