JA Thru the Years... In Pictures

By
Education & Training with Sell with Soul

Yesterday, I found a folder deep in one of my dusty file boxes of all my real estate agent photos thru the years. Remember, Old Fogies, how when you used to have to get physical copies of your photos to send in with your business card orders? Anyway, I found a bunch of them.

Call me narcissistic, but I thought they were fascinating. I didn't think I'd changed all that much over the last 13 years, but my stash of photos sez otherwise.

Here they are, in all their glory.

My very first professional photo from 1996; age 29.

Circa 1998; I always thought I was a natural blond...guess not.

Circa 2000; my, I was fluffy.

Ok..you definitely have gotten better looking thru the years.  How about the experience you have gained to go along with the changes in the pictures huh??

I ALWAYS can pick out a Glamour Shot...and I think they are good for somethings...just not professional stuff! 

Your blogs arent bad either !LOL-  Bucky

LOL I do not care to share my pics, but I thank you for sharing yours. I get a good laugh at how much I have changed... but I save that laughter for myself and get it from the kids. HA

Hi Jennifer.  You are a bold lady.

My favorite of yours is 1998.  You look younger today!

Thanks for sharing,

How is that you look so much younger today?  I have aged at least 30 years since 1996

I agree with all those that have said you look younger...you TRULY look younger.  The more casual style definitely fits you best...you are so not the Glamour Shots type!

2008 photo wins hands down, no contest!

Wow! You sure have gone through a transformation or two.  I love the present shots and your new profile pic.  Thanks for giving us a glimpse of your evolution. I will say that one of the qualities that I notice in your photos is the older you get, the more confident you appear.  You go girl!

I love looking at old photos.  I like your current profile picture best.  From one Southern Belle to another... once a Southern Belle, always a Southern Belle.  :o)

My niece recently talked me into switching hairstylists because she said I've had the same style for over 10 years!

I love your new profile pic.  I think that is my favorite one.  You look like you really enjoy what you're doing ;)

You are not getting older, you are getting better!

Cute photos. I think you are aging backwards....

Good for you, keeping your photos updated. I need to redo mine or my clients are going to stop recognizing me soon!

I have retaken them a couple times in the last few years and hated the photos. Still use the ole one. You are inspiring me to try again!

Thanks for all the kind comments on my backward-aging... in all seriousness, I agree - and I do feel younger today than I did in 1996. How can that be? Well, since you didn't ask... I'll tell ya anyway. I lost 20 pounds by cutting out food I was allergic to and it's life-changing. Someday I'd love to make it my life's work to help others figure out what foods are aging them and making them sick and tired and BLAH - it's different for everyone and it's quite a journey, but worth every tedious step...

Maybe you could write a book on that too! Bet you'll sell lots of it. Call it, age-defying success. Learn my secrets.

Absolutely beautiful...every one of them!! I just might have to dig up my Glamour Shots pic. My ex gave me a gift certificate for Valentine's Day in 1995. They aren't half bad...but I don't think I'll be posting them. lol
