I saw a pin on Pinterest that had exercises for the muscles in your neck to make your chin look nicer, maybe that would help?

@Duckie731:  My daughter always seems to scrunch her face for photos causing a double chin that she doesn’t really have in real life.  I mentioned that I was worried about this to our photographer prior to our engagement pics & she kept reminding my daughter to stick her forehead out.  It sounds really weird but it automatically elongates your neck and eliminates any double chin while still looking completely natural.

Shanna777’s advice is gold. I’m a photographer myself, and I CONSTANTLY tell my clients to pull their forehead towards the camera, as if you were in the middle of a chicken-like headbob. =P It feels a little weird at first, but it gives your whole jawline AMAZING definition, and slims the face significantly. Another thing is that if you’re even just a tad bit nervous about your photos, you’re more likely to tighten up your whole body, and that might make a double chin more obvious. Just try to stay relaxed, and make sure you bring up your concerns to your photographer. I’m sure they’ll make an effort to work with the most flattering angles, and they’ll be there to remind you of the forehead trick. Good luck! 🙂

push your head slightly forward (but not down) it stretches your neck and helps reduce the appearance of a double chin.

Tyra banks said to swallow and push your forehead out. It works!

I’m a photographer… who is also chubby with a bit of a double chin. It might feel awkward but:

1. Put your chin out/stretching your neck then slightly tilt your chin down.

or

2. Cup your tongue and suck the roof of your mouth. It pulls the skin of your jaw up (:
