taking new pictures

I had new headshot taken!

By my friend Heather.

Heashots from Heather

They’re really great, she did a fantistic job!

But it was hard.

Where pictures used to be easy and simple, it’s more complicated now.

  • EYES -  the glare on glasses was irritating enough, but the double-vision-not-quite-focusing-look-over-here-AND-over-there thing was hard too.
  • WHEELCHAIR – the chair itself is just part of the scenery, but cropping pictures and getting angles so I could hide the horns didn’t look like horns were growing out of my head were a challenge.
  • EXPRESSION – trying to make it look smile-y, but not grin-y fighting the stroke and natural Asian squint was a job in itself

Besides the wind blowing my hair and my inability to quit talking when Heather was trying to take my picture WE DID GET PICTURES!

We even got  few of the kids. (Nathaniel was in bed with a case of the crud, I didn’t sell him on Ebay.  Unless you want to make an offer)

Rachael

Peyton

They made it all worthwhile.

    I love all the pictures, Anissa. But the two w/ Peyton are absolutely stunning. The love in her eyes in the first one is exquisite. Anyone can see how much she loves you and is so thrilled you are her mom. Now go get tomorrow (like you always do)…
