Self-Portrait | Januaray 2013

January has been a whirlwind of preparing for visitors combined with scheduling portrait sessions, taking personal photos for upcoming blog posts, and photographing our adventures while my brother-in-law and his girlfriend were in town. Since so much of my month has been spent behind my camera, I knew I wanted to include it in this month's self-portrait.  I also wanted to do something to remind me of the fun time we had showing our family around our new home city. It wasn't until we were viewing the gorgeous sunset that I decided on this spontaneous, spur of the moment location for this month's self-portrait.

This photo was taken at Hunt's Tomb in Papago Park, which we visited after spending our day at the Phoenix Zoo, and checking out the hole in the rock at the park.  When it comes to playing tourist, I'm all about comfort!  So, here I am sporting pigtails, a hat, and my comfy walking shoes while holding my camera for January's self-portrait...

  1. How pretty!!! Ryan used to live in a condo near there and I really loved going on walks through the park. It's weirdly serene in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Tempe! Pigtails look so cute on you! :)

    1. Thanks, Kara! I keep thinking I'm too old for pigtails, yet I just can't seem to make myself give them up.
