As soon as I sent my book to editing, I realized something was missing… an updated author photo. I began scrambling to find a photographer to take updated and professional photos. One problem, I hate pictures… Let’s be real, I hate the way I look. I am in this space where I’m learning to accept and love myself unconditionally. I’m heavy. I’ve always been heavy. Even when I work out, I get tighter not smaller. (Except this one time when I starved myself) So the idea of seeing myself in photos, not fitting the slim standard of beauty is always discouraging.
I decided just because I’m heavy I don’t have to take unflattering shots. I was grateful to find this tutorial on how to pose. I also plan to look up how to layer clothing. Thought I’d share.
