Me

I took no pictures today, but I wanted to post a few pictures that Jessica took of me in Las Vegas. She, and several other photographers, have told me that it is not okay to be scared of being in front of the camera. It makes sense - how can I make someone feel comfortable on the other side of my camera if I can't even do that myself? So, after lots of complaining, I really tried to relax while she was literally inches away from my face with her camera. To me, she is a miracle worker. I actually really like several of the pictures that she took.

After all of this happened, Jasmine Star posted this blog post. And I thought to myself, wow, it really is okay to feel beautiful when you are in front of the camera. I felt empowered by her words and I am going to start making a conscious effort to have more pictures taken of myself, especially with my family. Thanks Jessica, for the beautiful pictures, and thanks Jasmine, for the inspiring words.

Beautiful photos, Kelly. You really should spend more time in front of the camera!!

Sarah said...

Gorgeous! I agree, you should get in front of the camera more.

Amanda said...

Fantastic shots! That first one is stunning! You're beautiful! I loved Jasmine's post too. I hate having my picture taken, but I think, maybe, I'll lighten up a bit more next time the camera is in front of me. Self-confidence is important.

Simply lovely. I bet Justin loves all of those photos!

You are gorgeous! You have a smile that makes others smile. And your outfit with the purple top and that skirt...I think I need it! You have NO reason to be scared of the camera. It will also be fun for the girls when they are older to look at pictures of their mama when they were little kids.-Maureen

You have a beautiful profile! These are gorgeous pictures. I agree with everyone else you need to be in more pictures. Plus when you look back at pictures you will wish you had been in more with the girls instead of always being behind the lens. :)

Oh' WOW! You should NOT feel scared to be in front of the camera! You are beautiful! And your girls will cherish the results of you being in front of the camera, later on in their lives! Kuddo's to you for getting brave, and doing it!

Mom said...

My dearest Kelly Belly,
Are you going to be on America's next top model?
(Hope not, I actually can't stand that show!)

Great pics, you need to get Justin one!

Sorry about all the rain, it's headed our way. ick

Love and kisses, LeeLee

daonguyen said...

kelly you look gorgeous. i was talking about the whole me not being in front of the camera the other day. i am totally like you and NEVER want to get my picture taken but you've inspired me to try. you really do look beautiful! thank you!

Amy Jo said...

Stunning! Amazing photos...and I can't stop thinking about that purple top with the damask skirt. I need it...I want it!

Missy said...

You are a DOLL!!! If I had that beautiful skin and grin, i'd be hopping in front of the camera, too! Instead, I have pimples and a double chin...working on that, though!

Candace said...

Beautiful photos! I agree with everyone else, that first one is absolutely stunning!

I can identify with being camera shy...I am always hiding behind the camera. But I really want to have more pictures with my girls, so I'm going to follow your example and try to loosen up!

Kristen said...

Wow! A-maz-ing!

erinlo said...

Gorgeous, Kelly. You are simply beautiful!!

Kristi said...

Kelly,

How can you not think that you are amazingly beautiful?

These pictures are stunning but I've never seen a picture of you that wasn't.

And that first photo . . . wow!

Kristi

seashy said...

I have to agree with the looking back at pictures of their mama. it is just so fun to see lee back in the day :) i especially like the ones where she has long blonde pig tails and mini skirts! :)

Palette said...

beautiful pictures. you are a doll kelly, can't wait to see you next week

Norah said...

These are just so beautiful.

Nicki said...

these pictures are so great! i am totally camera-phobic but I am realizing the more time goes by that I am doing my kids a disservice by being so camera-hating. You've inspired me to (think about) getting pics of myself with my kiddos.

Heather said...

YOU SHOULD BE A MODEL. SERIOUSLY.

Lynn said...

absolutely beautiful! and I LOVE that purple dress! I think I also need it!!

Jessica said...

I'm sorry. I just had to scroll for 1/2 an hr to get to the bottom of the comments page. Do you believe me now? Your totally GORG! And, I am SO glad to know that I was the one that got to break you in. Next shoot? Austin? ; )

LeighAnn said...

You are beautiful. I don't even know you in real life, but it looks like your personality is shining thru in these pics. Plus, you are one hot momma!!!!! YAY for you for getting way out of your comfort zone (even though I can't tell that you are uncomfortable)!!

Shawna said...

Well we've always known this, but Kel, those pics are gorgeous! I know what you mean about getting in front of a camera...I hate it too, and the more I work with the media the less I want to actually be in the shot. But Kel, really, you have to know you're beautiful girl, and those shots are really fantastic. Keep working hard! So sad I'm missing you girls in AR once again this weekend.

Stacie said...

Christina said...

raisingpate said...
