Morgan did an excellent job of capturing his playful personality as well. She made getting pictures taken fun.
I had no thoughts of really being in any pictures, maybe just one or two with Leyton but definitely none of just me. I'm not completely shy in front of the camera (which you know if you follow me on Instagram) but I definitely don't like having my pictures taken. I always feel like I look goofy. I feel like I look fat. I feel like I look frumpy. I am my own worst critic.
So, as a defense, I did what I do best. Act goofy.
Acting goofy gives me a distraction when I look at the photo. It gives me something to laugh at and it puts my harsh self judging eye to rest.
But then I got to this shot. It was a shot I didn't know Morgan was taking.
You know what, I'm pretty. My hair looks amazing, my smile warming and friendly. I don't think I've ever said that before out loud (or for all to read). Thing is, I don't give myself enough credit. I beat myself up for being big instead of realizing that I'm an attractive strong woman. My packaging may not be perfect, but what's inside isn't so bad.
Thanks Morgan for making me feel pretty.
