“I don’t like my smile – do I have to smile for photos?”

“I don’t like my smile – do I have to smile for photos?”

My answer to this frequently asked question:

Firstly, I hear you. I have a squiggle that appears under my nose when I smile (see attached photo.) I used to be so self-conscious about it that I never wanted to smile for photos, and when I laughed, I used to cover my mouth (I still do that from time to time, out of habit)

And then I mentioned my squiggle to a bunch of friends at a party & they were all confused “your what?!” They had no clue what I meant. Then I pointed to it, they all said “Oh right, yeah” and then we moved on (apart from one friend who still makes fun of it..you know who you are 🤣)

I’m saying this in the hope that maybe you’ll allow yourself to release this/let it go next time you’re having your photos taken. It’s hard not to judge ourselves, pick ourselves to pieces, but if you need to have photos taken, how much nicer would it be if you could just try something different & go easier on yourself?
