I've been hinting about uploading new pictures to the site for ages. Well, I finally did and I could not be happier. I recently had the honor of working with makeup artist and photographer Steven D. Hill. What a talent!
For those of you who don't know, Steven is an awesome Dallas, Texas photographer. When we started the project, I had two requests; 1) make me pretty, and 2) make me skinny. To be more exact, I said "I want Mariah Carey airbrushing" . This was a tall order. I'm not photogenic at ALL. In fact, most of my pictures are taken with a group of friends at some bar. We are drunk 99.7% of the time.
Fun fact: The picture on my homepage (the one I typically use when blogging) is NOT a posed picture. I did not purposely take the picture with the intent of looking away. The story behind that picture (the short one); I was trying to take a picture of my friends. I was on my third or fourth margarita and guess what ? … I dropped the camera. Camera flashed just before slamming to the ground. Good times.
Back to my point, I do not have Tyra Banks 'smeyes'. Steven had his work cut out for him. The first few picks were horrible because I was so nervous. SOMEHOW, Steven managed to get me to loosen up and get a decent shot of me. I love the new pictures. The shoot was fun.
Big thanks to Steven D. Hill!
