New Profile Picture...What Would I Do Without The Help Of My Kids?!

I have been meaning to get an updated profile picture for a long time. It has only been something like 20 haircuts and 2.5 years since my last one was taken...

After coming home from getting my hair cut, again, I asked Isabella if she would take a photo of me. She was distracted, currently in the middle of making applesauce with her Dad, trying out the new food processor. So I had her attention for five minutes, tops. First thing she did? Tell me to wipe away my lipstick! She is not a fan of my "too brown" shade. Oh well, I know for certain I will be making a similar remark to her in a very short period of time. So...off came the lipstick, or most of it.



We found a spot and she took enough shots to get one good one.

"Thanks Isabella, I appreciate it...", I said as she ran back to the kitchen, nearly tossing the camera back to me.

She knows what is really important: Time with Dad & cooking!

  6. Love the new picture, Janell, and that we can see your face up close! Isabella did a great job, even distracted! : ) I need to think about getting a new one done myself, but I am so picky and bad with pictures. I'd need 100 to pick 1 I actually like! I usually go to a Glamour Shots place, but they are too much now. My current photo is from last March but I like to keep current.

  29. You look great! I noticed your new pic on your last comment on my blog and I actually remarked to my guy that "oh Janell's got a new pic". No comment from him but he was too engrossed in his blackberry to notice - sorry - but I love it. You look great in that purple shade. :)

  31. My profile picture was outdated too so I deleted it and STILL haven't replaced it. I have the camera, but unfortunately no child photographers running around the house. Thanks for reminding me that I need to get it done. Yours turned out great - maybe Isabella will become a photographer? If she does that well on the fly, think of what she could do if she focused! :-)
