Senior Pictures!!

Yes, you're at the right place. I just HAVE to tell you about our Senior Pictures!! Although my REAL Senior Pictures were taken 20 years ago, Senior Pictures are alive and well around our house!! My sister was back a few years ago for Thanksgiving and she said *Let's take some senior pictures*. I said HUH? She said that her son (my nephew, a real party animal) and all of his college friends take senior pictures all the time.

So here's what you do: Pose for pictures Senior Picture style. Take your picture in weird places but add in those goofy senior poses. This is SO DANG FUN, I can't even begin to tell you how much you'll laugh.

We took Senior Pictures at my crop last weekend and I about died when my friend Marcia lugged this big mirror off the hotel wall and plopped it on the bed. We all had to take turns getting our Senior Pictures taken. Here's mine below, I actually kinda like it!! Remember those mirror shots? OMG, too funny!! But usually they are much goofier, like this Senior Picture of Marcia, below. Who needs those fancy props when you have a fire hydrant!? I love that her purse is around her neck like an old grandma!
Here's one of my brother in law and my niece's husband a few years back. Notice the hand under the chin pose on Brian and the clasped hands on Ron. Again, who needs props when you have a pyramid of beer cans!!
Well, this is totally not related to anything stamping wise. Actually, it's just quite silly. But if you like to laugh and want to be the life of the party, I highly suggest that you become a photographer and take Senior Pictures at your next get together. I better be careful though or I'll probably become some professional photographer or something! Snort!!!!

BAWWWHHH! This is hilarious, but what a fabulous idea! And this sounds like way more fun than actual senior pictures! Love the mirror shot and the fire hydrant, who needs streams and wild flowers when theres a fire hydrant handy!

Priscilla said...

I visited your blog for the first time today, and I have totally enjoyed the idea for Senior Pictures. I am going to do this with my friends in Law School! Great idea.

Courtney Fowler said...

Oh my! I laughed out loud! Thanks for that!

DeeDee said...

Stacy said...

Thank you for the laugh it was desperately needed today and I will be taking senior pics at my next gathering. Too funny! Stacy

How sad, I was mirror deprived when I had my senior pics taken LOL. What about the serious poses where you had to look up in the sky as if you're either really pissed off, or you're pondering what you'd rather be doing. I am sooooo doing this when I go to SU convention in July.

Elaine said...

You are hilarious! I cracked up when I read this post! Also wanted to say THANK YOU for the blog candy!! I can't wait to make something!!:)

Juanita B said...

This is BIG FUN in my book. I love your picture and you look like a High School Senior to me. Thanks for a great idea and sharing it.

I had to laugh at the picture of someone by the fire hydrant. Actually, every year when my twin daughters celebrated their birthdays...my husband had them stand by the fire hydrant to see how much taller they grew. We then compared the pictures to the year before. Just a silly tradition we followed.
