Family Photo Shoot Ideas

Since our family is growing, I’m thinking about family (of five) photo shoot ideas. Below are some of my favorites:

So many to choose from! I guess I should wait until we’ve met out matchee, but I’m so excited already! Eeeeeek!

Adoption Photo Shoot …. part two?

Adopting-Ready

We took these images a year ago and now neither of us looks the way we look in the photos. I’m thinking another adoption photo shoot (hey, we’ve got to keep ourselves busy somehow! Lol) to update our profile.

To keep myself busy, I’ve found a few poses that I think are adorable! Take a look!

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.
