Okay, I have to admit that I sort of felt like a senior in high school during this photo shoot. I said that I FELT like, not looked like. I worked with Heidi Stone on some shots a few years ago for kids clothing (some of you may remember when I sold pillowcase dresses). She was so great to work with and we have stayed in touch since.
I got a message a couple weeks ago asking if I would be interested in doing a little trade. I had to admit that I wanted her to take picture of me, not my children. Oh shame on me!
You see every time I attempt to take pics of myself for my blog or website, I tend to look a little stunned. I have no idea why I get this smile. Is it my fear of the camera remote? The awkwardness of taking your own picture? So, I decided to take the opportunity with someone that really knows what they are doing to do some shots.
Remember my trip to Indy that went from an overnight stay for a baby shower to a weekend getaway (solo, no kids). So, when I left the house on Friday I packed all the wrong clothes. Shirts with stripes, my Keen sandles (that I love but not so stylish), and jeans that were just okay.
A last minute speed shopping trip through Target landed me with jeggings (oh yah, my first pair of jeggings!), tall boots, scarves, a red jacket and some white shirts. I headed back to my moms house, where I was staying for the weekend, only to discover that I forgot to put her house key back on my key ring. I did the unthinkable. I changed my clothes in the back of my car. We have tinted windows… Ha!
Heidi was so much fun to work with. She made me feel comfortable. We joked about looking like it was a senior picture shoot. And walked around downtown Indianapolis all afternoon. Let’s face it, we are both moms (she has FIVE! ), so any time we can leisurely walk down the street we take full advantage of it! She was nice enough to buy her husband a cupcake, but I think she was secretly hoping she would get to eat most if it.
Connect with Heidi…
she’s a mom, a photographer, a pretty crafty gal & she home schools her kiddos!
Today I’m also linking up with Lindsey over at Pleated Poppy for What I Wore Wednesday
