Adoption Photo Shoot … with People of Color and Chubby Folks

This is us.

This is us.

Sunday we did an adoption photo shoot and I learned a few things:

  • Always tell the photographer that you are a person of color before the shoot. The suggestions that she was making don’t look good with Black and Mexican/Black folks.
  • Be clear with the photographer about you want them to watch out for .. .bulging tummy, bra straps, extra chins, etc. I really had to tell her that I’m too fat to be bending and scrunching my stomach up. Really? REALLY? You don’t see the fat hanging over the pants? LOL
  • Make sure that you are specific about what, if any, poses you want. We didn’t get good shots with some of the props because I was letting her lead. I should have been more clear about what I wanted.

Anyhoo … here are a few of the best (I think) ones. She hasn’t doctored them up yet, but I couldn’t wait to share … so please excuse the watermarks.

The note says, "Looking forward to loving you"

I wanted to do one pair at a time, but this is so cute.

    • I saw other people doing it and thought, “Why not?” Like they say … this specific time will only be here this one time.
