My big fat photography resolution

January 25, 2012

This week Tara is asking for our photography resolutions for the year ahead.

My resolution is tied in to my New Year New Body resolution.

I set up New Year New Body because I wanted to lose weight and I knew if I did it with a support group it would work better. I was right. There are 44 of us and we’re all doing incredibly well.

My personal goal is to get to a position where I feel really comfortable having my photograph taken, where I don’t have to stand behind someone with a bigger tushy than mine (in this case Daisy Duck). A bit like that Gok Wan show, only more covered up. Because right now, if I look through all my photos, there are heaps of No 1 Son, his dad, our relatives and friends. But hardly any of me. I’m the Invisible Mum.

So my photography resolution is: to have more photos of myself. To stop being invisible.

    […] When I was about six I saved up my 10p a week pocket money for eight weeks so I could buy a Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck annual which I read and reread countless times. I loved Mickey, Donald, Minnie and Daisy. […]

    we should also all add ‘learn how to pose for the most slimming effect’. good luck on your resolution.

    Same resolution here – be in more photos! I think you look lovely in that photo, definitely out-shinning Daisy! Good luck with your New Year, New Body!

    That’s a lovely resolution and you should never be worried to be at the forefront, not now not ever you are a gorgeous woman!

    An excellent resolution, one which I should follow too. I hate having pics taken of me, I always blame my husband for taking bad photos but I think it could be the subject that’s the problem rather than the photographer ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I presume that’s you on the right? You look great to me, so does your friend!!!

    Good luck with the resolution – not being in pictures is something that I’m guilty of too.

    I hate my photo being taken. When I get a “You’ve been tagged in a photo on Facebook” email my heart sinks and I immediately check to see how bad it is. I have been known to email people and ask them to take pics down because I hate the way I look. Some are fine but others do more than add 10lb!
    I’d like to be in more family photos and not have the tagging fear. A great resolution Liz.
