The way you pose and hold your head in a photo can create or eliminate a double chin.
And usually, it's just one simple adjustment you have to make that will fix the issue.
Push your chin (head) toward the camera. Yes, like a turtle. "Turtle your head"
It will FEEL weird, also like your a chicken, but it looks great from the front and eliminates a double chin! I do it on ALL my clients.
I did a short Facebook Live earlier this year where I demonstrated it. Here's the video: (don't ya love that screenshot of me 🤪)
That's all there is to it! Some super basic adjustments will completely eliminate the issue.

Hey there, Debbie here!
I am the photographer behind the women’s glamour studio, FiftyCentLove Photographie, here in Christiansburg, Virginia.
I'm all about empowering women and helping them see the beauty within themselves.One thing I've found though is that a lot of women are really self-conscious about how they look in photos.
They don't like their arms, they want to look slimmer, they think their smile is fake - you name it!
So to help with this, I hopped on Facebook Live earlier this year to help women with the basics of posing.
And let me tell you - my Facebook audience loved it!
It got such a good response that I decided to organize the videos into a FREE POSING GUIDE series so I could help more women love themselves in pictures.
You'll get one tip a week.
At the end, you'll get my bonus series about What to Wear for my photoshoots.

Many women I talk too who are interested in a Glam Session want to look sexy but don't want to show a lot of skin. Here is a way to do that. A beautiful dress with my gorgeous 1920s style wrap from my studio and I direct you to touch your arm and look down. Simple. You will never feel alone or never hear me say "now look sexy". That's my job to show you what to do and I will never post any pictures unless you've given me permission. You are safe with me.
Glam Sessions are for every woman. No matter what age, no matter what size you are now, and no matter what style of pictures your wanting. You can get professional headshots, fun casual shots, dressy shots, and sexy ones. We have a phone consultation and talk about how you'd like to look and what to wear. I also have some dresses and wraps in my studio to give you something different to try.
If you're interested in a Glam Session, you can book it HERE. If you're on the fence and would like have a complimentary phone consultation, you can book that HERE.
Do it today.
1. You gotta see my new purple chair! Isn't it wonderful?!?!
I love it so much and got to use it this weekend with some new clients. I saw it in Pier 1 a few weeks ago and couldn't stop thinking about it. Have you ever seen something at the store, left, then it was in your brain for the next week or so saying "Buy me, you can pose women on it. Buy me, I promise you'll get your money's worth, Buy ME!" Haha. So I bought it and I haven't regretted it.
2. Charmaine from CharMarie Salon will be my Makeup Artist on 7/14!!

3. Tuesday Tip - How to use window light to take a better selfie
Picture #1 (left) 😝: I was standing with the window on my left side. Side light adds harsh shadows and shows LOTS of imperfections. Not flattering.
Picture #2 (middle) 😕: I did a 180 turn so the window was on my right side. It's darker and my eyes are dark and still shows too many imperfections that we aging women do not want to show.
Picture #3 (right) 🙌: I turned directly towards the window. THIS is how to do it. The light is totally even on my face. This is called "Flat Lighting" It magically hides wrinkles, fine lines, skin texture, and sometimes pimples. This is one way I light my clients in Glam Sessions. It's flattering and it's the best way to take a selfie indoors.
LEFT: Phone was held below chin and shooting upwards. Don't do this. Creates the illusion of a double chin, shows shadows, fine lines, and imperfections.
MIDDLE: Phone was held straight on to face. Looks ok, but there's a better option
RIGHT: Phone was held just slightly higher than my eyeline. It opens the eyes more, defines the jawline, and lights the face better.
I hope this is helpful!
Go practice this! Take a shot below, straight on, and then above to compare.
You will be amazed!
P.S. - no filters or photoshop used. Keepin' it real ya'll. Shot in a bathroom. 😊
