fortunate one

amanda6
this is one of my very favorite photo shoots EVER. i don't know. maybe it IS my favorite one. i think it's interesting, lisa talked about her outfit from this night as being her favorite on her blog. and i think that showed in her photos. you know when you're absolutely 100% comfortable, it makes you look better? i don't wanna sound conceited (i'm really like the farthest person from that. i have horrible image issues) but i really love the way i look in these pictures. and i think it comes mostly from being myself (of course merl's amazing photography skillzzzz may have a wee bit to do with it :)
this is from sunday night after the TxSCC conference. as i mentioned in my post from yesterday, sunday was a bit breezy. i had been cold all day and knew that all i really wanted to do was be warm. merl, emily, lisa and i drove back to our little rental apartment to freshen up for the party that night and we all ended up changing. at first i felt bad for wanting to pull on jeans (busted up and a few sizes too big jeans, notwithstanding), but i was so happy that i did. i hadn't been that at ease all weekend. and i think it shows :)
it's so funny. no amount of fashion can compare with comfort.......and great photography!

These photos are radiant! It absolutely does show that you were feeling great about yourself. Not only that but I love this look, I think everything falls together perfectly. And that Tree and Kimball necklace is so great.

OMG that is THE COOLEST shirt ever! When you mentioned a "leather shirt" I wasn't sure what to expect... but seriously, it's amazing and oh so unique!

And I completely understand by when you feel good, you look better. Nothing to do with be conceited, it's just that you have the most confidence in those scenarios. And I don't blame you here... you look great!!

of course it's your favorite session ever! you look incredible and I love these shots. One day I want to do an outfit in honor of your amazing outfits. I can pretend I'm Matilda hahaha. I have shoes similar to you so that could work. Anyway I love this outfit! your jacket is so cool!! You're the coolest mom ever. you know that? I'm a fan at least. I can't believe you have horrible image issues!! why?? I guess I love your blog because I feel we have similar body sizes/shapes. You're just much more in shape than I am with all your running you do.
