Romance Author Renee Charles dares a Pin Up shoot for her Bio pics.
A lot of girls head over to Model Mayhem. There are photographers on there who will deal with women of all shapes and sizes.
If you don’t want to do that, why not look around at a professional glamour studio? I had some shots done by a professional photographer a while ago, in the midst of my terrible self esteem at the time, and I’ll tell you what - It made me feel good about my body. She did my hair and make up and took a bunch of photos. I went through GlamourShots, but I’d suggest looking around your area for somewhere that does them.
They might be a tad expensive (the prices may have changed) but it’s totally worth it!
If you’re not inclined to do that, then I might suggest Model Mayhem. But be careful, I’ve heard a few stories. If someone agrees to be your photography, it might be a wise idea for you to take a friend along, not only for moral support, but just in case, you know?
Don’t ever feel self centred about that sort of thing! There are photographers everywhere who want models to fill their portfolios!
If anyone has any suggestions, please let us know!!
It’s people like that who ruin stuff for everyone. They set standards that we have to follow, if their friends aren’t attracted to certain women and if certain women don’t fit their standard of beauty, they’re called names. It’s an awful situation and people like that should have no affect of our lives whatsoever, but sadly, a lot of times they do. It’s up to us to be like you, Anon, and not listen to them, but to go our own way and not be shamed for who we find attractive and who we are as people.
My best advice is to go for something that YOU want. If you want blunt bangs, you go get em!
If you’re concerned, when you do go to get your hair done, consult your hairdresser and say to him or her that you’re looking for something that will suit the shape of your face. Or even just drop into you hairdresser and ask them, that way you don’t have to commit while you’re in the chair.
Also try googling some style images, like “hair styles for round/heart-shaped faces” and see what the search turns up :)
I hope I’ve helped :D Good luck xo
