Hopefully I Was Bettie Page in a Past Life.
I read about this photographer here in Philly who does pin-up photo shoots of everyday women. I was totally intrigued. And as crazy as it sounds, I felt like I needed to do something to gain some personal confidence to get this Canary II thing going, so I decided to go for it. It's kind of the equivalent of skydiving I reckon, except you run the risk of crushing your dignity instead of your femur.
I really really hate having my picture taken. Hate it. Hate it. Hate it. Hence the myspace-esque self-portrait up at the top. But what I'm hoping is that in the hands of a trained professional, I'll take a picture that I'll actually like of myself. It's all lighting and make-up, I guess.
I'm really excited about this. In fact, I was telling the girls at The Canary and they want us to do a whole Canary Cupcake Girl pin-up calendar. They've already mapped out each of the months' shots, including a runaway bride theme in June. Classy, ya know, leave it to their twisted imaginations. That shit would sell. And then I could retire to my chalet in the Loire. I am liking this idea the more and more I think about it.
