photos by Monique Dolbin
If you're stalking me on Facebook like a good reader would, you would have seen a sneak preview of these amazing photos Monique Dolbin from Life in Focus took of me. Is that narcissistic to say about pictures of yourself? That they're "amazing?" Regardless, that's what they are...and it's not at all because I'm so incredibly bloggery-modelesque. Well, not entirely, anyway. They're amazing because Monique has an amazing eye for composition, lighting, and color.
I used to work with Monique a few years ago. Since then, she's taken up photography, at first as a hobby, and more recently, as a professional. She's still building her business (complete with a package tailor-made for those of us who have gone/are still going through our quarter-life crisis), so she asked me if I'd like to take a few pictures in D.C. to round out her portfolio. And who am I to say no to the chance to have my picture taken?? Not Melissa, that's for sure!
