CONCEALED BEAUTY #03/2023
Are you someone who always finds a reason not to schedule a photoshoot?
Do you tell yourself that you're not ready, that you need to lose weight, or that you need a tan before you can face the camera? If so, you're not alone. Many people put off having their picture taken for a variety of reasons. However, the truth is that there is never a "perfect" time for a photoshoot, and these excuses are simply that - excuses.
Reason #1: "I need to lose weight before I can have my picture taken." One of the most common reasons people put off having their picture taken is because they feel they need to lose weight before they can be photographed. They worry that they will look overweight, unattractive, or uncomfortable in their own skin. However, the reality is that everyone has insecurities and imperfections. Nobody is perfect, and nobody looks perfect all the time. The truth is that a good photographer will know how to pose you in a way that flatters your body and highlights your best features. They will use lighting and angles to create a beautiful image that you will be proud to share with others. So, don't let your weight hold you back from having a photoshoot. Embrace your body as it is and let the photographer work their magic.
Reason #2: "I need to go shopping for new clothes." Another common excuse people use to put off having their picture taken is that they need to go shopping for new clothes. They worry that their current wardrobe is outdated, unflattering, or not up to the task of being photographed. However, the truth is that you don't need a new wardrobe to have a great photoshoot. In fact, you can create a timeless and classic look with just a few basic items, such as a simple black dress or a pair of jeans and a white t-shirt. The key is to choose clothes that you feel comfortable in and that reflect your personal style. You don't need to wear something that is trendy or fashionable if it doesn't suit you.
Reason #3: "I need a tan before I can be photographed." Another excuse people use to avoid having their picture taken is that they need a tan before they can be photographed. They worry that they will look too pale or washed out in their photos, and that a tan will make them look more attractive and confident. However, the truth is that a tan is not necessary for a great photoshoot. In fact, many photographers prefer to work with natural skin tones, as they provide a more authentic and genuine look. If you do want to add a little color to your skin, you can do so with a self-tanner or a light dusting of bronzer. However, don't feel like you need to change your natural skin tone in order to look good in photos.
In conclusion, there is never a "perfect" time for a photoshoot. There will always be reasons why you feel like you're not ready, but these reasons are simply excuses. A good photographer will know how to work with you to create a beautiful image that you will be proud to share with others. So, don't let your insecurities hold you back from having a photoshoot. Embrace your natural beauty and let the photographer capture it for all to see.
