MCLV Outtakes VI

Regardless of what type of photo shoot we’re doing – Activewear, jewelry, or fashion – You can bet that I’m finding a way to not only enjoy myself, but to work off some of my nerves.

Yes, I still get nervous when a camera is on me. That may be somewhat hard to believe, given my choice to become a blogger, but I’m not sure this will ever go away. In fact, I’d rather be taking the pictures than be the subject. I even went through a phase growing up where I refused to allow my family to take photos of me {teenage drama queen reporting for duty!}
