I Cheat Death

Recently, The BF and I took part in a photoshoot designed and photographed by Jessica Sladek, a photographer in Chicago (click here to see his). She had people show up and write something significant about themselves on a white dry-erase board. And then she photographed you in front of it.

By the time I was photographed, the board was loaded sayings like "I want to inspire people", "I lack direction", and "I have just one flaw" (which was obviously NOT mine). Here is the one Jess took of me:

Some facial expression huh? Perhaps I am being skeptical? Perhaps I am being judgmental? Perhaps I am thinking a dirty but fun thought? Perhaps I am saying "come here", or perhaps it is "don't even think about it"? Or perhaps something else. Whatever the case, it's a good shot of me.

And I like the sentence I chose. If you look over to the right, in the center, you will see "I Cheat Death". When I told The BF what I wrote, he responded with, "That's good for you." I like the picture Jess took of him, too. And I am excited to see the others as well. Some of the things that were written on the board were very inspiring.


  1. Ooo, that's a nice idea, this photosession thingy :)

  2. This is a wonderful picture - you look great. And "I cheat death" - that should be on a T-shirt for you.,
