We've come a long way since our virgin cover. But what an exciting day!
Love this shot at my farm in Indiana. My favorite bike and Sheba following.
Didn't like any of the stylist's outfits. Pulled this dress from my own closet.
This shoot brought me to Santa Barbara for the first time. I fell in love with the town and stayed!
Had a blinding headache and heart palpitations this whole shoot. Couldn't wait to put that brush down.
Had to shoot this right after Sept. 11—smiling wasn't easy.
The hardest cover to shoot and Oprah's all-time favorite
I love, love, love, this hat! The editor and apparently our readers did not.
Hardest cover of all to shoot. Trying to hit the mark for the camera. My horse was camera shy.
This photo represents how I see myself.
Don't know who this is...And what is she wearing?
May be my all-time favorite cover: On the beach, with Matthew Rolston's crew following me with heaters.
This was the last shot of the day on my way out the door. Cliff Watts said, "Let's try natural light."
Oprah's "Martha Washington" hairdo and Michelle Obama
I liked this one. No smile for a change.
Family photo, my backyard. Loved this day.
I call this my "Martha Washington do". Never to be repeated!
This was almost as fun as it looks! Was listening to the Clark Sisters!
No. I'm not praying here.
My favorite thing about this shoot—those shoes.
