It’s just about time to go back to school, and I know you’re going to be documenting all those school memories with lots and lots of selfies!

You’re going to be reunited with friends you haven’t seen in months and it’s time to snap some updates with your besties!

Although anyone with a smartphone can take a selfie these days, did you know there are some easy tips that will improve the quality + look of your photos?

Yep, it’s true!

Here are our 3 tips on how to take good selfies::

1/ Which is your good side::

We ALL have a good side which is yours?

Take a look in the mirror or hold your phone camera up to see which side you ‘lean to’. Typically we part our hair leaning toward our good side, is this true for you?

Also, try turning inward to give a more lean line.

2/ Good light::

There is such a thing as good light & bad light. You can find good iPhone tips on my Instagram “photo tips” highlight

If you’re at a concert or game in the middle of the day, your best bet is to take a selfie with sunglasses on or a hat that helps give shade relief.

Harsh mid-day sun puts those dark circles under your eyes. If it’s not harsh light, try looking into the light to add sparkle into your eyes! Who doesn’t love a little sparkle 😉

3/ Above & Below::

Shoot slightly above yourself for a slimmer look

  • When shooting from below you’re looking up the nose {no-no!}
  • Shooting straight-on works too, just remember your best side
  • Lower camera angles facing upward do not catch the best light

There ya have it! Three quick + easy tips.
