When I Come up for Air



Ack! I've been up to my ears editing photos this week but had to take a second to share a very convicting post by my friend, Donna. If you are more often seen behind the camera than in front of it, you must read this.

When I come up for air, I shall blog on:
  • Why one should not pose their Senior High model on a rock occupied by a poisonous snake
  • The time MrsMama noticed a green tint to the sky and reached for her mouse to correct the color, only to discover that, in real life, she cannot change the weather
  • A bittersweet photoshoot in which a neighbor says goodbye to her dear canine companion

I have been feeling convicted for a few months now and then I saw that post. I am still not in front of the camera.

Trying to get over my shyness.

MrsMama said...

Jen, I'll start posting some pics of me on my blog if you'll do the same. How about we work on that this Summer?

I don't think anyone can accuse me of not being in front of the camera enough! I do want to twist Andy's arm and get more shots of him, though. Who knows, he could get hit by a bus tomorrow. Life is fragile.

As to your future blogging points, do keep in mind that:

1) If you kill your clients, they will not become repeat clients. Nor can they recommend you to their friends.

2) You, my dear, have been spending too much time in front of a computer. Mind you, I have to remind myself all the time that I can't pause or rewind the radio, or live people...

Jo, I do envy your natural ease in front of the camera. I just feel so awkward!

And - good points. Both of them! Thanks for the smile.

Okay, when someone keeps me accountable I have a way of following through. It's a deal. Pictures of myself with kids as a goal for summer. Maybe I will even be so daring and actually post a profile pic of myself.

I was totally laughing at the first and second......then I read the third and almost started crying. I have a dog with cancer and just realized that I should probably be getting some family/doggy shots done.....

MrsMama said...

Stephanie, I'm so sorry about your dog. That's so hard! (hug)

We have an aging dog too and I haven't really gotten any deliberate shots either. I really need to.

Oh, I've been taking a lot of shots of Ditto (my old dog) this year. It may be the last year. And she's such a dear (and such a ham).

And you know, I've been doing self portraits on and off for 10 years. You do get more comfortable in front of the camera after a while. For the first few years I rarely shot my face, which is a nice way to ease into the whole thing, I think.
