Hello everyone and welcome to the blooper reel from my Husband’s Shirt Alert OOTD! When Johnny takes my pictures, he shoots in rapid succession and leaves me with hundreds of pictures to sort through. This is both a blessing and a curse because god knows I love having twenty of one picture that all look the same, but my memory on my phone fills up rather quickly! This is exactly what happened while taking these pictures and there is nothing worse than hearing Johnny say that I am out of memory.
My sweet angel husband assumed we were done with pictures after this mishap and headed inside. Meanwhile, I stayed out and did a quick mass delete session. Once memory was available, my darling Johnny came back out and took up his role as photographer again. These bloopers of me looking my absolute best go out to him, as they wouldn’t be possible without the most wonderful blog husband on planet Earth!
Lol, this is the very first picture that Johnny took so obviously this photo shoot was gonna be full of winners
This was the second picture that was taken and it is me silently willing myself to get it together!
Johnny always is making me laugh! ❤
This next segment is called “attempting to stand on my toes”. We begin with trying to hoist myself up into position…
Not ready to be free of the training wheels just yet
I’m doing it!! I’m doing it!!!
This is the face of a champion! GREAT SUCCESS!
GIVE ME BACK MY PHOOOOOOONE
My intention with the blooper posts from OOTD shoots is for people to gain insight into the process and, of course, have some fun. It’s so easy to think that influencers and content creators snap one picture and BOOM it’s absolutely perfect. However, that’s just not true lol and the very first picture that Johnny took is a testament to that. Not every pose is going to work, either, and that’s fine. Chances were slim that we were going to get an amazing toe standing shot, but at least I tried – and that’s what’s important!
I love being in front of the camera and having my picture taken in outfits that make me feel good makes me feel good. I am lucky because my husband takes my pictures and he gives me the confidence to try different poses or expressions and not take it too seriously. This is also my best piece of advice for when you’re taking pictures of your own. Getting your picture taken is only as fun as you make it so throw caution to the wind and go for it. Attempting to get a perfect shot with every frame is only going to make you look stiff and stressed. Don’t be afraid of the bloopers – embrace them! The magic happens when you are in the moment and fully enjoying yourself. That is when you will find the sweet spot where all of the pictures are uniquely and beautifully you. ❤
Huge shout out to my blog husband, Johnny, for making me laugh, taking my pictures, and letting me wear his clothes! lifewithlilred would be nothing without you!
Would you consider yourself to be camera shy? What do and don’t you like about having your picture taken? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
