“Oh I would love to have a session with you but……….. I need to lose 20 pounds, I need to gather up the courage, I need to get more money together, I hate the way I look in photographs, I don’t need any images of myself.”
We have heard excuse after excuse that people offer up to keep from scheduling a shoot with us. And I am certain there are many others to come, but I want to say that none of them are excuse enough.
I say we as women need to EXIST IN PHOTOS! We take pictures of our kids, of our parents, of our spouses and pets, yet we miss out on the idea that we need to be in the images too.
Have you ever thought of what you are leaving behind? Have you ever thought of how it will feel when you are 10 years older, 20 years older or even 50 years older and you look back to find so very few images of the younger versions of you?
Have you thought about what it will be like when you are older and have so little to show your kids and grand kids about how you used to be? So little to show your progression in age, of how you became the you that you will be.
It is time for us to EXIST IN PHOTOS! Your family, your kids, your grand kids and even you deserve to have images with you in them. You all deserve to have absolutely beautiful and gorgeous images of YOU!
There is no need to loose that weight you THINK that you need to loose. You are a thing of beauty as you are. You don’t need to gather courage, you are strong and confident and we will help you. You don’t need more money, we offer payment plans for that. You may hate the way you look, but I promise we can make you love the way you look in your images. You may not thing you need images of yourself, but you do and so does your family.
Your family and you deserve to have images of you that you love. And later when you are older you will have that priceless portrait of YOU in all your beauty. You can have it to show kids and grand kids and even more importantly than that, your family will have those images to cherish for a lifetime once you are gone. This is the most priceless aspect of beautiful images.
It is the emotion behind them. The love that can be shown and held there for many lifetimes to come. Images of those we love are priceless, why else would you take all the phone images you do? Why else would it be so traumatic to lose those pictures when a computer or phone fails? These reasons are also why it is so important to have an actual physical portrait. Something that can’t be lost to a virus infected computer. A beautiful portrait on the wall to show off for a lifetime.
There are so many reasons to get beautiful images of you and to #EXISTINPHOTOGRAPHS, so what exactly are you waiting for? What is your excuse?
Well, that is not a good enough reason. Just do it and EXIST IN PHOTOS!
