A Beautiful Mess -- Self Portrait Challenge

So I read about A Beautiful Mess' 30-Day Self-Portrait Challenge and opted to join in. A few of the participants will receive an autographed copy of their new book... how cool is that? Basically, all of my product shots are self-portraits but I'm kind of looking forward to sharing some more candid shots from my life. You know, like tonight's photo where I'm overheated from New York's humid heatwave and working all day. I'm finally home with my Corgi and that makes me a happy girl. We will probably camp out on the living room floor again with the AC and watch an old movie. To me, that's partying but it doesn't take much to impress me. If you are joining this fun challenge please let me know in the comments! It's a great way to get artsy and learn a bit more about portrait photography without having an irritable model... like your sister. ;) I love my sisters but they hate having their pictures taken. I am going to rope them into a shoot along with their husbands though so I can have some fun photos of the family decorating my apartment. I've begun painting around here so I'll share some photos of the progress soon. I also want to reupholster and couple chairs and sew new drapes and curtains. I can hardly wait!
