Strike A Pose

Have you entered my giveaway? It ends this Sunday at midnight! If you haven't done so yet, you can do so here

this is a scheduled post (I'm in New Mexico without internet)
I've noticed a trend in my photos. Anytime I'm caught for an impromptu photo or I'm by myself, I've reverted to giving the thumbs up or having the mouth of the south. I don't know when it started or how it got started but it's thriving. As you can see the most recent thumbs up occurred on the plane ride back from California. 
However, here's an example of the thumbs up circa 2008...
The mouth of south. I think that actually started when I was in college. I would get in this sorority photos and would have to be happy/perky all the time and sometimes the fake smiles would just show up.
and yes I do realize what sign we're flashing it was 2005 cut a sister a break
Here's another prime example...

So my question is, do any of you have photos, where you tend to do a certain pose or facial expression? Surely I can't be the only one?! I know Amanda over at It's Blogworthy has mentioned her love of the jazz hands.

I do a lot of sideways poses... I feel like my face isn't as huge if it's at an angle.

I don't think I do! I kind of wish I did though... hmm... maybe I should come up with somehing. Maybe a peace sign? Kissy face? Raised eyebrows?

Meghan said...

Umm, I love these photos! I totally do my best Tyra Banks pose whenever the camera is on me - I "smize" with my eyes and have a hand on a hip!

SOOO funny. I don't know what sign you are flashing. I know...I know...I live under a rock.

Absolutely love this post. It never really occurred to me that we tend to do certain poses more than just once. I am in this phase where I can't smile! I simply look dull...a slight curve maybe so my lips don't look crazy but that's it. My current phase for now. Used the peace sign a lot years ago...but not anymore, unless I'm annoyed by whoever wants to take my pic and then I'm all "Japanese" again. ;)

This got me thinking though...I better go back now and look at my pics from college or high school...haha... ;)

Happy weekend.

xoxo

I rock the jazz hands all day, every day, and it's close cousin the "wave with my mouth open" or "mouth of the south" as you call it. I likes it. :)

Kelsey @ Seattle Smith's said...

My husband loves the thumbs up in almost half of our photos! It kills me!! haha yours are darling though and so fun to look back on!

ModernMom said...

Kelly Marie said...

Love it!

Karren said...

I always put my hand on my hip because I never know what to do with my hands! lol

Ms. Random said...

Anytime my best friend and I take a "silly" photo, we make kissing faces. I don't really know why, but we even have one from her wedding day. It's just what we do!

My Life As I Live It said...

Usually one arm in the air with my finger pointed to the sky, my mouth is usually open as I'm yelling or laughing really loud, 99.9% of the time this pose involves me being completely intoxicated.
