I needed an appropriate picture of myself for publicity for my book “Why Can’t We Just Play?” In the recent past, whenever I’ve needed a picture for any project I’m doing, I usually dug one up from around the house.
Sometimes it’s something that my husband had snapped spur of the moment ...
Sometimes it had Baxter in it ...
Or it could be a picture that doesn't feature me at all!
But now, with my book coming out (have I mentioned I have a book coming out?) it was time to get professional about it.
I called my friend, photographer Loreen Lesso, because
a) I knew she would take terrific pictures,
b) I knew I would feel comfortable posing for her, and
c) she wanted to let Baxter be in some of them!
We were hoping for a cloudy day, because we wanted to shoot outdoors.
But it turned out to be sunny, so we shot mostly indoors. She was so relaxed and professional, and we had a lot of fun. Plus, she has a great tip for a way to diminish wrinkles in photographs.
Put an adorable dog in the picture! No one will care about your wrinkles!
Thank you Loreen! xoxo
