      Thank you! I’m so glad you liked it! I think you’re a great poser! (It’s harder than it looks, right?) Hugs to you, and thanks for your comment! xoxo Suzy

    Hi Suzy,

    I love these tips! And they come not a moment too soon, as I’ll be in lots of photos next month when our oldest son gets married. I don’t love having my picture taken, but what’s worse than having it taken is looking at the resulting photo and seeing my discomfort coming through loud and clear … awkward! I think I’ll take your advice to heart and actually rehearse the tips you’ve given.

    Thank you, Suzy!

      Lauren, Congratulations! I’m so happy for you and your family! Yay! I’m so glad you think these will help. My best advice would be to practice in front of the mirror as much as you can before the wedding so you don’t have to think about it too much when the photos are actually being taken. You should just enjoy yourself that day and let your joy reflect on your sweet face! Thank you so much for sharing and for your comment. xoxo Suzy

    Just texted the link to all my BFFs – such helpful info! When we take a group pic, it’s hilarious because everyone argues about where to stand, etc. Merry Christmas to Empty Nest Blessed!

    Hi Suzy,

    These tips are excellent. i’m not photogenic so I need all the help I can get. I still haven’t perfected the perfect pose, but working on it. That’s why I love this post. Sooooooo helpful!

      I hear you! It’s tough! It always feels silly to practice in the mirror, but it really does help! Once you’re all dressed for the event or get-together, take a sec to practice in your full-length mirror. When it comes time for the photo, you’ll be all ready! Let your beauty shine through, Nancy! Thanks so much for your comment! xoxo Suzy

    Such great information.
    I’m usually the shortest so on the end often, but I’ve never thought how strategic that could be. Hmm…
    Thank you.
    Also…Beautiful family!

      Thank you for your sweet comment! I honestly never thought about the fact that the shortest person usually gets relegated to the end!!! Wow! That’s great for you! Now you know that it is the ABSOLUTE most flattering place to stand and you are going to be the most stunning one in the photo! YAYAYAYAY!!! Happy New Year and thank you so much for reading and leaving me a comment! xoxo Suzy
