  1. Overdo it on the accessories: Keep accessories minimal to avoid distracting from your face and overall look.

  2. Wear busy patterns or loud colors: Opt for solid colors or subtle patterns that won't detract from your face or overwhelm the viewer.

  3. Force a smile: A genuine smile is always best, so relax and let it come naturally.

  4. Forget to communicate with your photographer: Be sure to communicate any preferences or concerns you have with your photographer to ensure you get the best possible results.
