Being a blogger is great, but it comes with it's challenges. Perhaps the biggest challenge is finding someone who will take your pictures for fashion posts (without complaining or being embarrassed.) I often get asked who takes my pictures and I'm here to tell you today! When I am in California, I've trained my dad to use the camera. When I'm here in Michigan, my boyfriend gets stuck with this non-paying job. They are both great photographers, but what you don't know is that they are also great models!
What you see here on the blog are pretty pictures of my outfits, but what you don't see are the pictures I have to take of my dad and McCann before they take the pictures of me. In order to get the light and frame set up, my "photographer" has to stand in the shot for me while I get things ready to go. It's funny how they evolved since starting to help me with these photos. At first, both were embarrassed that we had to take pictures in public and just stood there, not looking at the camera. And now...well, now you can see for yourself below. They are quite bold in their posing ;) I guess they figured they would have fun while I "test the light" on them!
For everyone's enjoyment, I give you The Makings of a Fashion Post:
My favorite? Definitely the one of my dad with the balloons on the railroad tracks. In second place would be the one of my dad in his biking outfit and water shoes. That's what happens when I ask him to quickly take some pictures of me before his Sunday bike ride and he doesn't have shoes on yet. He ran to get the closest pair, and unfortunately,
Black Dress & Balloons
Blue Pants & Chevron Top
Gray Coat & Black Boots
Black Coat, Hat & Booties
Floral Pants & Sweater
I thought we could all use a good laugh this Friday, so there you have it. At the expense of my dad and boyfriend, you're welcome.
