New appreciation for ANTM chicks

Okay, my embarrassing love for ANTM has already been exposed in a blog on DWT last year.

Sure, the silly childish behaviour of the girls is grating, but what I like is watching the photo shoots and seeing the resulting pictures.

So, you'd think after watching a few seasons of the show. (and the first season of Canada's Next Top Model) that I'd have learned a thing or two. That I'd be able to make an expression in front of a camera that wouldn't make me look like I was insane or half asleep or on drugs.

But no.

I had a photo shoot this am to get a snap I can send in to RWA for this Golden Heart thing and wow. The photographer was great. And she probably took 40 or 50 pictures. So you'd expect half would be okay? A third? That my biggest problem would be picking my favorite? No. There were really only two, maybe 3 of the whole bunch which weren't hideous.

It's not like I've ever had an model aspirations, but seriously, I thought I could smile at a camera and not look like a moron. Who knew?

Aside from my wedding photos, I have NEVER EVER taken a good photo. EVER.
So 2 or 3 out of 50 sounds good :)

Congrats again, and I hope you have a blast at the conference.

I take awful pics - having my author photos done was a total nightmare... and not one to repeat for a good while, I hope! The only good thing was watching my wrinkles magically disappear with the photoshop, lol.

I think I need emailed proof.

You are so funny, Maureen. BTW, I love the new look of your blog.

lol, Maureen. love your site. I just did the photo thing for RWA, too. Haven't been anywhere near a photographer since my wedding, and it made me feel very guilty that i have never taken my children in for a professional shoot. There were so many cute kids lining the walls. I'm curious to see which one you chose. i liked them both.
