Every day I get a few hundred emails. And while I delete most of them, every now and again Ill click a link to see what its all about.
Today I got a pitch for a photobook company. I have ordered photo books in the past and I adore having them. The last time I ordered one for my father in law, his mom liked it so much (great grandma to the kids) that she wanted it and I have yet to be able to go back and replace. In a time where everything is online and digital, I dream of a world where I will yearly consolidate my favorite photos before I am 65 and Facebook and digital cards are obsolete.
Anyhoo, I hop over to the site and see they specialize in making your photos “magazine quality” before printing in your book.

Then it comes to this one:
I am trying to decide why you would get professional photos done, then added to a book for memories, and then pay someone to make you look THINNER?
I sorta left the site not sure what to feel.
I wear a padded bra and I certainly try to stand up straighter if someones taking a shot, even to the side to cut out that mom belly, but I can honestly say I have never shaved off any pounds in photo editing.
So let me ask you… do you make yourself more slender before you publish a photo?
