Wanted: Head of Medusa

Due to my business being what it is (small, run from my home, handmade products) I don't really have the luxury of employees...or models. I take pictures when the sun is in the right spot and James has time to help me.
The thing is, and I'm sure I've mentioned this before...I hate having my picture taken. My insecurities rise up like a big sea monster from some bad 70's film and stomp all over me. It's a cheesy analogy, I know, but when I think of my insecurities I seem to always get images of myself battling the big sea monster from Clash of the Titans so it's appropriate.



See? My getting my picture taken insecurities are gigantic and scary.

My photo editing process takes a very long time because of this. Trust me when I tell you that you will never see a photo of me advertising my jewelry that has not been heavily photoshopped. And again, this is all very strange because I feel pretty ok with everything when I look in the mirror. It's just photo weirdness.
And today I discovered something new to worry about...

...apparently I have a giant head. I'm not really sure how I've been balancing it for so long, it's far bigger than normal heads should be:



The good news is, as disproportional as my head is to my body, there are big heads out there that put mine to shame:

Big concrete head


Big building head

I feel better now, don't you?

Ha! I have a huge head, too, but the artwork in this post makes me feel much better!

oh gasp! I love the phoenix necklace. Although, I think that giant baby head is going to haunt me today. :P

I have having my picture casually taken. I always look goofy.

You are beautiful in this picture and I love that necklace you have on. The giant baby head is giving me the willies, though.

Oh my goodness, you are crazy! You look beautiful, and you're head is not abnormally big. Ahhh, but you made me laugh so hard Gabe looked at me like mommy was going crazy, which is always fun. :) I love the new jewlery!

♥You are beautiful...but we are always our own worst critic. Indeed that baby head is creepy...though it might be creepier if it were tiny...hrmm
