I was listening to a photographer teach today, and she talked about how women are always waiting to lose weight, change their hair, etc. before having a picture done. She said, (and I thought this was SPOT on), "your family just wants a picture of you. The people who love you don't see you as fat, thin, wrinkled, bad hair- they just see you as someone they love." I thought how true is that!! I have a few friends who are always fussing over their weight. Sometimes I know I hurt their feeling because I don't pay much attention to their weight issues. I very truthfully tell them, "I am so sorry, I don't see your weight gain or loss, I just see you." Don't wait until you are perfect to get a picture done - just get them done. Someday, your family will look at your pictures and think you were precious, just the way you are! And they will treasure having a picture of you. If you wait until everything is just perfect, they may never have a picture. When you look at a photograph of your great grandmother, grandfather, mother, do you find yourself critiquing their style, hair, weight like we do to ourselves? Of course not! You are thinking about memories and that is what a a photograph will invoke for our families! Someday is now. Get that photo session booked. Don't wait!
