If you’re lucky， when you look back at your school pictures over the years， you’ll have some that are cute， a few that are funny， and lots that make you smile. But no matter what， a great school picture is a reminder of who you were that year.
Sarah Smith and Kelvin Miller are from Lifetouch， a photography company that has been taking school pictures for 80 years. Here， they share their top tips for taking a smile-worthy photo.
？ You， your eyes， and your smile are the star of the show， not your clothes. So don’t wear anything that’s really busy-like a loud pattern or too bright shade — that will steal attention away from your face.
？ Don’t over-practice your smile. The longer a smile is on your face， the less authentic it is. Try thinking about something that makes you laugh —maybe a joke or something silly a friend said —to make your smile look sincere.
？ Try not to get your hair cut less than a fortnight before a picture day. That way it will have grown out to look more natural.
？ If you are feeling nervous or tense， try yawning. This will relax all the muscles in your body， helping you to feel and look a bit more natural.

Last month our class project was to make a school newspaper. Our teacher divided us into groups and each group was supposed to work on a column. I missed the first planning meeting because of a dentist appointment so my group filled me in the next day. “We decided to do a gossip column，” Emily informed me. “We take along our notebooks and pay extra-close attention to everything happening around us.”
