the other side of the lens

It’s not my favorite place to be. I admit, I am a nightmare to photograph and my husband will be the first to agree.

so here is the final, final product:

And what I’ve learned from this experience is not profound or anything remotely reflective on my personality or approach to having my photograph taken. It’s this: I have really white teeth. No photoshopping required on those babies!

Anyone need a headshot? We can wrestle until we get it right. That’s how committed I am.
