Self Portrait Challenge- "Black & White" Glam

I let my oldest have free reign over my last B & W self-portrait for February. I wanted to try glamorous this week but I found at 45 I had forgotten what hard work that actually is. The make up and hair was easy enough because I just sat there and let her go. She had to mention how hard it is to put make up on eyes with lots of wrinkles though, as she stretched my eyes into my ears. The hard part was getting that glam feel in my face for the shot. If I looked serious, I looked pissed and if I smiled, it was too much. I just finally said I'll work with what I have so far and photo shop I did!

This was my family's pick but I did not see glam...sorry guys!

This is me being a smart ass while Michelle was frustrated at my lack of a sexy look. I told her it's hard to look sexy for my daughter. The one where I stuck out my tongue I deleted but this one I kept for her :)

I think you were very successful and should be proud. Try this again, honey, when you are 60!

The first one is gorgeous, your eyes are very seductive. And I love the last one too, it's fun, and so full of colour. Well, they are all great. And you are one glam babe :)

Brian said...

I like the first one the best. But, all of them are beautiful not just glam.

There is something shining through beneath it all. Something lovely and compassionate.

I can't decide which I like best - they're all such different moods - but sister's definitely a hottie in all three. Yes, glam. Smouldering eyes, exquisite bone structure - as beautiful outside as in. You go, grrl!

I love these photos! Especially the last one--in color! :) And your words remind me of a photo shoot that I did with my mom a few months ago. She got her hair done, got all beautiful and then I had to repeat over and over..."nooooo, mom! look seeeexy!" It was hilarious. I don't ever remember laughing that hard with her before. It sounds like you and Michelle had fun, too! Oh yes...these are what good memories are made of. :)

I'm voting for the second one...they're all great, but that one has the sexy, glam thing going for it plus that twinkle in your eyes.

Definitely glamorous. Love all of then. LOL about the wrinkles. You must be a fantastic photoshopper. I don't see a single one, though if you really do have them, I'm sure you earned each and every one. :) You are one beautiful woman.
