Over at two peas we are having a self portrait challenge. I don’t normally like being on the other side of the camera but since my current profile picture is more than a year old it is about time for an update.
Over the last three days I took 65 pictures of myself, and that doesn’t even count the ones that I deleted immediately. During this process I realized two things. 1) taking a decent picture of yourself is really hard 2) I badly need a hair cut.
Out of 65 photos I have come up with two photos that I like. And since you, friends, family, and blog readers, are the ones who have to look at it for the next year I am going to let you have the final say. So with out further delay here are the two finalist.
and this next one was a close call because Simon is so cute but my cheesy smile is exactly why I hate having pictures of myself taken.
In this photo I am wearing Simon in my homemade Mei Tai. If you want to make one of your own the pattern can be found here.
and since I have a sense of humor and I can laugh at myself I will share a few of the outtakes.
I know that often my clients wonder about the images from their session that I don’t show them – they think I am holding out on them. Well here is a prime example of the photos that I don’t show.
Myles calls the image on the far right my “crack mama” photo. I don’t have a remote so in order to take a self portrait I have to set the timer and then RUN! sometimes I don’t make it, sometimes I am just slightly disheveled.
