Sometimes I hear clients say, I need to wait to have my photos taken because:
I’m losing weight.
I don’t have the right clothes.
I’m not photogenic.
I don’t feel great about myself right now. I’m single, and I want to wait to spend my money once I’m engaged. PISH. POSH. I take your excuse and I reject it. (Lovingly, gently, after promising you it will be ok.)
Don’t kid yourself: you’ve made the same excuses. I’m here to say: stop waiting!
Stop waiting to overhaul your online dating profiles. Stop waiting to have new photos taken for your dating apps. Stop waiting to make a change. Stop waiting to have great photos of yourself right. now.
This isn’t only about finding “the one.” It’s not only about beating the competition on dating sites with professional photos.
Here’s a better reason to hire a photographer: it’s about honoring who you are. Remembering who you are. Documenting who you are.
You look great NOW. You are great NOW. Yes, I promise: you are photogenic. Everyone is nervous in front of the camera, including me! You just need to find the right person to stand behind the camera.
Document yourself now. Document this time.
That scar. That hairline. Those thighs. Your smile. Your beauty. Your best, authentic self.
The one your friends and family see every day and LOVE.
