Watch Out Gisele

So I guess I am a natural model or at least I know how to pose for a camera. She said “give me a big smile” so I did. She said to give her serious and I did my best at serious. She asked for seductive and I showed her seductive. Then again, I hoped this translates on picture and isn’t like Rosie O’Donnell being seductive.

I can’t tell you how much I love our photographer Rachel, she’s so cool I would hang out with her as friends if she weren’t so busy working and didn’t live in Boston. I might just really like her because she commented on what a great writer she thought I was because she read my blog 😀 She also kept saying how cute I was 😀

We took most of our pictures in our backyard but started in the woods behind our yard. We sat in the hammock, sat on the ground, hugged trees, hugged and kissed a gnome, wrapped me in a winter scarf, danced around and I may have even vogued or something.

The session was supposed to be 90 minutes but ended up being 3 hours. She also told me she took more than 900 pictures but that’s what Leoster the gnome will do to you, you’ll lose all track of time.

I’m so excited to see how these turned out and obviously nervous too. I mean, 9 times out of 10 I hate how I look in a picture. I did get 1 picture back already I think because she could tell how anxious I was and was hoping it could tide me over until she had time to the pictures up. If only she knew how bad I was at waiting, but then again I’m also really good at getting distracted and the new season of CSI starts this week.

I guess she lucked out 😉

    Having a photographer that makes you relax and you both have a great time is priceless.

    I can not wait to see the other photos either.

    Blue – Thanks!

    TMP – It really is important, especially when you aren’t naturally comfortable in front of the camera.

    Avi – Thanks.
