HOW TO TAKE PHOTOS FOR REWARDS

NOTE: You must take progress photos this way to be eligible for rewards

Progress Photos Help you See your Results Better!  

Your eyes get used to seeing your body every day.  Progress photos help you see how your body’s changed.

Everyone who skips taking before and after photos regrets it… so please, do yourself a favor and snap your photos.  It’s easy and takes less than a minute.

HOW TO TAKE YOUR PHOTOS


♥ Where to take your photos:  In the same place! 
 

Snap your photos in the same place with the same background.  This shows me it’s really you in your home! 
Avoid taking your pictures with a lot of clutter in the background.
A plain solid colored background like a blank wall or door works great. 

Tip: Take your picture in a room with the most light as possible.  Natural light coming in from a large window is best, but any room works as long as it’s well lit.  You want the light to be front filled and not overhead or harsh.

♥  What to wear:  Show some Skin!  This helps you see how your body’s changed.  

Wear your favorite bikini or sports bra and shorts. 
Avoid wearing undergarments, pants, and long sleeves. 
Try to wear the same outfit in both photos.  This helps you see changes in your body better!

♥  How to take your photo:  

Set your phone up somewhere on a self-timer.
You can use the front-facing camera so you see what you’re taking pictures of. 
There are a lot of self-timer apps!
OR, if you have an accountability partner that you feel comfortable with, ask them to snap some pics!

Tip:  Avoid selfies in mirrors!

♥  What to take a photo of:  

Take a full-length photo of your body from the front
Take a full-length photo of your body from the side
(optional) Take a photo from the back
Take both photos showing your body from head-to-toe, or head-to-knee.
Stand relaxed with your arms down by your side. 
Show your face, so I can tell it’s you in both photos.  
Stand in the exact same pose when you take both photos, with your feet the same distance apart in your before and after photos. This will help you see changes in your body better. 

Tip: Use grout lines in tile or put a book in between your feet so they’re the same distance apart.

Note:  I cropped this photo to use it as an example, please don’t crop yours

♥  BONUS: (optional) Take a photo of your weight on the scale.  Step on your scale and snap a picture of the weight you see.  (Like this)

Note:  I put this photo in a grid, please don’t edit yours

♥  Don’t Edit Your Photos in any way:  No edited photos are accepted.  This includes filters, adding text, changing the lighting, cropping or putting your photos in a collage.  The only modifications done to photos should be changing the name – a must!

♥  Rename your photos!  Name your photos Your Name + Before or After + Front/Side/Scale – Please don’t submit photos without naming them first… otherwise I won’t know they’re yours!

WHEN TO TAKE YOUR PHOTOS

The ideal time of day to take your picture is in the morning before you start and the morning after the last day. 
Tip: Try to take your photos before you eat anything and after you use the bathroom.

Reset Cleanse
  • The Reset Cleanse is 7 days long:   
  • Take your before photo on Day 1 before you start (eat/drink) anything.
  • Take your after photo the morning of Day 8, before you eat/drink anything.
  • For example, if you start on a Monday, then Sunday would be your 7th day. 
    You would take your photos Monday morning before you start. Your last full Reset day Sunday.  Take your After photo Monday morning, on Day 8, before you eat/drink anything.

Note:  If you continue on with another program your Reset “after photo” from Day 8 will become your ‘Before’ photo for your next program.
