Family pics, but I'm nervous

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
My family and I have never taken family portraits... But I decided we are this year. We're waiting until its a bit colder outside so they can be wintery pictures.. I'm bigger than I want to be (always have been, regardless of diet and exercise) so I'm uncomfortable with the idea. I don't want to regret not having any pictures later in life, so I'm sucking it up and taking them. Honestly I'm afraid that ill ruin our pictures because I think I'm so unphotogenic... Regardless of how I feel, we're taking these pictures! They will be outdoors.. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can be more comfortable with this? Clothes, poses, ect... Thank you :/

It can, it really depends on how much fat there is and what suit you get. The full body ones are amazing and have minimal "pushing" lol

Will a size smaller push the fat out a different direction? I'm not trying to look like a sausage here lol

 Yup, if you really, really want to look skinnier get a size smaller than the package says you should. They're expensive but if you have a problem area and you'll wear it often it pays for its self in self confidence. I have one that cover my stomach (my problem area that I am working on) I don't wear it often but if we're going out to a nice restaurant or to a friends for a party where I know pictures will be taken then I wear it. It makes me feel better and less self conscience.

No. I've had a ton of friends use her and she truly is amazing in her work. She's a heavier girl, so maybe she'll have poses already that will flatter me

Do you know your photographer? There are angles to make you appear thinner. Try not to be to matchy... Start with one shirt and pick colors that compliment that.
