Ho Ho Ho SOS Supermodels!
Do you have a love/hate relationship with the camera?
Do you cringe when a friend tags you in a photo on Facebook?
Well, all of that is about to change!
During this time of year there are photo op’s every time you turn around whether it’s around the tree with family or toasting at a party with your girlfriends- so I wanted to share with you a few simple tips for taking YOUR BEST PHOTOS! I started modeling at 14 and have had PLENTY of years of practice in front of the camera and learned what to tweak to help you look your most flattering + confident! Luckily, these days with the digital cameras we can see it immediately and do as many retakes as we want! Cracks me up when my friends and I take photos together, we all want to check out how we look right away! Screw how your friends look- we look at ourselves in the photo! You know what I’m talking about:-)
Now the camera can be your new BFF!
This is the S-Curve pose that Christie Brinkley made famous! I love that she wasn’t a toothpick. Remember, swivel the hips and bring the shoulders back around. This is by far, the most transforming photoposing tip!

I shared this on Facebook and it really made an impact on several gals! “NEW YEAR…TIME FOR A NEW RED WALLET! As the new year approaches- take the time to cleanse + organize areas of your life that need it so you do not take “clutter” and blockage into 2012. One place to start- HOW DOES YOUR PURSE LOOK? Is it filled with old receipts, gum wrappers? Is is tattered? WHAT ABOUT YOUR WALLET? A great gift you can buy for yourself this season is a NEW RED WALLET: “A new wallet symbolizes being ready to accept new wealth + colors in the red family draw prosperity to you.”-Feng Shui expert, Carol Olmstead. I just got this new Michael Kors- I’m ready for more prosperity in 2012! Go for it girls!
Had to share this awesome quote from my bestie LeeAnne Locken- “You are not a size, you are not a weight, you are not a color, you are not an age, you are not a trophy, you are not a doll, you are a HUMAN and you are BEAUTIFUL!! Never let others define you…you define yourself”! Isn’t that a great mantra to carry into the New Year!?
I love getting comments + feedback- so don’t hesitate to let me know what you want to see!
Wishing you all a fun, fabulous, festive week ahead + a Very Merry Christmas! Hanukkah began today so if you are celebrating– I wish you a HAPPY HANUKKAH!
Remember it’s all about us being more fabulous together!
One thought on “MAKE THE CAMERA YOUR BFF!”
Love the camera tips…..of course it helps if you’re a good looking person when it comes to taking pictures. I mean,I can take pictures of anything BUT me….I am very camera shy these days.
