Want to hear my awkward moment from this past week? It was definitely when I hopped in my car at the end of Muriel’s 2 hour senior session in Carbondale Illinois the other night to head home. I checked the rearview mirror to reverse my SUV and I smiled. I smiled for many reasons – the beautiful spring day we just had, the beautiful spring night we were about to have, the delicious date night dinner my husband and I were able to have together once I returned to town, Easter Sunday, my Lord lives!, the awesome session I’d just finished, and the amazing young woman I had just photographed.
All of that made me smile in that moment as I checked the mirror but what followed made me laugh… Through my smile I caught a glimpse of my teeth. My teeth that had lipgloss on them. The lipgloss that I applied to my lips right before I met up with Muriel two hours previous. Yes, I had lipgloss smudged on my front teeth the entire session! And no one, not Muriel, her father, or her sister, said anything about it! Haha!!! I immediately called Neil to tell him about it… He laughed and said it sounded like something I would do! I swear, I’m usually much more professional.. Oy.
That should tell you a couple things about Muriel already: she’s incredibly sweet and polite and is great about getting past physical appearances right away! The lovely Muriel is one talented lady to boot! Dance team member and very active in her church, she plans on studying physiology and becoming a Physician’s Assistant one day. I am so excited for her and her bright future! And even though it was a tad embarrassing that I had lipgloss on my teeth the whole time, I sincerely hope I get to see her again!
