Due to an emergency on the part of the photographer, my portrait session was postponed until this past Wednesday. As it turned out, it was for the best [I really need to remember to trust]. Because of the delay, I was able top get to my hairdresser the day before and she trimmed my hair and added some more highlights.
I arrived for the session the next day feeling more confident. After having my makeup done, I felt like a queen. Leanna the photographer was very nice and put me at ease.
We headed out for the park. Luckily the rain had stopped the day before and we had a gorgeous day to work with [thank you, Team!].
When I first sat down for the first picture I knew John was with me. Right across from me under a tree was a memorial plaque that read
I Leave You This
In Memory of
I knew then John was sending me love.I got the raw proofs back last night and they are gorgeous. It was hard picking just one so I picked several. I figured, why not? I will always have them. But there was one that was perfect for the book. As soon as I get the final photos back I am ready to send the book to print.
I took a selfie with my professional makeup job so I might be able to duplicate it if I ever needed to. I probably can't but it will be fun trying.
