Be Prepared For Every Holiday Photo Op! ~ #HolidayPhotoReady

Have you ever looked back on a photo and thought, “Oh no, what was I thinking?!” If you answered yes, you aren’t alone. Nearly everyone has been the victim of at least one or two horrifically embarrassing snapshots, and with cell phone cameras giving us the ability to capture a photo virtually anywhere, the number of not-so-flattering photos is only on the rise. While lipstick-stained teeth and un-hip hipster mustaches can be caught on camera at any time of the year, I feel like they’re far more likely to pop up around the holiday season, when there are plenty of parties, events, and occasions perfect for snapping pictures.

I’ll admit, I have my fair share of embarrassing holiday photos. Thankfully, most of them are pictures of me that my parents took when I was a child. In one, I’m red-faced and screaming in my footie pajamas. Apparently, I was convinced that all of the presents under the tree should be mine - I guess I didn’t quite understand the concept of Christmas when I was three.

I’ve also had the pleasure of finding out I’ve had food stuck in my teeth for Lord-knows-how-long thanks to the photo booth at the company Christmas party. Mind you, this photo was snapped at least one hour after I’d eaten anything, meaning I’d had the chance to chat it up with plenty of colleagues and their spouses - and not a single one of them decided to let me know.


Thankfully, the front-facing camera in my phone means I no longer need to rely on others to call out food in my teeth, and while I can’t roll back time to fix my appearance at the moment, I’ve had plenty of opportunities to redeem myself since that cringe-worthy evening.

Whether you’re getting ready to snap a picture for your family’s Christmas card, heading to another holiday party, or enjoying a fun and festive evening with family and friends, it’s a good idea to equip yourself with the tools you need to look and feel your best this holiday season.
