This picture sums up everything in my brain when taking pictures for this blog. All kinds of awkward.
I love this picture for how honestly it depicts my emotions. Someone drove up while David was snapping these and this was my immediate reaction.
I have always been uncomfortable with taking posed pictures. It’s awkward. You are trying to look perfect while not looking staged. It’s pretty much ridiculous. Every time I go out to have David take pictures of me, I am constantly replaying Tom Haverford’s words in my head of “Fix your face!” (Parks & Recreation reference, if you don’t watch it, start.)
In general, I prefer candid photos. In honor of this, I am sharing with you some of my favorite real shots from these photo shoots. I was inspired by a fellow blogger, Jana at Life Could Be a Dream, who shares her bloopers every once in a while, as well.
And now for the hair whipping extravaganza!
I tend to start doing weird dance moves during photo shoots. I’m not really sure why, it just happens.
This shoot in particular just produced a lot of gems. Maybe it was the wasp venom, or maybe it was just me being me. Whatever it was, I hope you appreciate them.
I hope you enjoyed these pictures of awkwardness personified. Let me know what your thoughts on picture taking are in the comments below!
