nice to meet ya

OK, I hope this post doesn't seem weird to you. It feels a little strange for me to be in front of the camera instead of hiding behind it. That's where I much prefer to be. :-) There are a number of reasons I decided to post these pictures:

It's my birthday this week, and the last pictures I had taken of myself were when I was in college. Time for some updates, right?

Another reason...there are probably 2 or 3 pictures of me on my entire blog.

I like to know what my blog friends look like, don't you? I feel like I "know" them better when I can see a picture of them.

My husband has recently become my photography buddy, and he wanted a chance to photograph someone that didn't try to run away. (ie: an adult)

I know it would make much more sense to post some pictures of myself with my kids, but that's just an added level of difficulty.

So without further ado (adieu?), let's hear it for Doron! This is only his second time on a photography expedition, and I think he did amazing.

Doron says to tell you he realizes I'm on the wrong side of the frame - LOL!

You might have already seen this one yesterday. I love the tones in this picture.

I had to include this one even though there is an unsightly sunflare covering most of my face - ugh! I thought Doron's composition was great, and just wanted to share. I really wish this one had turned out.

I know I have a funny expression here, but I had thrown these yellow leaves in the air no less than 40 times, so I'm posting one just because.
(Be glad I didn't post the one of me jumping in the air like a 16 year old. I almost broke a hip).

Another headless shot; I can't mess that up! :-)

So there ya go. A little glimpse of me. But more importantly, let's hear it for my husband. He's got some serious raw talent and I can't wait to see what he can do in the future.

Great pictures! You and your hubby make a great team. I took my son out to Pioneers Park yesterday and got a few good shots for his birthday. The weather has been gorgeous.

Sarah Halstead said...

Gosh these are gorgeous and so are you. Great to "meet" you. I love them.

Ashley Sisk said...

WOW - 1. you are beautiful. 2. Doron is amazing (you already know you're amazing) and 3. part of the rules, is to break them...that one photo where he says you were in the wrong side of the frame...I think it works that way! Great job Doron and it's about time you post pictures of yourself friend.

Ashley said...

Awesome! I love the "wrong side of frame" shot too. There is not a thing wrong with it. Your outfits are totally cute too.

Now, you and Doron neeed to put that remote to good use and get some shots of yourselves together.

Jhen.Stark said...

A.MA.ZING!!! You are beautiful and so are these pictures! I love that we got a little more of a glimpse into getting to know you by seeing your face {and you are one gorgeous mommy}. So not only is Doron lucky for being an amazing photographer himself, he got himself one stunning wife!

Anna said...

These are SO COOL--way to go, Doron! Love the fence post one especially. WOW! :) ..helps to have a perfectly GORGEOUS model! :) Love em all.

Kathryn said...

Great pics! I absolutely LOVE the one with you and the coffee cup! That could be sold as an ad for Starbucks!! Then I got to the black and white version of that photo wiht your eye showing a bit and I was like: It's COLLIN!!! With a long wig and a coffee cup! :) He looks just like you!

So fun that you and Doron can spend time like this together!

elizabeth said...

So so much fun to see what people look like that we chat with every day - you are beautiful!!! I am getting some pic's taken to put on the new website in a few weeks [Ones that I want to use for my Button} and would you believe I am nervous - I don't like being on the "other" side - I much rather be the one taking the photos -
that and the fact that I usually hate pic's of myself - but Doron did great and you look great!!!

Jill said...

Now I know where your beautiful kiddos came from - you're gorgeous! Your hubby did an awesome job.

Natalie said...

You look great and your hubs did a great job! My man took a picture of me on a hike yesterday . . . I will not be posting it. LOL Especially now that I see how cute you look strolling through the leaves!

Big Fat Mama said...

How sweet of your husband! I think these are beautiful! I don't have one picture of me on my blog and I've been thinking about putting one up. I think people will be surprised, because I don't fit my name (Big Fat Mama) at all! :)
Thanks for sharing these!

I'm super proud of him too! Time to kick the hubs into shape to compete? Does this mean HE has a camera too??!?!?!?!

cooperl788 said...

Happy Happy Birthday!! Your hubby did a GREAT job photographing you - though he has tons of raw talent, he had a gorgeous subject to practice with. I love the pic of you sitting under the tree; it's such a beautiful composition. It makes me wonder what you were thinking about. And I love the one of you standing next to the tree, because it's one where you can see your face best. It's wonderful!

Mama Hen said...

Happy birthday my friend! You are beautiful! Your husband is doing a great job with the camera! The coffee shot is great! makes me want a cup. Ha! Have a great night and make sure to celebrate all week!

Brooke G. said...

YAY! I love these :D You are darling! I have a feeling we are going to be seeing a lot more of you IN FRONT of the camera - yee.
And the one of you with the coffee - that is an amazing shot.

Wendy said...

Happy Birthday week! And what a wonderful present - that your husband has such a natural talent, and that you can share this awesome hobby.

Jenny Esterbrook Photography said...

Holy crap, girl! You are one hot mama! ha ha You shouldn't be afraid to be in front of the camera that's for sure-I had to totally laugh at your comment on my blog the other day, that was so sweet of you to keep trying and then still let me know, you rock :) I'm bummed about the sweater, isn't that always the way and I'm thinkin' you should totally take me shopping, I' loving all your outfits, :) Your husband did fab and I too struggle with family shots, it's hard to have everyone on board with your "posing" but I've been getting better. Your work is amazing and I always die over your processing, you'll have to share if there's any certain actions that are your favorite, you definately have a way with gorgeous tones. Wow, you think you ramble, sheesh! Thanks again, you are always so sweet :)

Angela said...

Fantastic!! You are such a beautiful lady, and your husband did a great job capturing you!

Gorgeous, Gorgeous, Gorgeous!! And, I agree with the previous post (Jenny) - you have a way with gorgeous tones.

britni said...

No, not weird at all! I love having my photo taken, even though nobody does it but myself, and then it's glaringly obvious that I did that and then it looks like I don't have any friends. Ahem. Anyways, where did you get that sweater? I must know!!!

britni said...

Heh. I just realized that you are wearing several sweaters in this series. The blue striped one was so fab that it overshadows every other sweater in my mind. So, the blue striped one. Where can I get my hands on one?

Courtney from The Story of Us said...

OKAY, could you possibly be anymore B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L?!?!? I loved looking at every single shot & I agree w/ the previous comments...your husband rocks & I think it's awesome that you guys share a hobby! Happy Birthday week my fellow scorpio, as my birthday was last week. :D

Andrea said...

YAY! Pictures of you! :)
