This is me on a good day. A really good day (aaaand a little bit of photoshop). Meaning I miraculously got enough sleep (though there is only so much I can do about the circles under my eyes - but its me) and woke up before the boys and got a shower in before chaos ensued. My hair is washed and styled. My favorite long-sleeve tee is clean and my makeup cooperated. I needed new head shots for my photography business and after setting up the lighting I wanted to and the
camera settings, I let my 10 year old have at it. I actually got a few I like. It's a day of miracles, people!
We want to represent our best selves in photos, especially when everyone and their dog, literally, might see it thanks to social media!
A good photographer can make a big difference, but in the end, it really comes down to being okay with yourself. I'll be the first to admit, sometimes that's a hard pill to swallow! No one else's view of you is more skewed than your own. No one is more critical of yourself than you. (Nope, not even your mother-in-law).
I know this sounds totally lame, but this was actually a hard things for me, and I've been avoiding it for years. But, I did it. So can you. We can do hard things and call them hard things . Whether that's getting your picture taken or applying for that job, or go after that dream... whatever! You are amazing. You can do it.
