Photography 101

I am trying to teach Matt how to take decent pictures of me.
Somehow- the pics he takes ALWAYS look AWFUL!
I look in the mirror- and I look great ;)
then Matt takes a picture of me- and I want to throw up!
Hmmmmm....
{is that possible?!?}
So this morning we got up
bright and early and went to the
Rainbow Gardens
for a photography session....


Matt's Rules:
*use that zoom baby!
what do you think it is there for?

zoom in!!!
*minimize my chin at all costs!
I do not have 4 chins,
and
I do not want to look like it in your pictures!
*wait for the wind
I do not want to have funky fly away hair!

*make me look sexy!

you can do it- you love me!

Well I have to say-
there were still lots of duds,

but there were also some great shots!
Way to go Matt!
