Self Portraits

 LBL_5152 I don’t know when the last time it was that I actually had someone take pictures of just me.  Maybe it was when I was a High School Senior. Way too long ago. Since then I have a few other pictures taken of me.  The kind where it’s taken from arms length away in hopes that you can get a good angle and get most of you in the shot. I have plenty that my kids have taken of me randomly, which are always so flattering. A few taken when we are together as a family, but me by myself… none.  LBL_5147 So I took advantage that Laurel was coming to convention and paid her to get some good photos of me.  Ones I can use for my design work and that I would actually want to sit on my husbands desk at work. I think she did a great job.  How many of you moms out there have a good picture of yourself.  Probably none of you. Go and take one, but not using the one arm extended method.LBL_5139         LBL_5142

LBL_5148I think she did a great job. She’s an awesome photographer and you can check out her site here.

You are right, I doubt many moms have pictures done of just themselves!! They turned out really good and you look really good.

I've decided no pictures can be taken of me until I am done having kids (and of course after the liposuction!) You look great and she did a good job!!!

Oh, and I thought it was so wise what you said, that sometimes when we do something that's "just for ourselves", it's for others too! This will be a wonderful picture for your husband to have on his desk!

Oh Shalae, you are so beautiful! It was easy to get some great shots of you. :) Seriously, your smile is contagious. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to capture you. I'm sure Beau will love having you on his desk! :)

Pictures look fabulous Shalae! I'm glad I'm not the only that holds the camera out to try and get a snapshot of my face. Or I've also tried to have my kids take a picture of me and yeah that one turns out about as well. Good for you to get some real one taken!
