Before we get into this post, I have to tell you that I’m really not a fan of getting my picture taken or sharing pictures of my face. 

With that being said, about a month ago I hired a local photographer, Patty Calla of Calla Photography, to take some much needed headshots. Needless to say, my own personal photography was no longer cutting it. Plus, I wanted some recent pictures for the new blog layout. 

Thanks to Patty, I now have a fabulous collection of photos to choose from! 

I really wanted to get my pictures taken in the fall. I wanted all of the seasonal colors, plus I love fall clothing the best. Luckily, she was able to squeeze me in! 


We had some fun with the photos…

and I changed outfits a few times,… 

but still she managed to get some great professional shots! 

This one is my personal favorite.

I’m so thankful to Patty for her amazing work. 

Okay, that’s enough of my face. Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!
