Blooper Reel ›› Take Two

4.27.2014
I'm the queen of bloopers. (See Blooper Reel Take One). There is not a single "fashion" post that goes by that I don't goof it up. I'm always surprised I end up with a few good pictures after a photo-shoot. Even though it's usually a 5 out of 55 ratio, I still call that a win! I am either completely not in the mood or I'm way too giggly because I feel too awkward to focus.

I also have way too many stipulations when it comes to taking pictures. 

›› One. It has to be a private place where no cars or people will travel by.
›› Two. It has to be warm.
›› Three. I have to like my scenery/surroundings.
›› Four. I must have a prop or I feel insecure. 
›› Five. I must be fed or I'll be a grouch.

Poor hubs. I don't know how or why he puts up with me.
This is what happens when we take pictures before lunch. Remember rule #5?

Must you capture the sneeze?
Is this how the models flip their hair and look sexy? #winning.
I think I'm allergic to hay. No seriously, I'm allergic to hay.
If we don't quit soon I will throw a tempter tantrum. Too late.

That's a cute face... said no one ever.
Smearing mascara and causing wrinkles may be a side effect of a photo-shoot.
What angle not to use.
Remember what I said about props... When in doubt steal the neighbors dog.
I am in the process of writing a fashion book so when I get that process wrapped up I will let you know.

  1. Dying, you crack me up. I love it! The "I'll promise to tell you if a train is coming" is so Dustin and I, and stealing the neighbors dog haha! Thanks for sharing your bloopers :)

  2. Haha, too cute, you still look adorable in every picture! I always tell myself when I see fashion posts that it must not be easy taking all of these pictures. I'm sure I'd look supremely awkward!

  3. You're not the only one! I'm still getting the hang of taking these "fashion" photos...and let's just say it turns out I'm not the most photogenic person ever. I'd thought about doing a bloopers post too but haven't been brave enough to haha Thanks for sharing yours!

  8. I'm so insecure when it's just me in a picture....totally understand the need for props and no one around! I can't stop laughing at myself when other people are around. Love that heart sweater!

  9. Haha! Loved this! I've thought about doing some fashion/outfit posts but I don't know if I have it in me to take the pictures! Pretty sure they would be 100% bloopers :) You still look amazing!

  10. Hah this is great. You seriously look like Blake Lively though, so despite the occasional hunger pangs and hay allergy, I'd vote winning!

  14. hahaha I love it! This is so M and me during ours- it is clearly not his favorite thing to do. I mean, I've had to start bribing him with froyo. I feel you on the outtakes- so MANY! Love this :)

  15. These are hilarious! And OH NO about the hay thing. That must have been really uncomfortable afterwards...

  16. Hahaha I just love you! Some definitely made me laugh, but you are a beauty in all. Love the attitude!

  17. Hehe! Your stipulations sound a lot like mine. Especially taking photos somewhere somewhat private. It always feels too awkward when people walk by and you can see on their faces that they are wondering why the heck you are taking pictures. I love these. Even when you look silly you are just adorable. :)

  18. Despite it all....your photos are beautiful and I admire you! You come across as so self assured! I gain so much inspiration!
