I am in need of a new avatar picture. I have been trying to come up with a pic that suits ME. However, I have come to the conclusion that there are NO photos of me. (Man, I hope I don't die soon, my younger children will have no visual memory of me!)
There is a reasonable explanation for my lack of photos --->I am the one behind the camera and my dearest is typically the one behind the video camera. This works well for us - but it causes an obvious problem - my dearest is never on any video (except his voice) and I never have a good photo of myself. Plus, when you have wee ones the pictures inevitably are of them, not each other anymore. The first picture I used was from our family portrait this summer. The one I am using now I quickly snapped in a mirror located in our dining room, (with my husbands cheap work camera of all things!) it is anything but flattering.
I have scoured my pics looking for a good shot. The very few pictures that I did find of myself are from right away in the morning (not my best look), or are when I was in the hospital (where I have frequent flier miles), or late at night after the day has beat up on me. (See below)
Maybe I should place a blog ad: JustJules in search of a good portrait photographer. This photo must be suitable for an avatar picture on blogger. Photographer must work for free, or a home cooked "supper". Travel to Northern Minnesota is not included but mandatory. Feel free to be inspired by these pics.... Finally, please apply only if you can work photographic magic.
Yeah, I'm screwed!
The few photos I do have of myself are better not seen....
