How to Be Less Awkward on Camera

Soooo many people reach out to me for photos and share that they think they're AWKWARD in front of the camera. Is this you too?

Honestly, it's nothing to worry about in these types of photo sessions because we plan stories around your business and daily routines so you just carry on about your business while I document how real you are! It's as easy as that.

Plus, you know what? Awkward-ness is real, endearing, and relatable. And authenticity draws people in. Truly.

The photos I share of myself always get higher engagement than ones I share of anything else. That's because people crave connecting with the person behind the brand. They want to know your true you and it's healthier to share that anyway. The last thing you want is to drive someone mad comparing themselves to your seemingly perfect life. No way - show the messy, real, human side and people will love you for it.

Here's a bit of advice to help guide you through:

embrace the awkward

Just go with it and be yourself. Take a deep breath and throw your whole self into the process. Don't overthink it and allow yourself to have fun!

prep that playlist

Gather your favorite anthems to help you get out of your head and into the groove. Music is POWERFUL and you are magic. Let the music fuel it.

Have you seen RuPaul's queens transform during drag race lipsyncs?

submit to the joy

I don't know what it is but especially in England I've run into so many women who deny themselves certain types of joy. They openly allow themselves to NOT laugh at silly things. I WILL be playful and most likely telling jokes during all of my shoots. Welcome the laughter (even if you have to fake it) and embrace the enjoyment - it will shine through naturally in your images.

come with a plan

Refresh your Brand full day shoots come with a planning session where together we formulate a schedule and key shot list to work through during the day. The simplicity of having a specific mission and working off a list can be all it takes to help people get into photo mode.

find the perfect match

Choosing a photographer that can not only relate to the awkward, but can also help you shoot through it is vital in coming out of your shoot with images you're proud of!

boost your camera confidence

Then there's all the other good stuff that will make you feel like a powerful boss and help you boost your confidence using tools like:

+ affirmations

+ breathing excersices

+ meditation

+ visualizations

+ embodiment

+ hair and makeup

+ killer wardrobe



If we all think we're awkward...are any of us actually awkward?
