Your portraits are wonderful, I really sadly lack in this department! Its a hard thing to do... especially, since I am one who hates having her picture taken. It makes it doubly hard to do, if you dislike "sitting" yourself.. you are a natural at getting the right response #5624102

Teresa Norris March 11, 2008

Ashley and Jennifer, thank you so much for your great comments, which are so encouraging! I appreciate it so much!

Joan, you can do it...just keep practicing. Two years ago I had little confidence in my ability to do portraits, but now I LOVE them. I studied and practiced and practiced. I still do! And I know you can do it, too! And thank you for the lovely comments! #5627204
