Self Portrait, Not So Scary

2011 February 9

Project Take More Pictures| Take 3

This isn’t technically a self portrait because my daughter took the photo.. but whatever.

In my quest to be IN more photos this is day 3 post ‘laser’ treatment after my chin got the acne treatment. Other than the artsy fartsy editing, I did not alter my face at all, I am wearing a tinted moisturizer though because my chin is screaming red still!

And right after a giant Flour Fiasco! She was holding the flour bin upside down and it all came crashing out. All over the counter, the floor and HERSELF!

We laughed and she had already cleaned up most of the counter, but when we grabbed the vacuum my little boy shouts: “I Want to Vacuum My Sister!!”

Reminds me of a story my older sister told once about her daughter making a mess in the kitchen with flour. The kid was upset, so my sister says, “you think THIS is a big mess?” And proceeded to throw flour all over the kitchen… “Now THIS is a BIG mess!!”

    I think you have natural beauty. Something I was not born with……it takes spackle and a putty knife to get my face to work! You, not so much!

      Coming from YOU I really think that’s an awesome complement!
      You lie about the Spackle!

      and beware, I’m taking my camera EVERYwhere, I want pictures of MOMs this year. 🙂

    Carissa- you look great and fancy smancy! I am with you- I have very few pics from any family vacations, etc b/c I am the family photographers and this seems to be the trend in many but not all houses (some of the guys enjoy being the photographer).
    Here’s to moms rockin out in some pics in 2011!

    Carissa, You know how to strike a pose girl! You look fantastic. No acne in sight and your hair looks gorgeous! I love your bid to be in more pictures. We do all the commemorating and seem invisible.

    This is a really good reminder. I’m usually pretty camera shy myself, always self conscience of “this or that.” But, when I look back on pictures on the few pictures I do have of myself from 5 years ago, I think “Wow, I looked really good – what was I worried about?”

    Even though I feel like a huge sloth these days, I’m sure that in 5 years, I’ll be saying the same thing about myself today!

    Girl you look great! I am never in photos too – but starting to ‘make’ my husband take photos of me and the boys….just so I can prove I was there!
