    Smile being photographed vs getting photographed

    "Anyone who knows him knows he loves spend his days napping here and there or being photographed and stunning"

    I'm talking about a cat (again).. but I'm not sure if I should use "being photographed" or "getting photographed".
    Thanks for any suggestions.

    Re: being photographed vs getting photographed

    What do you mean by 'and stunning'?
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    I was trying to say that he spend his time doing nothing and just being stunning (and getting/being photographed)
