Camera Fun!

Sometimes I think that the best way to tell who someone really is, is to look through the lens of a camera.

For that purpose, I found myself with camera in hand and just snapping random head shots of myself, the result was actually quite fun. I'm also trying to decide on my new profile pic, so you get to help me out....what do you think, which one is your favorite?

Do you know who I really am?


I am a 34 year old woman - juggling life, discovering new things about me as I get older, loving
my husband and children, making the best of my time on earth


I'm an Air Force Wife, committed to my husband and his career, determined to keep the candle
burning when he is deployed, when he is fighting for our country, when he is fighting for our freedom. Determined to do my part.

I'm a mother to two beautiful children,
I nurse boo boo's, I wipe noses, I prepare meals, I give out hugs, I support and encourage


I'm a daughter, a granddaughter, a sister and an Aunt,
keeping family values close to my heart, remembering that there is nothing more important than those you love


I'm a stay at home mom, a daughter of Christ,
full of flaws, far from perfect but happy and content in who I am.


I'm a blogger, I'm a talker, I'm a free spirit, I'm courageous and articulate, I'm crafty and nutty. I listen and I help when I can, I'm all of these and so much more.

This is who I am!



Help me pick the best profile pic...which one do you think I should use?

#1... Cropping out some of your hand and the bottom. You know how to make it an even icon pic. Like 100 x 100 or whatever.

I love the black and white photo the best. It captures your expression so well.

Linds said...

Lovely! I also like the black and white one. And the first one, but the balck and white one is just perfect!

Bonnie said...

I like the second photo best ... but the third one is pretty cool too. Actually, maybe the third one is my favorite. Yeah ... I think the third one.

I liked #2 and #3 but I think I'm leaning more towards #3 because of the clarity and colors.

Posh And Trendy Back to Basics said...

Sorry, but I really meant that I like #2 the best. Duh! I still need those new glasses :)

NJDecorator said...

This is a really cool post. And I think the B&W picture is just great.

Jodi said...

I like the last picture because it shows your creativity! Your description of yourself was very well written!! :)

JMR said...

I like the second and the fourth pictures. You are such a beautiful person!

I'm waiting until we can wear tank tops again; like in your picture. Our high was 17F today.

Mari said...

Tough choice! I like 5 and 6 but I think 5 is best. You did a good job with your description of yourself!

Elenka said...

I like the one just before the last one. I like seeing both your eyes.

Michelle said...

I vote for the 3rd one!

~TAMY 3 Sides of Crazy~ said...

#1 is my favorite!!

Laura said...

Either 1 or 2 =)

YayaOrchid said...

Beautiful post, Sandra! Pls visit my blog for an award. Thank you!

MamaLuci said...

Wonderful idea. i like the description- I'm a stay at home mom, a daughter of Christ,
full of flaws, far from perfect but happy and content in who I am.
And the 2nd picture the best. It appears that the view finder is your eye. Wonderful vantage point. Keep up the awesome work.
BTW, We were reformatting my computer this last weekend. So I was without it for about 18 hours. I found that I missed three postings and felt so behind when i was able to check back in. As I now check you out everyday and then through out the day. Strange how I don't even know you and am several states away (Iowa) and I feel as if I could start up a conversation around the dining room table like you are a long-time friend

Kim said...

What a great post! I like number 2 the best.

MoziEsmé said...

Well defined! And a fun photo session - I had several favorites, but I think I like the first photo the best...

Lara Gisela said...

Beautiful post Sandra. And I like the second photo best.

Terri said...

I liked #2 and #5. It's always hard picking one out, isn't it?

Tina Leigh said...

I cant do it...they are all good!!!!

Kari said...

Hi, thanks for stopping by to visit my blog. I loved the Catherine Cookson movie. I've seen one other of hers called The Dwelling Place. It was also good.

That's such a nice post! All the pics are great, but I think my favorite is the last one.

Hill upon Hill said...
