Cool, let me help:



First, what kind of camera do you have? Is it digital or one of those crappy ones from the drug store? If it's the drug store kind, they're supposed to take bad pictures. If it's digital, you can't do much to change the camera, (and you probably don't want to buy another one) though you can take a good picture.



Eyes: Since you have big eyes, you should work on emphasizing them. So maybe wear makeup that would make them pop like some eyeshadow and liner. Make your face-eyes, the center of the photo.



Hair: Wear it down in long waves or with a cute accesory. Never wear your hair up in a ponytail if you want to take a flattering photo. It emphasizes your facial flaws and hides your beautiful hair!



Body: Since you said you had blemishes you can do one of two things:



1) Wear a high-coverage foundation/concealer



2) Edit with PhotoShop (though you may feel guilty afterwards)



Since you have a petite/slim body type, stay away from teased hair, baggy clothes and big jewelry. These will overpower your delicate frame and make you look smaller then you actually are.



Although, a full body photo might not be the best choice, it might be the most flattering. Just don't stand next to a tree or an uber-tall person... lol!



This article was helpful and there are more like them on Google, WikiHow, eHow etc.

Good luck! Post the pics when you're done! :)

sometimes playing around with the settings you can find the one for Inside and it will take better photos and if your lighting is good inside cover the flash up and see if the photo is better



also one hand usually from an upward view looking down on you or standing in a mirror and taking the photo from your chest height can help cause you can see what your taking. hold the camera close to your body
