I ♥ Faces - Week 17 ▌ Sierra Vista Photographer, Arizona

I'm back to I ♥ Faces, the website for photography that I love so much, for inspiration, for improving my skills and learning new tricks. Go check it out and enter their weekly contest with your favorite "hat portrait". I missed last week because, I am happy to say, I was working hard editing my portraits. And, I confess, my entries tonight are oldies, but goodies. We are gearing up for a big move out to Fort Huachuca, in Arizona, which means all my client work has to be complete and loose ends tied before June. My child entry is of course, The Boy, and this series of him, which I use in my header, just makes me smile. He is playing with a cowboy hat that we actually have photos of Daddy wearing as a four year old, priceless! And my adult photo is really just for fun, a photo of a photo actually. My husband gets credit for this one, taken at my college graduation! Yes, VINTAGE Karyn everybody! It didn't seem right to graduate from the College Of Fine Arts wearing a plain old cap and gown, so I wore a furry handmade number with a pair of DENTURES!!! (the artist, and dear friend, who made the hat is posing with me). Yes, those are honor cords too, proof that you can be smart AND "artsy fartsy".

Love that kids photo and the adults photo must have an amazing story attached to it!

So you are smart? :) How on earth did dentures become part of the idea? You will always love that picture of the boy...until he decides to be a Chippendale dancer and you will know where it started!!

To Adrienne in Ohio, who is cracking up about the chippendale comment, Julie has seen the WHOLE series, including the pics where you see his tighty whities and his over the shoulder grin as his t-rex buns go racing under my back drop.... they are ADORABLE and totally unsuitable for the internet. Pictures only a Mother would cherish ;)

Love it = the boy is such a cute cowboy! And your hubby is right, you are definitely BFF material with that sense of fun (silly hat) and academic commitment (I wore the cords too). Such fun to see some old photos from your archives. Thank you for sharing!
