I was in desperate need of a haircut, desperate I tell ya! My last scheduled hair appointment I had to reschedule due to a floor in our master bathroom that not only flooded the bathroom but the bedroom and walk-in closet. Fast forward a couple of months, and for Mother’s Day my sweet hubby had planned on taking me in to get my hair done again, and wouldn’t you know it, our refrigerator went out which we ended up having to get repaired (thank goodness we didn’t have to purchase a new one). But still, a good chunk of change had to go to repairs. It’s funny with women (and maybe with men too, I don’t know) but when finances get tight usually the first thing to go is hair, nails, makeup, and clothes. We do without and that’s ok, but I tell you what, after having my hair done and realizing how great I felt (and still feel) afterwards, it’s worth every penny. I knew as soon as I got home from the hair dresser, I needed to get a new self portrait done and just in time for our Self Portrait X12 project!
I have a sneaky suspicion that is what happens with photography as well. When things get tight, photography becomes a luxury. But I believe, that it is something worth saving for and in years to come, photos will become priceless to you! I hope that when you look at your portraits from me that it makes you feel great and puts a smile on your face.
Next stop on this project train is Jessica Engert of Laughinghouse Photography in Orlando, Florida. Her beach photos remind me of our vacation this past July. <—- which reminds me, I need to get those images edited!
