I'm getting older (my birthday's coming up! woot!), but I'll never forget grade school, when I first encountered copycatting. To this day, I see this kind of thing going on in the world of wedding photography.
If you're having trouble with this kind of behavior, I have a book for you.
It's the first day of school, and Ruby is new. When her classmate Angela wears a red bow in her hair, Ruby comes back from lunch wearing a red bow, too. When Angela wears a flowered dress, suddenly Ruby's wearing one, too. Fortunately, Ruby's teacher knows a better way to help Ruby fit in--by showing how much fun it is to be herself!
It really is more fun to be yourself. Stay tuned - tomorrow we'll cover lunchroom manners.
