Photo Shoot

I've been wanting to update my head shot for a while. My sister has a good eye behind the camera and also is a wonderful iPhoneographer, so we headed to a park by her house and attempted to find a shady spot for a photo shoot.
I had fun playing model and even being silly in a few shots. As a teen I thought I could be the next Cheryl Tiegs, Twiggy, Lauren Hutton or Christie Brinkley.  It gave us both a good laugh.
These are some of the outtakes of the almost 200 photos it took to finally get one decent photo.


Geri took this one with her iPhone and did some editing with it. If you like iphoneography you should check out her blog.

This is the photo I decided made me look the youngest skinniest the most like myself.


Have you updated your headshot? It's always nice to put a face to the blogs we follow and love to read.

Great photos. After we'd met and I found your blog I read some back posts and had to re-read several times. I thought someone can't do maths there is no way that couple are old enough to have children of those ages! You have a great looking family too.

That's a cracking photo - but I love the middle one in your mosaic, too. My head shot's a year old but I've not changed much! A few more wrinkles...

Geri said...

This was such a fun shoot! I enjoyed our sister adventure. Love the one you chose and also agree with Lynz the center one in the mosaic is smashing! Very joyful.

Catherine said...

Fabulous pictures. The one you've chosen is perfect, but, like Lynz, if you'd needed a spare-the one in the middle a of your mosiac looks great too

It's a necessary evil, isn't it? Love your new photo and the others are smile worthy!

Camilla said...

Just to say I came here from Leanne and have enjoyed spending some time looking around your lovely blog!

Sara said...

I like the 2nd one in,in the second row! How fun!

Beautiful Diane

Leanne said...

Your sister is good but she had a beautiful subject to photograph. I love the picture you picked.

What a great job your sister did. Maybe I'll see if my daughter will help me before she heads off to campus. Thanks for the suggestion.

Dianne Neale said...

They are all great photos, of course, but my fave is the one in the middle. You could be a Charlie's Angel!!

You’re looking wonderful! Such great shots!
I’ve never put a head shot on my blog. I intended to, but first wanted to loose a lot of weight... well, I did loose the weight, then my family didn’t want me to put my face out there on the internet and now I’ve gained a lot of weight again... aha!
When I started blogging, nobody used head shots on blogs, it has become more common now.

I love the one you settled on, and it looks like you had fun. I love my head shot as it is though, albeit I'm slightly less furry IRL ;o)

Heather said...

How fun! I'm the worst at having pictures of myself in general, so I always just crop something from a vacation - I'm wearing sunglass in most of my head shots!

Poppyprint said...

You do look young and skinny, because that is yourself! Great new pic!

Love the one you chose - but I think we should have voted - I would have gone for the first on the middle row!! Beautiful xxx

Cindy said...

Beautiful picture of you Di. Looks like you and your sister had fun!

Cindy said...

How fun! I like the one you choose, but the middle row far right is a fav too. What a great laugh that must have been.

JuneBug said...

Great job with the photo, and having fun with it too :)... I have been wanting to update my headshot too, but it is such a weird thing, to work hard to get a good picture of oneself. I'm training my 7 year old to be the good iphoneagrapher in this house ;)

Canadian Abroad said...

You are young, and skinny and absolutely stunning - and don't you ever forget it. I am so jealous, or would be if I didn't like you so much.

Chase said...

Lovely photo. I needed to get a new one up... Since I have a pretty short haircut now...

You're such a pretty lady . . . inside and out! Love the new photo Di!

Tessa Marie said...

You are cracking me up! Looks like you had a fun photo shoot and you chose a great picture. Of course, I think you look great in all of them!!
