The Principle Project - our answer to A&F's CEO's take on XL women

Because we don't need Abercrombie's approval or name across our chest to look good, and we look good on the inside too.  Ugly sucks!!!

Alice & Galen's engagement pictures

Sunday was the coldest day in San Antonio but I was feeling the heat with Alice and Galen!  They had me meet them downtown at the Pearl District to do some engagement pictures for their save the dates and the cold of the day just brought out the blue of her eyes!  Plus I had them snuggled up together to keep warm....  I love that they let me share their pictures with you!  Hope you enjoy!

Dina's wedding

When I posted on my facebook page that I was thinking of starting a Plus Size Division, Dina volunteered her pictures that we had just shot from her wedding as my first disply album....  Here are some of my favorites from the day.  I just love the ones with her baby girls, you can tell she loves being a mom!  They just really made her glow!  Thanks for letting me share your pictures Dina, and for having me play such a special part in the most important day of your lives!

Kelly's engagement, her words.

I have been a professional hair and make up artist for 20 years. I have always been behind the camera with an occasional behind the scenes snap. I have wanted to cry. Nothing like standing next to a model to loose all esteem. Donna took my engagement photos which were speechless and took photos of just me. WOW. Man I didn't hide from ...the snapshots then. She made me feel as beautiful as all the models I have worked with over the years. Not only did the esteem come at the perfect time, but meeting her as a professional and now as a friend. Amazingly talented professional. Maybe we can do it again one day. Thank you Donna.
and from Donna....  stolen again from her facebook posting to me.  you can see that and all the other posts that she made about our sessions on my facebook plus size photography page. 
Here is the composite that I designed for them to use as a save the date card...

Nicole, doing the talking for me.

If you are checking out this page because you are plus size and need someone who specializes in Plus Size Photography....please take my word for it...stop looking and just call Donna and book your WON'T be sorry. I've got 4 children (2,3,6 & 8) and they are my life. That being said I'm also a plus size woman and don'...t normally feel "pretty" on a regualar basis. I've also got a tendency to be behind the camera as a mom and might even "hide" behind it too. Well, that ALL changed yesterday when I had the honor of sitting for Donna and her Plus Size campaign. I have never (and I really mean that) felt so pretty in my life. My wedding photos were taken when I was much smaller and even then it was very routine and very plain. Pose, shoot, pose know the type. NOT with Donna. She took the time to find the best angle, straighten my arms, position my neck just right, catch the sun behind my hair, even corrected a not-so-flattering wrinkle in my shirt...I could go on and on.  After the first couple of shots, she showed me the pictures on her camera and I had to hold back tears not wanting to ruin my make-up. I never knew (until she got a hold of me) that I could look so beautiful. I never saw myself look so pretty. It seemed that my she was not only taking pictures of me, but also my soul.  I LOVE these pictures and I'm so proud of them. I've never before wanted to show off pictures of myself, but today, I want to show the world. Thank you've refueled my self-esteem and confidence and that my friend is priceless. You are awesome at what you do and you MUST keep doing it!!! You're the Plus Size Picturetaking Angel!!!!!!!

note from Donna... this was copied verbatim from my facebook photography page.  Thank you Nicole for making me feel so good about my job!
