Strike a pose

photo-292Last Thursday I was snowed in, solo, with four small children. Monday was completely different. I journeyed into NYC to be interviewed for a potential article in More magazine, and then I discovered my inner fashion model as part of a 4-hour photo shoot. Check out the bathroom selfie I snapped with my hair in curlers. I was wearing my own clothes at that point, but I wound up in 5 separate professionally styled outfits. The photographer would take a shot, then the stylist and make-up artist would swoop in to fuss over the drape of my clothes.

I have to say, I was a little nervous about doing a high-fashion photo shoot less than 8 weeks after giving birth. But the photographer, who posts awesome selfies on Instagram, said something along the lines of “Don’t worry, I can make myself look good. I’ll make you look great!” As Tina Fey points out in Bossypants, Photoshop is all good.

And yes, that is the Pump-in-Style I’m carting in this photo.
