When taking photos, I love showing a different side of me, through my emotions! It's fun to be creative and to try new things! It's nice to switch things up a bit, so I am sharing with you 3 simple and easy tips on how to capture emotion in every photo! Not everyone is a natural in front of a camera lens, and when forced to smiles, so these tips should cure the camera shyness! If you have any tips yourself, share in the comments below because I always love trying new ideas and taking photos a different way! 

Take lots of photos. Sometimes its awkward to stand in front of a camera and make silly faces, to allow yourself to feel comfortable and ready by taking many warm-up photos before hand.

Capture in-between moments. For me, the best photos taken, are the ones I wasn't expecting! It's when my smiles are relaxed, not focused on the camera lens, and I have more of a natural pose. When taking photos of others, or taking them yourself with a tripod, always been ready with the camera in your hand keeping an eye out for those moments when your subject would lest aspect a photo!

Experiment with a full range of emotion. I love trying new poses, and silly faces. But I've noticed when I experiment with more variety of emotion, it breaks the ice; I become more fun, serious, flirty, happy, and even sad! And depending on your outfit, usually your able to capture these emotions perfectly with the way you feel!
