I ♥ Faces - Self Portrait

Over at I Faces this week the "assignment" is: Self Portrait. In this self portrait 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.) This wasn't an easy assignment for me because I really don't like to have my picture taken. But I did it anyway.


Be sure to check out the other entries at the official blog for I Faces!

UPDATE: I've decided to enter a photograph into the Kids category too. I was helping Sam with his homework and I saw that I had the camera on the table. I reached over to it and started taking pictures. Of course by now it's hot so my hair is pulled back into a ponytail the make-up is gone and I look tired but I was having fun. By the end Sam had had enough of the camera so I leaned over to kiss him and took one more. You can see by the look in his eyes that this is not what he wanted to be doing. It's a dorky picture but it's a good one as it captured the moment so well.

That one of Sam is PERFECT!!!

It so captures our not wanting our kids to grow up and our kids wanting us to get over the fact that they are growing up!

Love it.

Great self-portrait, and I love that Sam is rolling his eyes with a "Moooommmmmm!" expression in the portrait of the two of you.

Hey Kim- I loved the expression on your son's face! And you are beautiful- I love your smile! It really is hard to submit a picture of yourself-but your smile is so infectious and brave!
Thanks for the kind words on my picture- I really am not a photographer- I just picked up a digital camera last year- am intimidated by photoshop and just want to take pictures to illustrate my blog.
It is amazing how helpful words of encouragement are- thanks again!

You look great even though you had to hold the camera, you done great and you look great as well! I love the other pic, Sam looks so cute!!

I like the self portraits that you can't tell are self portraits, such as yours. This could just as easily been taken by a friend as you were happily watching your children play. And your son's expression is priceless!

What a beautiful pic! And your son--well, I've raised a boy (stepson) and I know that look well! *snigger*

Thanks for stopping by to see my self-portrait!
