I’ve joked for a while now that I should give workshops on laughing in photos. I would say if there’s one thing I could teach, it’s that. So, I thought it would be fun for me to share why I even laugh in the first place, and how it’s become my “thing.”
2. It’s flattering. To some degree, it’s this simple. Anytime I saw a candid photo of myself laughing, I felt pretty. I have a sort of crooked smile if I grin or smirk plainly, and I tend to think I have larger features, so reflecting joy in a bigger way looks more attractive on my face. That was all weird to type, but my point is that if you want to be more photogenic, figure out how you like your face to look, and then do that in photos! For me, it’s laughing.
3. My clothes make me happy. When I feel good in my clothes, you can see it. At the end of the day, outfit photos are meant to show off cute outfits I’ve put together that I’ve worn in my real life. I want to inspire people to make better outfits — outfits that make them happy. Looking happy in my photos, honestly happy, hopefully helps you feel empowered to find outfits that make you want to laugh and spin and play too.
So there you have it! I’m a simple gal; I like to look pretty, I laugh when I feel pretty and I feel pretty when I laugh. Do I think laughing will be the next wave of fashun blahgger posing? Probably not, but my signature move isn’t going anywhere!
Bloggers and non-bloggers, have you noticed a trend in your photos or selfies? Do you always touch your face or hair? Do you pop your knee or put your hand on your hip?
