A few months ago I discovered that I have an extreme fear of getting my picture taken. Not so much of the gather around in a group and say “cheese” kind of picture. But the me standing by myself and smiling kind of picture petrifies me. I’m serious, I’m not a fan.
So, in an effort to conquer my fears, I called up my friend Alie. She’s been doing photography for several years. I’ve seen her work (you can check it out here www.sallyphotography.blogspot.com), so I knew she would get some great shots. Plus, because she knows me, I knew she could help me conquer my ridiculous fear of the camera. (As a side note, I tried to find out the official name for a fear of getting your picture taken. It turns out, there isn’t an official name. Although one Internet posting said it’s simply called “Being a Woman.” Good to know.)
Anyway, Alie did a great job. She made the whole process painless and easy and got some great shots. I put some of my favorites below (Seriously, there’s a lot of them, so brace yourself. What can I say? The camera loves me).
Just let me know if you need one of these in an 8″x10″ glossy format. I’d be happy to oblige. Thanks for your great work, Alie. I love them! Now I just need more frames so I can display these all over my house. Pictures of me in every room! That’s not weird, is it?
It seems like it’s been kind of a long week (despite the fact that Monday was Memorial Day so it was actually a short week). At any rate, I was hoping for a fortune that was deep and insightful. I know, I know. I should really have a better grasp on my expectations by now because this is what my fortune said:
