I Heart Self-Portraits!


Hi everyone! This is my very first week participating in the I Heart Faces photo challenge. This week the theme is "Self-Portraiture" (thank Gawd my braces are finally off!).

There are two categories for this week’s theme:
Kids Category – the photo must be of you and a child (or children)
Adults Category – show us your face…and your face ONLY!
For both categories, you must take the photo and you must be holding the camera when you take it (you can’t use a tripod or anything else to hold the camera for you.)

I decided to try and get a shot for both!

Here is my entry for the Adults Category:




Oh, hey! Look at that. You can't even see my teeth in this shot, so it wouldn't have mattered if my braces were still on anyway. The photo was taken in the vanity mirror of our truck. I sat in the parking lot snapping away photos of myself while Davey was in buying groceries. I think all the other shoppers must have thought I was crazy. But, it was very overcast and rainy outside my window...so it made for kind of nice lighting. :-)

I hope you like it!
For more fun photos just head on over to the I Heart Faces website.
Thanks!
