The next step after the design change was to FINALLY splurge and have a professional photo shoot done of me in my kitchen and I learned a few things.
#1. I am not photogenic...AT ALL; which is why I put this off for so long. I smile and my eyes crunch up so tight, that they look like slits. Seriously, I have lizard eyes! (Made you laugh didn't I?!). And if I don't smile, I look like I'm constipated. Not quite the image I want to portray!
#2. I SERIOUSLY need to drop a few pounds. All of this cooking over the last 2 years has really taken a negative toll on this aging body. I just don't bounce back as quick as I used to.
#3. Bob Ernst from Robert Wayne Photography is a GENIUS! Not only was he professional, but his prices were very reasonable, he was very accommodating and made me look good! (Well, at least my hubby thinks so and that's all that matters to me!). His specialty is wedding photography, but he does portraits as well. If you live in the Northern NJ area, give him a call and tell him I sent you! After NUMEROUS shots and poses, here is the final one I'll be using.
What do you think?
Are there any other changes or features that you would
like to see here at Carrie's Experimental Kitchen
in the coming months?
I'm also looking for someone locally in the tri-state area that can help with some minor IT support. If you or someone you know does this kind of work, please email me at carrieexpktchn (at) optonline (dot) net.
Have a great weekend everyone!
