WARNING!! LOTS OF PICTURES!!
This Saturday we had a Birthday dinner for my Daddy, the teller of tall tales.
My lovely niece, who is older than me by a whole year and two months and eighteen days (but who is counting) got to come in from North Carolina. I just love it when Amanda comes in. We used to spend lots of time together when we were younger.
From L to R: Robin, Me, Amanda
So Saturday, I asked Deta to take a picture of me and Amanda together....
Turned out pretty good.
Unlike this one.....
I was afraid that with us both having offwhite on, and being against the light colored curtains, that it would wash us out and we might just be floating heads in the picture. So I asked Deta to take our picture with a darker background. That's when it happened, chaos ensued. Come on I'll show you why its so fun to be in my family......
We got our professional background out (also known as a throw) and a reflector and BAM instant studio :) .....
We had fun with the reflector.....
What?? Doesn't everybody carry a reflector around to take pictures??
I am so glad I am on this Alternative Eating Plan look at those cheeks and those jowls on my face. :[
Here we are trying to relax our cheeks from smiling so much
Here is the audience that was watching
Here is Deta taking the pictures
Here is my Great Niece Courtney acting like a goofball
(Beat y'all didn't know I was a Great Aunt, I really am a Great Aunt)
Courtney being bored
(actually I think she was saying will they ever stop taking pictures!!)
Here is a picture of Jess and Courtney that I jumped into. :)
And then my nephew Wes saying please hurry up my arms are tired.
When we were finished he did this....
Brrrr its cold.....
After all those pictures, Deta and I went to her studio and I was a guinea pig for some ideas she wanted to try out. Here are those shots.....
Man its amazing what a talented sister, a leaf blower and photoshop can do.
I wish my skin looked like that all the time!
(You would never guess that in those photos, I am sitting on a chair holding a leaf blower up toward my head.)
