This ought to get rid of any unattractive shadows, depending on where the light is placed.
 
High-Key Lighting: Use high-key lighting to give off a clean or fresh appearance. Your background will be "blown out" with high-key lighting, which will draw attention to your subject. To do this, equally illuminate a background that is a solid white color, making sure that the light level is at least three stops higher than the level of the subject.
