Modeling Poses - headshots

The well known - Pouty/Moody go away glance.

The Celebrity - Look away and they can't see your beautiful face.

The Look Down - look at the floor/ground/carpet so that your eyes don't show.

The Look Up - only achieved by having your photographer have 15 live birdies dancing on her head.

The Full on Mug Shot - this look is only achieved by having the photographer dangle a whole leg of lamb in her teeth, while coated in a layer of fancy feast.
My mum says sometimes it takes a bit of work to get a nice photo of me. I don't know what she is talking about, they're all great.

There's no such thing as a bad shot of you, Poppy! Although I especially like the ones of you looking at the camera so I can see your pretty face.

The Whiskeratti said...

Well, Poppy, you do take a fantastic picture.

Tracey and Huffle said...

Strangely, my mum says exactly the same thing. I don't know what she's talking about either.

Your photos always look good Poppy.

Madi and Mom said...

Poppy Q you have the super model look down perfectly!! I agree with Mum, you and Madi make us stand on our heads doing tricks before you'll look at us. Very lovely pictures today. Madi and Mom

Kari said...

Gandalf, Grayson and Whitey said...

Poppy Q, you are so right. They are all fabulous shots! Although we like the idea of 15 dancing birdies on your Mom's head! hahahaha!

The Kitty Krew said...

Lovely pictures as always, Poppy. We don't know why the beans think it's such a chore. (Maybe because we hate the flashy box thing and run away when we see it pointed at us? Hmm....)

Purrs and hugs,
The Kitty Krew

Forever Foster said...

The last two photos are absolutely lovely. Have you seen that new invention that responds to photo flashes by making a burst of light itself, for celebrities? We want one of those!

The Kool-Kittie-Krew said...

Poppy, you ARE model material! Tell yer mom to sign you up!!!

Laila and Minchie said...

Beautiful headshots Poppy! What a great subject you are!

Angel and Kirby said...

They are all great. But I understand what Mom means!

Reese =^..^= said...

I'm impressed that you looked right at the camera. Now my momma bean thinks I shoul be able to do that.

Dory's Backyard said...

I think you make a very puuurrrrtyyy model!!


Jasmim said...

Oh ! Very nice =)
Are very cute !

Amy said...

Those are great pictures - I love the looking down shot - very coy! And I am impressed your mom only had to have a leg of lamb in her teeth and be coated in Fancy Feast to get that last shot - if my kitties aren't looking I don't think even that could get them to pose!

Cheyenne -Millie said...

Moms are silly! You are right on Poppy! All those photos are good! My mom has had all kinds of beautiful photos of the back of my head... and me looking the other way! Then she deletes them!!!

The Island Cats said...

We agree, Poppy...not a bad one in the bunch...

Monty Q. Kat said...

You need to stop by today, Poppy!

Daisy said...

Poppy Q, you are such a glamorous model!

JC said...

I hope you got some treats after that hard day of modeling ... not easy to have every hair in place and be ready for 'that' shot ...

Next time ... if you feel like it ... a smile too ... or was that it in the last photo

pughy said...

All beautiful shots of you, jist lovely...

Hugs GJ xx

Eric and Flynn said...

Those are all lovely photos of you Poppy. Mum says she has the same trouble getting me to look at the camera.She is wondering where she will get 15 live dancing birdies.

SophieKitty said...

That was very thoughtful of your Mum to douse herself in Fancy Feast! Did you eat it later?

Poppy Q, you're beautiful!

Tober the Cat said...

Oh, Poppy, tell your mum that's just crazy-talk! My photographer complains that she can't get pictures of me "doing" anything. . .

Tell your mum ANY picture of you is a special and good picture!
