Danielle’s full figured Glamour session | Rochester, NY Photographer | Plus size model
This is my big sister, Danielle. She is the beautiful mother of a 16 year old boy. She sings, plays flute or guitar for our worship band at church. And sometimes she plays guitar for her husbands band when she’s needed. She works extraordinarily hard to provide for her family. This is my third session with my sister, and this one is by far the best. I’m sure you’re thinking ” what changed?” It sounds so simple, yet its so hard to accomplish. This time, Danielle was comfortable in her own skin and that showed through the beautiful portraits I was able to capture for her! Its taken Danielle many years to be confident in front of the camera, and it has definitely shown in past sessions with me. While I have always been able to see her beauty, if you don’t, then your pictures aren’t going to be as beautiful. Amazing how a little thing like confidence can show easily in a photograph.
Danielle really wants to encourage other women with her full figured glamour session, so she wrote this note to you.
“I am from a family of overly skinny people and it stinks to be standing next to them in a family picture not only am I plus size but I am also the shortest! I have always hated to have my picture taken, being plus size, most pictures just make you feel shorter, fatter and just plain frumpy. Over the last year I was diagnosed with health issues that cause my weight issues. I was made this way by my Father I am not lazy, I am not stupid. I have begun to accept that I am beautiful in my Fathers eyes and thus am becoming more accepting of myself. I have begun to make an effort to not look frumpy, when you are plus size covering up your curves just makes you look bigger. My husband has been very supportive and wants me to show off (within the limits of modesty of course) and has told me for years that I am beautiful and now I am starting to believe him. Melissa (who also happens to be my sister) did a life changing photo shoot with me. I took the effort to do a careful job with my hair and makeup, and chose some outfits I felt great in. Melissa also was very helpful in posing me in a way that I was comfortable in and didn’t make me feel fat. For the first time ever I LOVE my pics! Thank you Melissa for an enjoyable photo shoot and amazing photos to show off. I even had a couple special ones done for my husband, which would have been WAY too much out of my comfort zone even a year ago!”
“Be confident in the skin you are in, because that is the only body you will ever have, the only place that will ever be solely yours. Even if you will never be as skinny as those super models, or the beauty who makes everyone stare, you can be beautiful in your own way. And you have to accept that, and own it.”
