Picture Day

I always hated picture day at school.  From sixth grade to junior year I was an awkward, ugly teenager.  It instilled in me a hatred of having my picture taken that lasts to this day.

I suffer through it–I get my picture taken at parties for the kids, on vacations, etc.  So the kids will be able to point me out to their kids as their mother.  But I don’t like it.

I’m going to do it voluntarily today though–I’m having my article on bipolar disorder published in Mississippi Christian Living and they want photos.  I’m assuming just a head shot to go next to the article, but I could be wrong.  So I will dress up and fix up as much as I can and do that later this morning.  The article comes out in May, so I don’t have long to wait for it.  I’m just hoping it reaches people that need to read it and need some hope, same as my mission with the blog.

Other than that I have a pretty slow day.  Laundry and my ladies coming to help me clean up.  So I’m taking my time waking up and doing everything I need to do to get ready.  We will see how it goes.  Hope everyone has a great day!

  1. Yea, I hate photos. My avatar is a totally not posed one my hubby too – man’s got skills! I put it on everything, because I look so fakey-fake when I do my own head shots! Good luck with your shoot.


  2. When I worked at an elementary school for a couple of years on picture day they would have us adults all come get our pictures done too! It was like reliving the nightmare of picture day all over again lol. Good luck with your shoot, I am sure it will be more fun than old school picture day.


  3. It turned out okay. She took about six pictures against a background of honeysuckle bushes at a local park. I wore my favorite dress and shoes. So hopefully I will look okay in the article. We wills see.
