I'm Pleased To Meet You

I always said that the most smile inducing photos are the ones that capture the real you. When you aren't really aware of the camera and you're living in the moment.

I suppose that in the midst of all the flash problems he was having, he captured me in mid-laugh.

I've been writing in this little blogspace for going on seven years. This is the first time I've posted a photo of myself. It's nice to finally meet you.

Much love,
Valerie

You are gorgeous Valerie, and it's a beautiful photo. I agree the best photos are usually the ones that are not posed... just like this one!

Nice to meet you too Valerie :)I've been a stalker for awhile now ;)
You're gorgeous and the picture is really amazing... I'm just like you... I hate when people tell me to "smile to the camera" I look so much more like me when people take me photos without me noticing..
