~Lurrrrrve this portraits!
.
I've never had my portrait done by a professional photographer ...errr school yearbook, driver's licence or passport photos do NOT count! Anyway, if I were to have one done, this beautiful portraits of model, Natalia Vodianova would be a lovely inspiration I think. Would love to wear a simple voluminous ball gown, no fancy jewelry, natural make-up...and most importantly NO shoes! My-my-my...I'm so vain like that!(blush-blush*). Anyway I think I would look fabulousss...I can already picture it! ~take a look:

Kristin said...

SO gorgeous!! I struggle with posing for pictures. I always feel like I look goofy. Ah ha

These pictures are so gorgeous..No self portraits of me yet..Unless my new photo booth hobby counts :)
I have become obsessed with photo booth. ( oh and maybe I can count some of wedding pictures, but that was a long time ago)

the gown is so gorgeous Lenore, I bet you would look so stunning in it! I love to wear gowns and then 'lose' my shoes late night..always makes me feel a bit like Cinderella.
Have a nice evening
xoxo

i loathe posing solo. i could never be a model for a number of reasons so yea.

WendyB said...

Very pretty! I get embarrassed posing for pix!

Iva said...

oh Lenore!! you look AMAZING ;) you seem to have gotten some extra sun in your face lately ;)

but on a serious note, you'd look so lovely in your portraits.

I'm surprised though you don't feel like drivers licenses photos count? I always thought the light blue background did wonders for all of us ;) hehehe

hope you are enjoying your week!!

Simply Mel said...

Hi Hon!
Let me tell you...I used to hate posing for photos! Hate it! But ever since I fell head over heels in love with an artist who always wishes to paint me...well, let's just say, I caved! But only for him and his eyes only! I'm thinking we need to take this idea of a gorgeous ball gown and run with it! You in? I promise to make you laugh and giggle all the way to the 'dark room'!
Bises,
Melissa

Caroline said...

Oh...love it! How cute are you!

Juanita said...

What a lovely dress!

I love the more natural shots that some photographers manage to take - captured moments of people in action or laughing or just being.

This photographer manages to capture such moments no matter what the occasion:

urghhhh omg that dress is to die! stunning!

Jan said...

Lovely shots - gorgeous dress.
She's a little on the skinny side though - no ?

Grant said...

I've thought about having portraits taken - but then I realised that I'm far too self deprecating. It would wind up driving me insane.

I do love the idea of it - there's something so deliciously self-indulgent about it; but in a really positive way.

That is the exact way I have all my portraits done too. Voluminous dress, simple make-up, no shoes. Check, check, and check. I look good, too.

me melodia said...

Richest blue isn't it.
I think I want to get married in a deep blue like that.

Bathwater said...

Well remember that is probably 1 picture of 100 taken. But it is beautiful I think the nice long legs showing from beneath the gown are what makes the shot! Don't forget to show your legs!

caroline @ patagonia gifts said...

photojoy said...

I wish I could see you in that gorgeous dress.

Kay said...

i recently met an artist at an art soiree and he said he would love to do my 'portrait' --not the first invitation...but the cynic in me says there is more to a man inviting a woman to do a 'portrait' no? sigh...how vain i am, as every chance i let slip by is another reminder that one day, one day...i will be old.

nookie said...

Jaime said...

Such gorgeous portraits- she is one of my favorite models.
