This month’s post is intimately personal because it’s me. I was compelled to participate in this challenge. Not only did I turn 38 this month but I haven’t been in front of a camera on purpose in a VERY long time! I spent lots of time BEHIND a camera but in front? Let the heart palpitations begin. Where should I go? What should I wear? How? When? As the panic began to rise I put on my photographer hat and dispensed the usual advice.. to self! Stay calm, ask yourself a few questions, and follow the rules. By the way, the rules for selecting your clothing can be found here: What To Wear blog entry. After reminding myself of the rules, things started to calm down. I wanted my session to say something about me but the temptation is to try and have it say EVERYTHING. This line of thought inevitably leads to an overwhelming urge to get back BEHIND the camera! I finally realized that I couldn’t possibly say it all here and I shouldn’t try. So these photographs are my first attempt at a self portrait.
I’m a child of the living God, (John 1:12). I’m a wife. I’m a mother. I’m also a teacher, cook, house cleaner, chauffeur, reader of many books, lover of Pandora radio, drinker of lots of coffee with hazelnut creamer, photographer and many many other things!
