101 things about me

I was shot and I survived...

A few months ago, Mal needed a model for his photography course and so I (rather reluctantly) volunteered. I agreed to model for him on the proviso he was to delete any really bad pics and that he retouched out any spots or major wrinkles. I thought that was more than reasonable!

It actually went quite well in the end, thanks to some good lighting - Oh and Mals photography too! Once I relaxed, we even had a bit of a laugh.

He said he didn't have to do TOO much retouching, and at 41, I am happy to believe him!

You can go and visit his new web page here at PortraitPro...
It's still in it's early stages, but he already has some great shots. Go to his gallery and take a look!

Holy Crap, did you say you're 41?!! And you look like this???!!! I don't believe it. Sorry I just don't. You don't look a day over 31. You're gorgeous and I'm envious.

If you hear rustling in the bushes outside your windows, it'll be me sneaking about with a notepad and spy camera noting all the details of your "creams and regimes"

You are so not 41. Shut up. Those are adorable!

Very cute! And I don't believe that you're actually 41 either! Much younger I'd have guessed.

Mal has some good photos there on his page.

ditto to all the above comments!!!! absolutely you do not look or sound 41 although I have to say that I'm not really sure what being 41 sounds like!!! and being 43 myself I'm not sure I know what being 40+ is supposed to feel like!!!! I suppose age is just a state of mind- sometimes I feel 18 at other times much, much older!

hey Jacinta..if you you wanted to feel good about yourself...these photo's (WOW!!!) and ensuing comments should lift your spirit's a mile... as Trashalou aptly says.."Your gorgeous"..Have a great day....;-)

I'm taking commissions ;)

I promise never to tell what retouching was done or how long it took! Or, I promise to say that no retouching was done... It's your choice.

Cinta gets lots of credit for being able to step outside of her comfort zone and do things that scare her...

Jacinta, you look amazing. Would you mind taking a copy of your birth certificate and placing it on your blog. No, seriously, you look fresh and amazing.

What fabulous photos - you look just lovely in all of them. (I hope I look as good at 41. Actually who am I kidding - I don't look as fresh faced now at 40!)
