Hi my beautiful full figured bees!
everyone is so positive here and has helped me in the past! When I booked our photographer, I had the option if engagement pictures or a portrait. Family on both sides insisted on a portrait and I agreed but I really am very nervous about the whole thing.
I have never really had pictures taken of just me…other then school/sports pictures. Those were easy, smile and you’re done! This is an hour and a half of just ME…ah!
Anyother bees feel super self conscious and awkward before/during theirs? I have gained weight and I know the whole time Im going to be worrying about arm fat…I know it. Do any of you bees have any advice? Any ideas on flattering poses? Were you too hard on yourself and did it show in your pictures?
Any advice, words of wisdom or experiences would be great 🙂

Girl, from one curvy gal to another, you are going to look FABULOUS, don’t you fret. I had bridal portraits done, and the only day I felt more beautiful was my wedding day. I tried to focus on that feeling as opposed to what I was worried about. I was worried about my arm fat, too, and there wasn’t a single photo out of 700+ that I felt my arms looked bad.
A good photographer will make you feel so relaxed, and they’ll know how to pose you. Just relax (easier said than done!) and let your personality shine. I can look at my photos and see the change in my photos once I allowed myself to relax – the difference is huge! Like I said, your photographer should help you loosen up.
Here’s how my photos turned out! I hope you will share yours when they’re ready!

You are too gorgeous to be concerned with how you will look in pictures. You will look stunning and they are going to look so nice that you will be proud of yourself and wonder why you were so concerned before.

EDIT: Your FI/husband loves you just as you are…That should give a booast of confidence in and of itself.

@Tiffner: Like I told you earlier, you look beautiful! And you certainly don’t look “full-figured” to me. I’m glad the photo shoot turned out well today and you look radiant and fantastic!
