Most people are not aware of the fact that when they look in the mirror, they CHOOSE the angle. There are usually only two, sometimes three angles they will "check" out, and this becomes their perception of what they look like.
Check it out for yourself sometime. You will look in the mirror a certain way, cock your head a bit...slightly different angle, and you are good to go.
That is one reason for the "shock" when the photographer does not honor your angle preference, but most people don't seem to mind. It is obviously vanity, at least a mild form....

Knowing that your previous photographs have been less than satisfactory the natural reaction is to put your ‘camera face’ on when confronted with a camera (knowing that this next photo is going to be less than satisfactory) you have now entered the catch 22 scenario.
Solution…….candid shots taken by someone who understands your ‘problem’.
Ideally you would be positioned in front of the camera (mounted on a tripod) and drawn in to conversation with the photographer who can then take shots at unexpected moments during the session, this will produce a more natural image of you compared to the usual forced smile, which is not the real you.
