You may have noticed that I have a new profile picture. I love it--and I'm picky with photos of myself. Precisely the reason I usually take weird photos. I prefer to take a weird photo on purpose than take a terrible one when I want it to be pretty. Yes, I have a complex.
So when my friend Bonnie (formerly Tawdry Hepburn from Houston Roller Derby) approached me about doing a couples photo shoot, I was wary. She assured me that this would be fun and romantic. I didn't have the heart to tell her I often get super awkward during photo shoots and that I don't generally think of myself as romantic. Rob was even less enthusiastic. Being a dude, "photo shoot" and "romantic" was almost as bad as when I say something like "Project Runway."
While I thought this might be really awkward--you know, answering questions that were personally while other people (Bonnie and her husband) watched--it was actually very comfortable and fun. We laughed a lot, and the photos show that, I think.
Normally, with two kids and busy lives, we wouldn't have taken the time or priority to have a photo session of the two of us. It was a treat, both in the moment and after, getting to see the finished product.
