So listen, a couple of months ago I got an email from Emily Clark at Winkfotos asking if I wanted to be a part of her Mommy Models project. I know Emily back from a few years ago when she took my photo as part of a Sassy Scoops things we did when I was 17 weeks pregnant with Triple. She's funny, personable, and pretty much pocket sized, not to mention a talented photographer and entrepreneur. I like her. Even though I'm pretty picky about who I let call me "mommy", I just so happened to be in need of some profile pictures for various writing and media endeavors and I knew Emily does great work so I said absofrigginlutely.
I'll give Emily credit, I was pretty specific about what I wanted and she delivered. I told her I didn't want to be photoshopped all to hell, I wanted my eyes to be their normal color (and not glowing, people this is a joke. You are not a vampire, neither are your children). I wanted the colors to be normal and not all saturated. I wanted to look like me, a good version of me, but me still the same. Emily laughed and hopefully wasn't offended and she managed to get it all done in about 20 minutes because I was 45 minutes late, that's how I roll embarrassingly enough. Here's the shot I used for my FB profile pic, you can judge for yourself:
I like it, like a lot. People, this is really how I look when I'm not in sweatpants and have fixed my hair for the day. Bow chicka, right? Too bad that only happens about one or two days a week. ZING! You can see the rest of the photos she shot HERE and you should probably go "like" Mommy Models on facebook, which is pretty sweet because there are giveaways and contests all the time. Should you be interested in your own shoot, give the MM team a call and TREAT YO SELF.
Thanks Emily! You're a gem.
*der, MM gave me this shoot for free in exchange for my glowing endorsement which is only glowing because it's true.
