I had this photo (and others) professional taken on May 2, 2012 for an article I submitted to a local magazine. It was my intention to have my son take a set of photos for me. But as we were preparing for the photo session, I realized that my son did not have a camera so he could not take pictures of me holding my camera (how could I forget that)!
I had my hair styled for the photo session so I did not want to waste a lovely hairstyle. So I called a local professional photographer and he was able to fit me into his schedule that same day.
By the time I arrived at the photo studio, I was a bit sweaty and did not bother to apply any eyeshadow on my eyelids and lip gloss on my lips. He did a great job, I am pleased. The one above, I did not really like the pose because I see alot of websites and blogs with the model posing like this. I wanted something different. But as it turned out, I am happy with the results. This next one is a pose that I specifically requested.
