More Photos from the Shoot

So my photographer Brooke was kind of enough to allow me to share with all of you some lower resolution images from the photo shoot.  Some are from my house and I think they are really neat.  There are a few more of me that while may not have made my top 10 I still like a lot.

My Photo Shoot

Well, the photo’s are in.  Yes, I was a model for a day.  My sisters decided to give me a photo shoot for my birthday/housewarming present and it was a lot of fun.  The photographer is named Brooke Schultz and she did a great job.  She treated me like a movie star and made you laugh.  Her personality is very bubbly and fun and I’d recommend her for any of your photo shoots.  Although it was a gift the price I believe is quite reasonable and she took a lot of photos during the session.


I will probably make a few prints so let me know which one’s you like the most.  I have to say that it really did make you feel beautiful to have someone asking you to pose and spending time taking your picture.  It’s funny because I grew up in a family of photographers but they do more landscape photos than portraits and I have certainly never had a session like this.  It was a lot of fun and something I’d like to do again.  It’s good for the self esteem.

(On another note, my talk yesterday went great! I got tons of positive feedback.  People even asked for copies to be emailed to them.  Hurray!)
