Photo of the Day: Smurfette Self-Portrait

During our ladies weekend, we had fun with an anti-stress Dead Sea minerals face mask. I figured none of the other women would want their blue faces posted on my blog, so here’s a self-portrait in the mirror.

Self-portrait ... did you notice the reflection in the camera lens?

Project 52 Week 42: Self-Portrait, 3 years & counting

Last week was so busy, from a Fountain City Brass Band concert, to Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, to my wedding anniversary. I haven’t had time to sort through many photos yet, so I’m posting a photo from our quick anniversary self-portrait photo session. We try to take photos every year on our anniversary, so we’ll be able to go back and see how we’ve changed from year-to-year. I don’t think we’ve changed too much yet. 🙂 These will serve as our Christmas photos, too.

By the way, don’t forget that Wednesday is the last day to book your holiday portraits!

Day 313: From Nail Biting to Nail Painting

Now that our big move is over, I can finally de-stress. I’m really looking forward to this Saturday’s Pancreatic Cancer Action Network Hope Gala. I figured it was time to get rid of my blue toenail polish and replace it with a classier red. (If you want to attend, tickets are still available! The event is at Union Station and includes dinner, drinks, silent & live auction, raffle, and music – all for just $75.)

Taking a photo from this angle while painting your toenails is much more difficult that you might think.

Day 286: Self-Portrait, Gala-Bound

Next month my husband and I will have the privilege of attending our first gala, thanks to a generous birthday gift. We’ll be attending the PANCAN Night of Hope at Union Station. I bought this dress for the occasion about a week ago, and I’ve been meaning to take a photo of it to send to my mom. I figured I might as well turn it into my photo of the day. Now I just need shoes and jewelry … suggestions welcome!

Day 273: Grunauer Self-Portrait

Yesterday my parents dropped off a large plant at my office (another blog post on that later) and took me out to eat at Grunauer, a German restaurant in Kansas City. The space was so cool – old hardwood floors, antique furniture, and huge distressed-looking mirrors. (Not sure if I got the terminology right on that one.) I shot a few photos of the space, but I think this self-portrait is the most unique.

Day 206: Let’s ‘Park’

Our apartment complex had our parking lot re-paved yesterday, so I convinced Jerod to play around with some night portraits in the empty parking lot. There was a lot of giggling and a lot of eye-rolling (I’m sure you can guess who was doing what), but I think I ended up with some good photos. I couldn’t decide which type of portrait I liked better, so I’m including two.
