This would be what's called a bait and switch, folks. Here's the thing: I have to get new photos taken this week. How I dread this, let me count the ways. Don't get me wrong. The photographer who will be taking the photos is wonderful. He did my senior photos back in the day and as I recall, made the whole experience casual and even fun.
What I dread? The results.
I am not a photogenic person! Honestly, if you see a halfway decent photo of me anywhere online, it's probably because it was the one out of 150 that didn't make me want to get a face transplant.
Okay, I'm not quite that drastic or so narcissistic that I sit around studying photos of myself. Promise. But I did wonder if anyone might have any advice for me...? Secret tricks for looking snazzy? If so, I'll take 'em.
At the end of the day, though, I guess I can always count it a blessing that it seriously can't get worse than some author pics from days gone by. Like:
|Henry David Thoreau|
What's up with the hair buddy?
|The Bronte Sisters|
Love their books but not their angry looks. Anne (left) looks especially vicious.
Don't know what I'm going to wear for my photos,
but I'm pretty sure it won't include an oversized doily around my neck.
