We asked Emmelina for her top tips on how to relax in front of the camera. Here's what she had to say:
This is usually very much to do with your relationship with the photographer. If they make you feel relaxed and comfortable then usually this will show in the photos.
It can be tough to not feel awkward whilst a big lens is directed at you but you MUST REMEMBER that they are your photos, you choose what to do with them after. So if you don’t like a certain photo of yourself then its not a problem because your choosing where they go.
It can take time for a photographer to change setting on their camera to suit the ever changing light so be patient, don’t use your ‘smeyesing’ (smiling with your eyes) until they tell you they are ready. Bring this up to them before hand on the day to make sure they help direct you rather than you giving your best smile and they weren’t ready yet.
Don’t feel you have to smile perfectly in every photo. The aim is to capture all emotions through out the day so that frown or pensive look works too.
Lastly, remember your photographer is there to capture your perfect day - so relax and enjoy it and the happiness will shine through!
