The Wrong Side of the Lens

I don’t know how many of my readers share my aversion to having their photo taken, but I really prefer to be behind the lens and not in front of it.

Recently it was brought to my attention that I needed a current photo of me for professional reasons. So today my dear foster-brother DJ and I had a photography session using my lovely mountain back yard for our studio.

Comedy reigned supreme, as seen above…..but bless DJ he hung in there and got some shots that would work.

It has given me a greater appreciation for those that model regularly in the various magazines and such.Β  I’m definitely happier stitching and working out the math for designs.


  1. The pictures are very nice! Even NICER are the scarves you are wearing! They are beautiful! I think the pic and scarf I like best is the darker blue one where you are in a black top. That’s the one I would pick. πŸ™‚
    Where can I get the pattern(s)?

    • Thanks for the kind words Jana. I think the scarf you are referring to is my Little Wing Shawlette. The pattern is available on the “Crochet Uncut” webzine. Fall 2010 issue.

  2. These are FABULOUS pictures! Well done – the both of you! The work’s rather wonderful too.

  3. I don’t know about that magazine. I will have to check it out! Thanks. πŸ™‚

  4. Found it! What a cool ezine! Thanks for letting me know about it. πŸ™‚

  5. I like all of them, too, but I think my favorite is the first one with ytour glasses on.

  6. Great pictures! You are in your element and obviously chose the right person who has a talent not only for photography but for putting you at ease.

    • Thanks Cheryl, actually the last group of photos are the goofy ones. DJ got some great ones and the first photo is the one I chose to be my main professional photo. Problem with having such a good friend take the pics is he kept making me laugh.

  7. Fabulous pictures. You are beautiful and your smile shows your zest for life, and a little mischief! All pretty scarves. Good job you (and DJ).

    • Mischief? Me? LOL!

      Thanks for the compliments, I’m chuckling because most of the photos in this post are the “rejects”. I guess that means they don’t look as bad as I thought. Though aren’t we all our worse critics?

  8. Beautiful photos, Andee!
