Yesterday I came across this blog post from photographer Teresa Porter of My Friend Teresa Photography titled, “So you’re feeling too fat to be photographed…” Her remarks are so beautifully written! This is a great read for all of us who think we need to lose those few extra pounds before getting family pictures done! We are who we are, why should we be afraid to have pictures of us? I loved her perspective on us thinking we don’t look good versus the importance of having lasting memories.
Her closing statement, “So you’re feeling too fat to be photographed? . . . Ok. But you’re the only one who notices. The rest of us are too caught up in loving you.”
Your families and friends love you, and I guarantee they want to have something to remember you by!
