Just another pretty face

I stink at self portraits. Really. I do. But I DO love heels and jeans- though I seldom have the opportunity to wear them now. I'm April, I have two boys (2.5 and 9mo) and a fabulous husband. We're currently living in Jersey while my husband attends law school. I love photography and I have a children's portrait business (aprilfphotography.com) which I'm trying to revive due to our recent move- which in the current economy is not really happening. I'm really hoping this challenge jumpstarts my creativity.

Fresh perspective. Your shoes are really cute. Where'd you get them?

I too love those shoes!!! I'm a total shoe freak, and YES, they BELONG with the perfect pair of jeans!!!!! I love the black and white... i think I'll have to play around with that (if i can figure it out... I'm new!)

I have always loved the look of heels with pants...but I haven't ever felt I could pull it off. I'm super short, and I just feel like it looks odd on me...probably my wide hips...

GREAT take on a "portrait" of ones self. Sometimes the best ones, and the ones that show our personality rather than our face. I'd love to see you burn in your shoes a little more, to make them stand out a little more, just to see the effect it causes to the pic. sometimes that's all it takes to make a picture POP.

ooooh...April....DARN YOU! :) JK!! Great take on the assignment, though now we will only know you by a pair of super cute heels! :)

Thanks Shanda- I always forget how helpful vignetting is and need to use it more. I can post a face shot if you like, Rachel. But I pretty much look like H.S. only fatter :)

haha! April, you're funny!!! I love your take on this though--don't get me wrong! You have always been really cute--so don't discount that fact!!!

I have been really tempted to do a similar photo. But my shoes aren't nearly as cute!!

Thank you April! I've wondered how to solve that problem so that I don't have to use photoshop on my backgrounds. My teacher just told me the same thing this week, ha ha. Thanks so much, I LOVE having people leave helpful comments so I can learn to improve.

Love this pic. The stairs make a fun background!

I can't wait to get "professional advice" from you. :0)
