Just Me, Take 2

So, you wouldn't think that taking a self-portrait would be such a big, stinking deal, but I took 300 pictures, from different angles, and with different lighting and there wasn't one, single photo that I really liked.

(I SO blame you for this Amy Huhtala...I was perfectly happy living my life BEHIND the camera, but you and your stupid challenges...and I'm going to get you for it too!)

Anyway, I can't help but think that this would be a whole lot easier if I looked like Heidi Klum, but photo after photo, no Heidi, just me.

So in honor of Troy's "let's do things outside our comfort zone," I will post one that I thought I could live with...and I will keep taking pictures and see what happens.

Awh....
Maybe try one in the shade next time. :)
My fav. angle is upwards -- makes your face look skinnier.
Drew actually JUST took a new photo of me, I really need to update my blog at some point.

Congrats for going outside your comfort zone, D.

When folks kindly offer to take my pic at an event or location, I typically say, "Thanks, but I already know what I look like."

I know it's impossible for me to take a good picture of myself...have you considered letting Troy or one of the older kids take one of you?

I totally agree with Amy H!

This picture is captivating! Maybe you don't think so, but I wish you could see yourself threw my eyes.
