38. Selfie

I’ve needed to do a new head shot for awhile now. But I’ve made a bunch of excuses why┬áNOT to do it.
1. I didn’t want to waste all the time is would take me and not get several uses from it. If I did it before August 1st I wouldn’t have been able to use it as a theme.
2. I’ve been trying to grow my hair out… But as anyone knows, hair can go through a lot of ugly stages before it gets to an “ok, finally” stage. That explains why I have been wearing it in a pony tail for awhile now!
3. I have 1 business card left.
4. I have had to apologize to the last 2 people I handed a business card to because it looks nothing like me on said business card.
So today I finally did it. I set my camera on my tripod, unpackaged my new wireless remote trigger (thank you Liesel Walsh for recommending a good one), curled and puffed my hair and propped a mirror on the wall across from me.
This is as good as it gets…. I’m sitting in my Indiana t-shirt and sweat pants now. And the florida humidity has already flattened my hair. I will probably still get funny looks when I hand someone my business card. Oh well, I tried!Mindy Towns
