Say cheese! Looking great in holiday photos

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, and if your family is anything like mine, the cameras will be out in full force. Below are a few quick tips to keep you smiling now – and in a few years when you look back at your holiday memories.

A ¾ view is instantly slimming. Stand with the body turned away from the camera and turn your upper body toward the camera. And don’t forget your mother’s advice and stand up straight.

Hand on hip please. Take a tip from Miss USA contestants and actresses walking the red carpet. No matter how thin and toned your upper body is, if you have exposed arms, the flesh will “pouch” if your arms are next to your body. A hand on the hip is an easy and effective solution.

Solid, bright colors have a “wow” factor. Large prints just make you look… large. And who wants to add 10 lbs. before they’ve eaten any turkey?

Ditch the glasses. The glare can ruin a photo. Plus, you have beautiful eyes – show them off!

Enjoy your Thanksgiving!
