This is not for likes but rather for getting personal. Not always the smartest thing to do on social media as everyone will have their opinion both good and bad but who cares right! So here goes....I've hid behind a camera taking pictures of others for the last 20 or so years of my life & have somehow become one that will shy away whenever a camera is pointed in my direction. I've absolutely hated getting my picture taken...I loathed selfies & found them to be a tad narcissistic when done consistently but then again who am I to judge...When my Husband @night_scaper began to get heavy into his photography I could see his desire to photograph me. I cannot tell you how many times I reluctantly agreed to being his "model" only to give him maybe 3 seconds tops to capture his shot before telling him to stop. I'd try giving that "sexy face" only to look back at the shots & see that it looked more like I was taking a poop I'd even at times get angry with my hubby when he'd done nothing wrong at all. He just really wanted to capture me.... My shyness would always get the best of me...Over the years it was becoming easier to break out of my shell. The smile on my husband's face whenever he'd captured THE shot, the one I'd later catch him smiling at through his camera made me realize how special a photograph really is to someone. I'd captured many portraits & family portraits over the years but realized I'd never really connected with the true importance of the photos that I was taking. These photos are proof that you've lived! A moment of you frozen in time forever and ever. If I'm lucky I'll live to be old and gray and should that day come I'll be sure to kiss my Husband on the forehead & thank him for breaking me out of my shell as we close the photo album of our life together.....
