Elegant Pose Set

My past portrait sets have been non traditional and fairly casual, which is exactly how I wanted them to be.  However, I have had a request for more formal and even vintage portrait sets from freja at Grey Witches!  I’m working on all those, and this is my first one.

**Please read the instructions as there are some things you need to know for this set to work.

1.  The flower by Severinka, only works with everyday outfits.

2.  The male in the back can sit on the arm of a large sofa. I have him
sitting on a bar stool.

3.  It is best to snap the poses together and then slide your choice of
couch under the sims.  Use the alt key on your keyboard to do so
after entering the moveobjects on cheat.

4.  Couches are all different heights for the seat. You may need to use
the one more slot from  Mod The Sims to raise up the sims.

5.  Child pose 4 is sitting on a floor pillow, not a stool. I wanted the sim a
specific height
 to get the arms to match, mom and child, you will
need this pillow.

I know the mom’s bottom leg looks like it appears from no-where.  It’s just because of the dress, not the couch.

The height for child pose 4 on the right, has been altered down just a bit.

    They are perfect – just what I had in mind! Classy, detailed and something you just can’t date! Thank you so much for creating these! 🙂

      Phew! I’m so glad! You are very welcome. As you see the arm isn’t up on the couch and I tell you I did try. But with all the differences in couches, it just looked terrible! I hoped the arm down would be okay with you.

      Thank you. It took me a bit to figure out the seating with all the changes I made. I wanted things to be simple for everyone!

    So elegant! Could definitely be fit for an old photograph, too, that is found by the Sims living in our times.

    They look really good 🙂 I’ve been thinking ahead about doing a future interview bonus with some of my sims. So I’ve been looking for more good sitting poses and the 1 and 2 may do very nicely for a start 🙂 will the lady work ok without the Kid?

    As always you are very talented. thank you for your hard work bmitjessesue 🙂

      Thank you! The mother has her arm around the child and her hand on the hip of the child. Her other hand is tipped down to hold the other child’s hand. I could alter this pose to be without the children and send it to you via email. posesbybee@gmail.com is how you get in touch with me.

    Woot!!! Pure awesomeness! These will come in very handy for me later on for a very special family portrait. And thank you for showing the seating setup, too. That’ll be so helpful.
