Are you a more quite, reserved type of person and feeling nervous about being in front of the camera for your online dating photos?

But having great online dating photos is key to making connections with people you want to meet and date. These are my top tips on how to get the best online dating photos for introverts.

If you’re not a “big smiles” type of person- that’s okay, there is a still a way to evoke the “smile within”. The energy of this internal feeling translates through body language, a twinkle in your eye and a softness around your mouth. How do you rally that feeling? Think about cuddles with your pet, the warmth of hugging a dear friend, the goofiness of your children, the comfort of a delicious soup, the time your boss gave you a huge compliment, the joy of making someone else happy…. These thoughts can help your body relax and begin to evoke natural and authentic responses. As the feelings arise, we can capture them in photos.
As your dating photographer, I’ll cue up the thoughts and help you drop into places of natural relaxation and expression.
