My husband may be a super amazing photographer, but yesterday he faced his toughest client, ME.
This is me. Just hanging about on the couch. This is what I said to Twiggy when taking this shot: “Where do I look? Have I got a double chin? Should I put my legs like this or like this? Is my hair ok? Do I have lipstick on my teeth? Did you remember to pay the electricity bill? Does my bum look big?”.
Here’s me just sitting in my driveway. Here’s what I said to Twiggy when taking this shot: “Sit on the driveway? I never sit on the driveway. I don’t know if I can sit on the driveway in these jeans? Ooo, ooo, ok I’m sitting down. You do know you’ll have to help me get up again. Is this ok? is my hair ok? Am I looking at the right spot? Does it look like the daisy bush is an afro? Do I look fat? Did I turn the oven off? Does my bum look fat?”.
Here’s me sitting on the couch with the kids. Here’s what I said to Twiggy when taking this shot: “Don’t make me look fat? Can you photoshop my extra chin out? Can you get rid of the pimple on my chin? I don’t look fat do I? Oh man, I wish I wasn’t so fat? Does my lipstick look ok? Miss 5 stop picking your nose? Miss 3 stop pushing your sister? Miss 2 stop licking your sister’s face? Who did a pop off? I don’t look fat do I? Twig does my bum look fat?”.
Then I shut up for awhile and let him do what he does best. Not that he was listening to a word I was saying anyway!
You can find Twigs’s photos here: http://www.archiefive.com He travels everywhere taking photos for businesses, media, magazines and weddings. Luckily his clients are much less whingy than me.
Do you like getting your photo taken?
On another note, I’m doing a bit of a recruitment drive – if you get a moment do you think you could please like my Bianca Wordley’s bigwords’s Facebook Page – http://www.facebook.com/bigwordsblog and while you’re at it have you joined my site (you can find it on the left hand side). And lastly, if you pop your email address in the box in the top left hand corner you can get bigwords delivered straight into your inbox! Fancy that.
I esp love the first three pics, you look fantastic and fresh and happy. Fantastic given those 3 gorgeous energy filled girls you run around with
Done and done, I even liked on FB as Mrs Sabbatical and the real me, that’s how much I like Bigwords ; )
Great shots btw, your bum does look big, I can’t see any extra chins, your hair looks fab but who sits on their driveway?! Haha mmmwwaaah x
Am off to a wiggle my bum dance
Beautiful photos Your husband is very talented. He didn’t capture anything that you were worried about.
Such beautiful photos! I’m always the one behind the camera, and have very few photos of us together. I really need to give someone else the camera every now and again!
I wish someone would take my photo. The only ones I have of me are all self-portraits. I’ve gotten quite good but I wish someone else would think of taking photos at functions so I can also be in the pictures with my kids and family. All our functions I’m the photographer so we have albums (yes old times printed photos) and folders upon folders of photos I take – but i’m in maybe 20 of them! I wish for a photographer fairy everyday!
