My photo shoot with Amanda Morrison-Hill was an absolute blast. I urge you to check out her blog and her website. She made me feel completely at ease and we laughed the entire time.
When she took the first picture, it simply came naturally for me to cock my head just so and pose. She commented that it was nice to work with someone who knew immediately what to do.
I told her it was experience. I've had two weddings -- I know the drill.
In case you're wondering (and I realize only the girls will), I did my own makeup, but Carolyn from Laurel Richards Hair styled my hair. It looks awesome. Thanks, Carolyn!
So, out of the lot of pictures Amanda gave me on CD, I chose these:
As you may have already noticed, this is going to be my Voices Blog picture.
There was no question when I saw this that it would be the Urban Contessa picture. It's black and white and I even look like a Contessa.
However, I may use this picture for the Urban Contessa site, under the About tab. I have to think about this for a bit before I finalize that decision. Not to mention I still have to finish updating the site.
Because I have it, I'm going to use this for Facebook. One of the few reasons I maintain my FB account is because I have an Urban Contessa group, which I use to broadcast information about craft shows I'm attending.
Oh, all right ... I'm keeping Facebook because I'm completely addicted to Farmville. Thanks to Cousin Alex and Lady Fairchilde.
And this picture. Well, what can I say about this one. I'm going to peek my head out of the closet here.
I have a writing blog that I have created under a pen name. Many of you may or may not realize that you're already following it. Once you see this picture posted, you'll put two and two together (mind you, if you're anything like me, it won't add up to four). I like to think that my writing has improved and I feel pretty confident now, so I'm ready to step out. I will keep the pen name, though. I like it, and would likely use it professionally (God willing!).
Thanks, again, Amanda for making me look absolutely wonderful.
