    Definitely take the pic tomorrow. I'm sure you will look fine, but if you are really worried, just ask the photographer to place you in some flattering poses. Your kids will cherish this pics later on. Do it!

    GIRL< of COURSE you should have your picture taken...why the freak not? You know one day you are going to look back and look at that pic and say 'Man I was HOT!"

    I hardly have any pictures of me during a certain time period because I was heavy and refused to be in pictures....I just took pics of my kids or husband and kids..now I regret it, there arent any pics of me in the photo albums. with my children......how lame...sort of like I didn't even exist!

    So be in the pic, and yes a good bra and spanx is a good idea.....anything to make you feel more comfortable..then we all wanna see!

    Wow, you're only going to wear your Spanx and your good bra. Isn't that a little racy? Haha! No, you really should get in the pictures because you don't want to regret not being a part of it in the future. Here's a good trick if you're worried about angles and how your body looks- just have your kids pose around/infront of you, that way they're only getting the chest-up of you. The only thing you need to worry about showing in the pictures is how happy you are to have a great family to take pics with.

    The more I think about it, the more I am considering it.

    I think the reason I am squeamish is because last year we had a guy take family photos and they were just not good. I looked like a whale with all the angles he had. From looking at his photos online I think he may be better at shooting people that gets their better sides (or parts)

    Default Should I have my pictures taken tomorrow

    My kids are having their pictures taken tomorrow. A photographer from out of town whose work I have admired is taking pics of several families in our area and he is really laid back and easy to work with. He takes a lot of family photos. At first, I only wanted my children's pictures done but now, I am thinking - why not?

    I am not one to get my picture taken and I am not even sure what I would wear. The only thing I know I would wear is my Spanx and my good bra.
