Stepping Out...

I hate cameras.

Well, I like cameras; I like that we can easily record the children and family happenings. I love being behind the camera.

I hate having my picture taken.

Did I say hate? I don't think that is a strong enough statment.

I avoid the camera. I'm not photogenic at all and it takes many (MANY!) tries to get one good photo.

So, when my friend Sheri called me out publicly in her comment on my makeover post....well....I knew I had to suck it up and take a photo.


I enlisted my daughter for the job of photographer (she's good at that kind of thing) and set out to take the best possible photo. It went something like this....

Me: I need to take a photo of my hair for Sheri.
Sam: Okay. Let's go outside.
Me: Let's just get this over with. (UGH!)
Sam: Okay....Why do you look so scared??
Me: Becaussseeeee... I am scared.
Sam: Stop doing that thing with your eyes.
Me: Here, take this one. Then Sheri will know how I really

I emailed this photo to Sheri and she promptly reported back that she would be making it her desktop photo. (GASP!) I guess I deserved that....

So, I decided to just go ahead and step out here and post a few of the photos from our little session.


Okay....here goes.....

TOO close (and cheesy).....

Too bright and squinty..... and WHERE did that double chin come from?? Yikes...

Okay! One good shot! Woo hoo!

Ohhhh boy...


It's a bird, it's a plane....


Well, this one is not too bad....

There you go. That's me. That's the REAL me.

I'm such a dork!

I wonder how other people see me.....
