Strike a pose.
Do you darlings, not vogue-ing. Posing?
Having a few photo opportunities at the weekend one was aghast to see the same old mug shot and identical photo time after time. Dull dull dull.
Oh it isn’t just me, my sister is far worse. Painful in fact. First she grabs you and forces you stand on her right showing her best side. Then it’s sideways on and hand on hip. Now this works beautifully until met with another poser aka moi!
Then both look foolish and not unlike Toby jugs.
Two people sideways on, showing their good side look like they’re dancing at best. More tricks than a children’s party magician . Another good one is to stand slightly behind the already chunkier sister so you look sylph like by comparison. Making sure the other is nearer the camera. Terrible non?
Please note that said chunkier sister is aware of these tricks and refuses to comply to at least one of the manoeuvres . The battle is not lost.
The queen of the one stock pose must surely be la Beckham. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. Very well practised and super flattering. Forming an S , one foot behind the other to slim the silhouette and pout!!! Et voila!!
Identical? Oui !!!!
Homework for tonight.
