I’ve been wanting to get some updated photos of myself for the blog for a while. My old profile photo was a selfie taken on instagram. It was neither recent nor particularly good, but I hadn’t managed to get a decent photo so the selfie stayed.
My sister Laura is into photography in a big way. More so even than me. Recently she has turned her hobby into a job, and now she runs a small photography business in the mountains.
Over the weekend Laura and her family came for a visit. She and I spent a lot of time tweaking blogs (you can have a look at her new blog here), and of course, taking and editing photos. On Saturday morning we wandered down to the creek behind the farm house and took some photos of each other. I even straightened my hair! She now has some photos for her business (taken by me), and I have some more recent photos of me for my blog (taken by Laura).
It felt funny to be on the other side of the camera. Normally I am the one telling others how to stand. No doubt Laura felt much the same. Fortunately we both had our cameras to play with as props.
I really do wish she and her family would move closer to the farm (hint hint). We always have so much fun together.
