you can take the girl out of the studio…

Hey everybody!  Usually when it’s been this long since my last post, I start with “insert lame excuse here”.  However, this time, I’m thrilled to be blogging since my site has been down for about 5 days.  I won’t go into all the nasty details about “insert names of companies here”, or how it has affected me “insert long list of expletives here”.

I have images of some cool folks to post now that I’m up and running.  In the meantime, here’s a ridiculous trip down memory lane.  These pics might explain my aversion to studio portraits.  With that said, if I find myself full of enough truth serum (aka, tequila), I might just have to admit that these are some of my favorite childhood photos.

I do kinda love this first one.  That is still the face I make in most photos.  Also, the hands I have now are either brilliant prosthetics, or that is some serious shag carpet.

Oh dear.  Here starts years of unfortunate hair.  During this time of my life, I would gently stroke my head and say “pretty hair”.  I’m sure this was a joke started by my parents.  They seem nice, but they are pure evil.  I’m not sure what the deal is with the flower.  I guess they thought something in the photo should be pretty.

I would wear a fancy bracelet while farming.  I have to point something out here.  All the props and outfits you’re seeing were not supplied by the photography studio.  These were all from the creative mind of my mom.  I guess this explains why I have boxes of stuff I use for photo shoots.  That rooster might have to make an appearance in my next boudoir shoot.

I’m not sure what to say about this next one, other than I must have made my mom really mad to deserve this.

Good student = sweater vest + smarty-pants pose + apple + pretending to read when I’d rather be on my Big Wheel.

I have to give credit where it’s due.  These images where taken by the Don Frederick Studio in Wisconsin.  I wasn’t sure if they’d still be around, but they are!  Right on!  If you’re out that way and need some portraits, check them out.  Make sure you bring some eggs and a bale of hay.  My mom and I would be proud.
