A Whole Lotta Andrew by Meg Reilley...

The talented Meg Reilley came by today with the images from the photo-shoot. Wow is she a wizard with a camera! We were all very happy with the results. Below are some of the images of me. I'll let Cynthia post the pictures of the rest of the family.

I feel like if I were ever to make a break for Hollywood, this would be the headshot I'd carry out there. LA here I come!

I jest, but I think she made me look good. At first I was concerned that I would look like a tree-hugger, but I like how the rough surface of the tree bark makes my face look super smooth! It's like I got an instant facelift by comparison.

I don't know why, but that song by Stevie Nicks called "Edge of Seventeen" comes to mind when I see this one. I don't know if that's a good thing or not.

Believe it or not, I'm camera shy. Even though I'm at peace with myself and I've made a truce with my many scars and flaws, there's still a little voice in the back of my head that tells me to get out of in front of the camera lens. I admire bloggers like Nina Bagley and Jane Ann Wynn who post images of themselves on regular basis.

Here's the last picture of me... I promise. But I wanted to put up this last picture, because I like how the lens and frame of the picture arches my already arching eyebrow a little higher.

These photos are great! The last one looks like a good author shot for a book cover.

Awesome photos - I am camera shy too and all my photos reflect it - these are wonderful and so relaxed looking - great job.

Andrew, you look wonderfully handsome in those pics.

some people need to be in motion so that you can get a sense of their true essence--in fact--these are the best photos I have ever seen of you. Study the way she crops. That is awesome. The softness of you in black and white, almost grey, is a geat addition. Love these. jean xox

Like I said on Facebook, you are enviably photogenic.

And coming from one, what's wrong with being a tree hugger? Except the scratchy bark and the ants....
