Sorry I left you hanging with that last post.
I don't know about you, but most girls, if given the
opportunity, will take up an offer to act like a model for a photo shoot.
I did just that.
I scooped up about 5 outfits and bought some fake eyelashes.
I took the time to actually do my hair!
What?! I know! And makeup...f I had it my way,
I would never wear makeup.
But-I'm nearing 40 and so I can't go without,
nearly as much as I used to.
Happy to say, my husband likes me best with
a clean face, and that's 0% pressure.
As far as my kids? When I wear makeup, they notice...
"why do you have that right there" and
poke me in the eye in the same breath.
And after that, it was pretty simple.
A lot of..."oh yeah, that's cute, do that,
pull your shoulder back, suck in your tummy".
And let me tell you---it was a blast, and
very exhausting at the same time.
I love them! Thanks Annie.
I did hers too! Not cuz I am a photographer, cuz
the photo and the appropriate settings were set up
and she has a phat camera that
does the good stuff.
I gotta say.
That modeling stuff is hard work.
Maybe it wouldn't be as hard if I didn't have to
suck in my tummy and angle the perfect way.
Or if someone did my hair, makeup and clothing choices.
I have mad respect for models.
Do your craft, it's not easy and after two hours...I was beat.
So I went and ate a burger and fries.
Betcha' real models don't do that.
You too could do this with a friend!
We took a Sunday afternoon away from the
fam and started snapping.
Your girlfriends will be honest about
what works for YOU. They tell you when you look like a dork
or you're too pouchey somewhere.
I'll be happy I have these...especially
right before I turn 50 years old...cuz you never
appreciate how you look when you look like what you
look like....tell me you understand that last sentence?!?!
And honestly...I know I am a blessed woman,
I'm discovering it more with every year and that's
what I thought of to get the real smiles in these
