Not long ago, I posted about my real-life friend, Mary Beth, and her burgeoning talent in photography.
I asked her via that post if she would take our annual portraits, which have always been tortuous days of cowlicks, ketchup stains, ill-timed grumpiness, and asynchronous smiles.
Graciously, Mary Beth didn’t even make me say “pretty please.” Instead, she invited us to her Secret Beautiful Place and gave a Sunday afternoon to us. Here’s a sample of what she captured. (I’ve chosen fairly anonymous shots, due to an agreement I have with my husband about the limits of my blogging.)
Tessa had just had her birthday mani-pedi.
At the right time of day, they make you look 10 pounds lighter!
If you thought these were impressive, you should see the shots with faces. MB is a lady of immeasurable talent. I’m so glad that this year we broke the bonds of chain store portraits and entrusted our moment in time with her.
