GPOYW: First modeling shoot ever edition! The beginning of the year of course got me thinking about beginnings in general, so I figured I’d throw in a shot from my first portfolio-building modeling shoot. I look so young! Check out the short hair! xoxo, Mandie Photographer: Heather McManamy Model/Hair/MU: Me!

I finally looked up what “GPOYW” was, and found that it is “Gratuitous Picture Of Yourself Wednesday.” Perfect timing, because this shot has come up in conversation a couple times within the last week, and has been on my mind lately. Despite the fact that the trip and shoot itself were pretty close to a disaster, it is one of my favorites, and is one of my first published images. Funny thing is, I didn’t even know that it was going to be published, and was paging

Chocolate really can change my mood from bad to good, good to great, etc! The picture above (a delayed #GPOYW?) is a picture of me enjoying a piece of chocolate… Well, I guess “enjoying” is being used pretty liberally here, since the photographer asked me to smear it on my face!

GPOYW “It’s cold outside” edition. It has been snowing a lot, but not enough for us to get a snow day. This couple inches here and there is pretty, but annoying. Sometime soon, can we please get a good foot, right at around 6am? I want to stay home and cuddle and read and sleep, so I can get over this brutal cold! xoxo, Mandie P.S. Picture by Gibson Bathrick sometime last year in a park in Milwaukee. I did my own makeup and hair… Nothing exciting, though. =)
