So I did it. I finished the photo shoot in about an hour and learned tons about how awkward and painful most cute female modelling poses are. Oi, my ankles. My knees. Christie was incredibly patient with me as I stared blankly into her camera. Much of our conversation went like this:
"Bring your leg up."
"The left one. And bring your right one down."
[sigh from photographer] "Okay, now look sultry."
[photographer shakes her head] "That's not really...sultry."
"I really suck at this."
"No one said modelling was easy. Now give me sexy."
Needless to say, I was a complete amateur! I think I did okay; the photos on her preview screen didn't look like me at all, and that's a good thing. Edits should come soon. I might have neat surprises to give away at book signings in the future.
Hey, I'm open. Keep the puns down please.
And Xan, yes. Your guitar certainly gets around.
