- Wedding: May 2013
So my first post here was an emotional one. We did pictures, and I hated how they came out. I learned a lot about my body, about how things photograph, and how I look in pictures. My isues were
- my hair looked odd in pictures. It was a pixie cut, and it didn’t photograph well on me
- my arms looked massive: Holy Cow!
- I looked down a lot, causing a double chin thing
- I have a round face, so when I give a big smile my face looks round
- My glasses are transitions, so they don’t photograph well either.
Here’s my plan of action this time, things other bees suggested:
I’m getting my hair cut in a few days, I’ve been growing it out ever sence and I’m getting an a line. It’s what I always felt looked best on me.
I’ve practiced smiling in other, casual pictures while looking up.
I press my tounge on the top of my mouth when it’s picture time, helping to hide any skin that decided to make itself into a faux double chin
I’ve cut back on salt, going to DOUBLE my efforts this week, as the shoot is next week.
I’m making a large “save the date” sign that I will hide behind in one photo, just in case, like this couple:
I’ve been working out. I have a year to go, but now that things are offical and we’re setting depoists down I’m kicking my booty in gear!!
Last but not least. I bought a kimono style shirt that hides my arms. Thing is, my mom says I look crazy. If I do, That’s cool! tell me. But I need to hear it from the bee.
Here’s a 4 month old photo and recent photo of me and the FI for arm refrence:
Here’s a photo of the, as my mom says “crazy ugly” shirt. I thought I liked it, but now I’m affraid I like it becasue it hides my arm fat. To make it even better, I’ve been obsessing and now I don’t know if it really does hide my arms or if I just want it to hide my arms. Should I just wear the yellow dress like in the picture above? I have no idea what pants I’m going to wear, and I’m not wearing any makeup AND I have the worst breakout of the year right now, but you get the idea.
I know I’m overthinking this, but I just really want to love these pictures
