I am jealous of people who can smile for a camera. It is like running. Some people run with grace and elegance. They are born for it. When I run, it is like I am plodding in the mud.
Some people smile and their mouths actually turn up at the sides. How do they do that? Their teeth shine and their dimples dance. When I smile for a camera my mouth goes sideways like a deranged clown. Sometimes my mouth goes downwards. I don’t know why. I really am happy I promise.
So, kudos to Jenny Ruddle Photography for giving me directions (shoulder down, head forward, to the side a little) and actually getting a smile from me that looks like I am sane. So here is a new ‘author photo’ unveiled!
