I've never had a real "professional" photo of myself to use for social media or for advertising purposes. I don't think I ever really thought about it or felt a need for one. Finally I decided to just do it and while we were shooting a few new garments for my shop I forced myself in front of my husband's camera and sucked it up. I felt incredibly silly but now I have a cliche photo that says, "Hey, this girl likes to sew".
I even made it in a few other times while fixing and adjusting things. Rare photos. But I guess it's kind of nice to have couple photos of myself working for future sake. Sort of fun.
