Okay, so the background on this post. For awhile I've been using a photo taken at a book signing. it was a good photo of me, I liked it, but I really wanted something a bit more professional looking. Unfortunately, I have no money to pay for a professional photographer.
So, one day I'm scrolling through Facebook - which I often am known to do when I'm procrastinating - and I saw a post, "Hobby Lobby Photo Shoot." As a craft person, I know the store extremely well. And, as the type of person that sees Pinterest posts and thinks, "I can do that," I knew I'd try it.
On a day last week I had to take my son to a doctor's appointment and run several other errands, which included getting my license renewed. It was the perfect opportunity to hit Hobby Lobby. I mean, I cleaned up, was wearing a nice outfit, and even had on some makeup. Who likes to look awful on their drivers license for four years? Not me, so I try to look decent.
After the appointment and getting my new license - which did look okay - we headed across town. A few stops later and we were walking through Hobby Lobby. My son kept looking at me strangely as I posed by flowers and other objects, smiled, and took a selfie. Now, let me explain, I could have asked him to take a photo but most likely I wouldn't have gotten a good photo. With his ADHD and such he's always in too much of a hurry to really stop and search for the perfect angle and such. So, a selfie it was.
Here is my "Hobby Lobby Photo Shoot." I hope you'll let me know what you think. I will admit at trying to sneak around because it was a bit strange to be taking selfies in a store like that. At one point I heard them call out, "Associates, Code One," I thought for sure they were coming for me.
