Simple Techniques To Look Tall and Thin in Pictures

You wouldn’t think some simple changes on how you pose can make you look both tall and thin, but it makes a huge difference. I had a photo-shoot with my husband and one of my blogger besties, Anjeclica with Crafty Thrifter. She was our second eye and let me tell you it made a huge difference.


For this photo-shoot I’m wearing a cute cold-shoulder pink dress from Francesca’s. My heels match perfectly with this dress, but I had my shoes way before I bought my dress. The two look like that they were made for each other. My heels are from Dillards.


This photo-shoot went so smooth because of my friend’s second eye. Her tips combined with what I know, made this photo-shoot go amazingly well! I’m listing some simple techniques to use and do, to make yourself look tall and thin in your picture.

Techniques To Use To Make Yourself Look Tall & Thin in Pictures

  1. It helps when you have a second eye besides the person who is taking the picture. They are able to see just you without having to worry about the lighting, settings, or anything else. They can give you some great tips since they are only concentrated on you.
  2. If you want to look taller than have your photographer get lower than you. This will elongate your legs, which will make you look tall.
  3. If you want to hide your stomach, you want to stand tall and lean your upper body forward a little bit like in this picture.
  4. Never stand directly straight in front of the camera. It will make you look bigger. You want to angle yourself. Pick your best side and turn that way.
  5. Use your hair and your arms to distract from your mid-section.
  6. Most importantly wear heels, and stand up straight.

This was actually one of my favorite fashion posts because I felt like I looked great. The pictures made me look tall and thin. In all reality, I was hiding a lot of fat on my mid section.

I’m Not Good At Parenting My Teen

If you have a teen or even a preteen, they have an uncanny way of making you feel like a bad parent. It was easy when they thought I was the best mom ever and all I had to do was make a treat. In all honesty I feel like a bad parent and it comes to my mind more often than I would like to admit. Understand, I didn’t say I’m not a good parent I just feel like I’m just not good at parenting my teen. At least I wasn’t at first, until I realized I needed to change things up.

Unique and Fun Places in Shenandoah Texas

We moved from Houston (Kingwood) last year in July. We decided to take a family vacation back near our old stomping grounds. There is a lot to do in the Houston area. One of our favorite spots is around the Woodlands. One mile south of the woodlands is a very nice little city called Shenandoah. To me it is close enough to the Woodlands to be considered the same. These cities have so much to do that the two days we had went by way too fast.

Fried Deviled Eggs

I’m sure you have eaten deviled eggs before, but have you had fried deviled eggs? We tried something different and we love it! We made a video of the process so make sure you check that out, link below. We have an air fryer that doesn’t use any oil. We were pleasantly surprised about how well the air fryer works. It makes your food crispy, just like a regular deep fryer, but with a very little oil. A little trick that we use to make the batter extra crispy is to spray the food with olive oil before putting it in the air fryer. This is a way healthier alternative, but if you prefer oil you can use a regular deep fryer. Easter is coming up and this would be a great appetizer to give to your guests.

Spring Fashion For Her

I love everything about spring, the warm weather, the flowers blooming, and all of the beautiful colors. I especially love all of the cute clothes that the stores carry.

I can walk into the store, take a look around, and I just know it’s springtime because everything is so colorful. Normally I am a pretty quick shopper, but not during the spring season. I take my time and look through all of the racks. To me, it’s my breath of fresh air.
