Photo shoot

I've had a few requests for professional quality photos recently.  And since, unlike previous requests, these weren't from anonymous men on the internet swearing I could become the next top model (and by the way, did I have a webcam!?), I thought I'd have some real photos taken.  By real photos, I mean not something snapped with a cell phone, which is what makes up my current photo collection.

So today I treated myself to a makeover and a professional photo shoot.  Merry Christmas to me.

It was a little disconcerting to see myself with a full face of makeup.  I usually just wear a bit of lipstick.  But it was fun.






Hey, now I have an author photo for the book I haven't written.

  4. Woot wooooo... heeello gargeous...

    I've been tempted to do this sort of shoot. It would be very 'un me' of me, but that's sort of the point, right!? x

  6. Aw, thanks guys, xx Fair warning - my son looked at the pictures and said, "that doesn't look like you!"

    @Maxabella - you should do it! I'm pretty much a jeans and t-shirt Kansas girl but it was fun to get glammed up for a change. Made me feel sexy!

  7. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!!

    Definitely something that's fun to do - especially if you don't normally get glammed up!

    I'm toying with the idea of having professional pics done of me in my wedding dress (we had a friend do our pics instead - biggest regret ever!) I think seeing how stunning yours are has sealed the deal for me!

  11. Kristin, you look beautiful. I'm always advising my business women style clients to update their professional photos every year. It's a business asset that you need on hand for sponsors and media requests. xx

  18. Oy. Gorgeous much????

    I haven't done photo shoots with a pro, but I do have what is becoming an annual deal with a dear friend of mine: we get all glammed up, meet for breakfast, and then go to a park somewhere and take turns shooting each other. With cameras, of course, not guns. Maybe if it were other people, but I happen to LIKE her. :P

    And it really does make one feel kinda special, doesn't it???

    I'm glad you did it! (((hugs)))

  19. Did I mention - don't worry about the visa thing I will marry you before we go back to Oz. I just have to swing this by Cate but I am sure she when she sees your pic she will be sweet with the idea (Oz slang).

  20. Stunning. I'm a makeup artist and from a professional point of view the makeup is perfection!

  21. OMG you are one yummy mummy! Now you just need to write that book but I'm sure you can do it.
    on a totally unrelated note I was amazed how much photoshop they do on playboy models who look perfect to me: http://jezebel.com/5693656/how-your-playboy-centerfold-sausage-is-made-nsfw

  24. @ Badger - co-wives, not a bad idea, as long as she's intelligent, snarky and enjoys occassional babysitting. The kids will love the cats.

  25. @ Emma - why are they photoshopping beautiful, naked women? Seriously? I mean, with all due respect, when it comes down to it wouldn't most men have sex with a toaster?

  28. What beautiful photo's i think everyone should have a photo shoot at least once in a life time, so that you can see what you look like when a professional takes a photo of you, can't wait to see it on the cover of a book, and I can say I knew Kristen when.............

  29. Lovely pics. Glad you had fun too.

  31. Gorgeous on the outside as well as the inside! Photo shoots are fun huh?!

  32. Aw, you guys, thank you for all the lovely compliments! Please don't expect me to actually look like this when I show up in Sydney. I asked the make-up artist if she would stow away in my suitcase and she said no. So I'm just going to have the photographer Photoshop my actual face before I leave. Coolness.

  33. The outer war paint only highlights the beautiful woman that is always there, only need to look at your smile and your eyes to see the beauty, even when the odds are bad. But truly - great photos K xxx
