the tables have turned

I have reaffirmed the fact that I belong BEHIND a camera and never, ever in front of it. I wish that all those episodes of America's Next Top Model had paid off, and that I could have some semblance of natural flair when posing for photos. However, as soon as I see a camera aimed my way, my face gets a severe case of ADD, and I turn into a bad, one-woman vaudeville act.

Yesterday, I had to drag Matt out to shoot some quick headshots of me. I needed to submit my photo and some info in the hopes of being involved with a new photography TV show. I'll keep you posted (fingers crossed!).

Matt could probably tell you a few stories of when he has defied death or at least serious bodily harm. None of these stories involve bravery equal to that required for him to take my picture. When he'd show me images on the LCD, I kept saying " is THAT really what I look like??!!". I mean, I know I don't exactly have bee-stung lips, but I wasn't aware that they are nonexistent. This isn't just typical self-deprecation. I am actually wondering how I am able to effectively drink through a straw. I may also change my Christmas wish list to nothing but gift certificates for spray tans.

Anyway, I'd like to give a HUGE shout-out to all the wonderful people I've had the privilege to photograph. I have a new appreciation for how completely cool you are.


Here are a few shots from my blooper reel (most of them are in this category)...









Here's the keeper...

You're beyond adorable, Stacey. More photogenic than you could ever admit. Dare I say, hot??

But I'll continue to honor the restraining order.

I was going to forward that casting call to you! But clearly I didn't. But clearly some other smart folks did!!! You are PERFECT for the job and the pics are great. You are attractive AND intelligent looking & your personality is irrepressible (no dumb bimbo hosts for this show) and they're totally going to want to ride the Tina Fey thing - LOL.

LOVE YOU!! BREAK A LEG!!!
