    A Theory of Parenting - Social Etiquette

    in Moms and Family

    May 13, 2015

    Today our show is on Social Etiquette!

    www.wikipedia.com says:

    Etiquette:  is a code of behavior that delineates expectations for social behavior according to contemporary conventional norms within a society, social class, or group

    Disease avoidance behavior can sometimes be compromised in the performance of courtesy manners.  Violations of courtesy manners most commonly results in social disapproval from peers

     A rule of etiquette may reflect an underlying ethical code, or it may reflect a person's fashion or status. 

    Rules of etiquette are usually unwritten, but aspects of etiquette have been codified from time to time.

    A Theory of Parenting - Photos in NYC for A Theory of Jewel 3

    in Fashion

    June 29, 2015



    Welcome to A Theory of Parenting on Blogtalkradio.com

    My name is Tammi Joyner

    I am your Host for the Show

    Today we are doing a Photo Shoot

    What is unique about the Shoot is that we are shooting pieces of jewelry in Manhattan NY

    Yes, we are planning another book - A theory of Jewel 3

    So, I decided to take snapshots of our jewel around the city of NYC

    After Marquels graduation I thought it would be great to photo the jewelry wore to graduation

    Those will be featured in our new book - the book will be available at blurb.com 

    www.wikipedia.com says:

    A photo shoot is generally used in the fashion or glamour  industry, whereby a model poses for a photographer at a studio where multiple photos are taken to find the best ones for the required brief. The "model" is not always a person, however; for instance, advertising in print often requires photographic depiction of advertised goods, and food can be the subject of magazine articles (often in very elaborate presentations).
