What Not to Do

What not to do when posing for prom pictures.

Don't do the vogue pose if you're double jointed.
You tend to get carried away and freak out your date.


Again, no model poses or facial expressions.
You'll just come out looking mentally challenged.


Don't pout.
It causes premature frown lines and doesn't do anything for your date's attitude.


Don't fight your date.
Heaven forbid you let him know that you're actually stronger than he is
- another quick way to end the date early.


Much better.
Just remember...


His hand is only allowed in that area. No higher, no lower.

I love this post Lori. I don't which is funnier -- the pictures or your commentary!

You actually got some fun pictures. My son went to prom last night and it was like pulling teeth to get a few good ones.

Great pictures, lots of personality. Nice looking couple of kids too. Congrats on having survived

All I ever manage is a few stiff looking standing-still pics! Looks like a lot of fun, and Jessie is absolutely gorgeous!! I mean it - what a beautiful girl! I hope she had a great time.

Hey, did you know that kids who are double-jointed (aka hyper-mobile joints) are more likely to get CFS? Yup. Craig is, too. They think the two traits/predispositions may be genetically linked. Just a fun fact!

Hope she enjoyed the prom! Jamie was all dressed up today for a Sweet Sixteen Bollywood Party at an Indian restaurant. He had fun. This is like the 4th Sweet Sixetnn party this month!

Hi Sue!

Yes, I found out about that when we went to the CFS specialists in Charlotte. They tested her and we kinda laughed - were totally shocked that it's actually a condition! She's been like that her entire life. I won't even tell you what all she can do, but if you've got one at your house, you're probably well aware. :)

Lori said...

Oh, and we got a few serious poses, but Jessie HATES serious pictures. Her date was the serious type and I think we flipped him out.

Very cute post!! Seriously though, what a great looking couple! I have a junior daughter and a senior daughter going to prom May 1. I'll be glad when it's over!

Helene said...

Love the commentary to go along with those pictures! Each one fit the personality of the picture to a T!!

Your daughter looked beautiful!!!! And her date is quite handsome!!!

Hope they had a great time!

I think your daughter is following in your footsteps with a delightful sense of humor. I so loved these prom pictures. She's absolutely beautiful, by the way!

They look like a delightful couple, and it seems they both have a great sense of humor. I'm sure they had a great time.
