I just went though a unexpected family members death....photos this person hated....so there were not many and most were candid and family groups photos. No professional photo of this member. Yes, I felt bad that I had not pushed harder to get those photos. I prepared the memorial photos and it hurt not to have that unforgettable photo of that family members essence.
We are all beautiful, we all are worth that professional photo, everyone has their special essence that no one else has!
Please tell me in kind and real words why you hate having your photo taken....everyone can have a great photo. Look at my website www.openlensbypamela.com to see photos of shy people, people who think they are not attractive and so on.......
Your family and friends are gathering it is the perfect time to have a professional photography come and take photos. Then you will have the memories that capture who you are.
Happiest of holidays to you all!
