I Shaved My Beard

After about 2 or 2.5 years of having a beard I finally decided it was time for a change. Yesterday, without consulting my wife, I shaved it off. Needless to say she was quite surprised.

The funny thing is now she says the baby does not look like me anymore. How weird is that. My baby girl looked more like me when I had a beard then when I didn't.

That is the problem with being a photographer. I am always behind the camera, not in front of it.

My wife is scared to use this camera as it is my (relatively) new one and she is nervous she will damage it. I will see if I can get her to overcome that fear though, at least for one picture.

I basically now look like this (just not yellow) ------>

Congrats! I did the same thing last year. Went from past the shoulder length hair, and a full beard, both very well maintained, to crew cut and clean shaven. My boss didn't even recognize me, and my mom cried, which looking back I hope that was a good thing?

My mom didn't even notice Tattrat. We dropped the baby off with her today (she babysits for us on Mondays) and her attention was completely on the baby, not on me LOL.
