First off, I got absolutely no sleep lsince I was so nerved up about having this done. I mean, this is my author photo. I make FUN of bad author photos, what if mine is one of them??
Then I thought, enjoy the moment!
I was getting my hair and make up done at the photo studio so I had to drive through town *gasp* without make up. Not something I would ever do any other day.
It was so much fun. Crystal did my hair and make up while Stephanie took photos of me getting ready. I really enjoyed chatting with them, they are both very sweet and know what they're doing.
Next we chose the outfit and jewelry and put it all together. I brought plenty of choices with me, just in case.
Then came the posing. I am not fond of my smile in photos, but she got a few of me laughing and probably a ton of me smirking. It is amazing to me how a photographer can tell exactly how you should sit or hold your head and you're thinking to yourself, "This is awkward. Don't forget to suck it all in. Breathe." And it comes out great!
Once I get my proofs, I will be able to choose my author picture for the book and here, too.
I have added Stephanie's website link to the links on the upper right. Hopefully by the end of next week, you will be able to see my photo shoot and maybe even my final pick!
Props to the ladies that made me feel like a celebrity today:
