Be My Valentine OOTD Bloopers

Hello everyone and welcome to the blooper reel for my Be My Valentine OOTD! Today, we are going to take a look at the shots that didn’t make the first cut but are worthy of being shared anyways for humor’s sake. Also, did anyone notice that my usual brick wall that doubles as a bathroom at a park wasn’t featured in this look? That’s right, because we used a brick wall at another park instead lol. It wasn’t a bathroom, unfortunately, but sometimes you just have to roll with the punches! Now, let’s get to it:

Hey, gang! Who’s ready to look at some bloopers?!

Johnny is always making me laugh! I actually kind of like these pictures. โค

As you can see, a new brick wall just brings out the best for your girl lol. When it’s warm out, you can always catch me at more fun locations taking pics. During the wintertime, however, is a totally different story because I share Johnny’s sentiments of “are we done yet?”. Therefore, the brick wall method is employed for maximum picture taking efficiency in three easy steps:

  1. Acquire brick wall
  2. Take pictures for five minutes
  3. Leave

Lol – no muss, no fuss, just wall! Granted, it was a scorching forty degrees when these pictures were taken so it wasn’t all that bad but you get my point. The wall method is also great when you are working with a time crunch, which Johnny and I kind of were. This photo shoot was a win/win because the gorgeous shots you see above now exist AND I found a new brick wall to post up by. GREAT SUCCESS!

What is your favorite background for taking pictures? How does the weather affect your OOTD shoots? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

Feeling Flowery OOTD Bloopers

Hello everyone and welcome to the blooper reel from my Feeling Flowery OOTD! Today, we will be taking a look at the shots where I am looking… Less than my best lol. You’ve seen the limited amount of good from this shoot yesterday so let’s get onto the bad and the yikes so we can all share a laugh. It will be a HOOT, I promise:

Squinting because I can’t see the haters

I LOOK GREAT!!!!!!!!!

image_50419713(5)

Lol, I don’t know if it was the heels or how cold it was when we took pictures but I couldn’t get my balance during this photo shoot to save my own life. Let’s just say it was a combination of both because every time that foot popped up, I was shaking like a leaf! There are so many pictures that Johnny took in this collection that are literally just me tripping up, shaking it off, and trying to recover with another terrible photo haha. They can’t all be winners!

Despite the cold and taking pictures in front of a bathroom (Which was fully intentional – you know I love a brick wall!), we still managed to get some salvageable shots in this five minute rapid fire session. Granted, the majority may have been bloopers – I only had six winners in yesterday’s post. But all is fair in love and OOTDs and and I’ll take what I can get. The good, the bad, and the “why would you post that?” alike!

Would you rather be really hot or really cold? Do you delete photos from your phone often? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

Comfy Cozy Thxgiving OOTD Bloopers

Hello everyone and welcome to the blooper reel from my Comfy Cozy Thxgiving OOTD! For three Thanksgivings, I served three separate looks and now it’s time to check out the pics that most definitely didn’t make the first cut. This post is part bloopers and part story time because somehow while Johnny was snapping pics, something reminded me of one of the lamest things my bestie and I did in high school and I had to tell him all about it. Naturally, I had no idea he was taking my pictures throughout this lengthy tale but now I get to share them with all of you! Check it out:

I LOOK GREAT!!!!

STORY TIME… And realizing it was all captured by my loving husband lol

image_50436353(2)image_50740481(2)image_50742529image_50450945(3)image_50459137(6)

I can not remember for the life of me what brought upon this manifesto of a high school aged bestie and I but apparently I really needed to tell Johnny about it for the fifth time. I’m sure all of you knew a girl in high school who stuffed her bra with tissue or toilet paper but have you ever heard of anyone who used the same method for their butt? We did! In high school, there was this girl who stuffed her butt and it was not just a rumor – there was evidence to back it up. From tissue sticking out of her pants to her butt deflating after each class period, she was not fooling anyone and literally the whole school knew about it.

For shits and gigs, my best friend and I would pay homage to this person by stuffing our butts Every. Single. Time. we hung out. Needless to say, we went through a ton of toilet paper at our parents’ houses during our high school years. Was this a necessary thing to do? Absolutely not. Was it hilarious to us? ABSOLUTELY. We were like women possessed and our hangouts just didn’t feel right without it. It was, honestly, the dumbest thing but it still cracks me up to this day. In fact, if you look at the fourth image down, I’m pretty sure I’m about to say “butt” lol. Hey, what’s being in high school without doing the stupidest stuff ever?! Good times.

Am I particularly proud of this story? I mean… kind of lol I guess we just had to match the utter ridiculousness of the situation with some ridiculousness of our own. And now we can all share a laugh on the blogosphere fourteen years later! ๐Ÿ˜€

What is one of the dumbest things you did in high school? How about one of the dumbest things you did as an adult? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

Pumpkin Patch Party OOTD Bloopers

Hello everyone and welcome to the blooper reel from my Pumpkin Patch Party OOTD! While I love to show off the great pictures from an OOTD shoot, part of me likes posting the bloopers even more because it humors me. I am a firm believer in the phrase “waste not, want not” and I suppose that applies to terrible pictures, as well! Lol, check them out in all of their glory:

GREAT SUCCESS to the kid who was making monster noises at the pumpkin patch!!

image_50418945(2)image_50443265(4)

As you all know, Johnny takes what feels like a thousand pictures in under ten minutes per OOTD shoot. Sometimes, I am model level WERKING and the bloopers are minimal. Other times, it feels like a majority of the shots taken are bloopers! It is such a mixed bag and the Pumpkin Patch Party outfit gave me a solid half winners and half total losers lol. Either way, it makes for a good time going through the end results. ๐Ÿ˜€

Johnny’s proudest picture from our time at Heritage Farms was, easily, the leaf on my butt. Once I pointed it out to him, he spent about ten minutes looking at it, laughing, and then repeating the process. He also made it a point to zoom in on this faux pas to really show off his handiwork. He claims he “didn’t notice it at all” but I am thinking otherwise *Face palm*. Regardless, he is the best blog husband so I can’t be too mad. โค ๐Ÿ˜‰

It is a breath of fresh air to poke some good old fashioned fun at myself after talking up an outfit and pictures. Remember, for every good pic an influencer posts, there are probably twenty like the ones you see above!

Hello everyone and welcome to the blooper reel from my Summer In Fall OOTD! We are stepping into year eight of lifewithlilred with my goal in mind of lots more OOTDs so I hope that you are all ready for some fashion fun. Today, we are going to take a look at what didn’t make the cut during my last hurrah for summer shoot. Then, it is back to all of the fall fashion! Let’s get to it:

As always, I have no idea what I’m doing

Lol, what a HOOT! There is nothing better than a good ol’ blooper reel to make me laugh and these posts are, honestly, so refreshing to make. After taking pictures with Johnny, it might take me upwards of an hour to sort through the millions of pictures he has snapped. During that time, I am looking for the “perfect” pictures while weeding out the ones that aren’t up to snuff. You know, the ones where the lighting is just right, your face is pretty, body looks awesome, and the outfit shines. It’s enough to drive anyone crazy and it’s easy to start scrutinizing every single shot.

With the bloopers post, it’s so different because my mindset changes drastically. With a snap of the fingers I go from “wow, I’m working it” to “wow, I look terrible… perfect!” And that’s okay! For bloopers, the cringier the better and I have no shame in it. I am a huge believer in being able to poke fun at yourself and showing my entire photo taking process along the way. The good, the bad, and the:

Thankful For Bloopers

Thankful For Bloopers

Hello!! I don’t know about all of you, but when it comes to pictures on my phone, I am basically a hoarder. I never delete anything and never really thought about it until taking pictures for my New Hair, Who Dis? OOTD. While Johnny was snapping away at one last location, he said “Oh no” and I thought that someone might have been in the shot. Rather, every influencer’s nightmare came true when he told me my phone was out of memory. It had me feeling pretty much like this:

image_50397185(3)

Thankfully, this breach in storage happened at the end of the photo shoot and I knew that I would have to have a major deleting session. At first, the delete-athon was fairly easy because duplicates and screen shots of things that I would never buy was a good place to start. However, it just wasn’t good enough. So, I began to delete apps that I never used and that helped moderately but not enough too.

I realized that I would have to start deleting pictures with a less discerning eye and began the process of deleting blooper OOTD shots. And, in that moment, I was SO. Freaking. Glad. that I began the blooper reel segment from my OOTDs this past January. Without posting these shots that definitely didn’t make the cut, they would have been gone forever!

I truly do think that it is important to show what goes on behind every fabulous photo that I share in each OOTD post. I am far from perfect and unless you’re a professional super model, a lot of your shots are probably going to end up like this:

image_50401537(4)

^^^ Lol.

Not only do I think that these outtakes are encouraging for other bloggers, I also think that they are just hilarious. Johnny and I love to look back at the blooper shots and have a laugh and I hope that the same goes for all of you. It seemed like such a shame for no one to see this pure comedy gold and I think that it is refreshing when people poke some good old fashioned fun at themselves. It makes me feel like this:

image_50421249(4)

Although a majority of my bloopers are no more on my phone, they are here forever on lifewithlilred and that’s good enough for me. Long live the blooper reel!

New Hair, Who Dis? OOTD Bloopers

Hello everyone and welcome to the blooper reel from my New Hair, Who Dis? OOTD! I have had such a blast creating the bloopers for several of my past OOTDs and it is a relatively new segment on lifewithlilred. I have turned into a firm believer of sharing the entire photo taking process of an influencer because for every awesome shot there are probably twenty bad ones! The blooper reel is a true testament to that:

Johnny was cracking me up with an incredibly bad Alex Jones impression

If you’re new to the OOTD picture world and a majority of your shots look like the above, that is okay! I remember some of my first OOTD shoots and I was like “yikes” when looking through them afterwards. Practice really does make perfect, though, and you will get more comfortable the more you get in front of the camera.

I used to think that practicing my posing and facial expressions in the mirror was something only contestants on America’s Next Top Model did – but it really does work! Before every shoot, I spend some time in front of my full length mirror practicing different angles, movements, and expressions. With my little study session beforehand, I can take everything that is still fresh in my mind and apply it to my pictures. That’s how I end up with something like these and not any of the above lol:

image_50373889(2)image_50419201(4)

That does it for my New Hair, Who Dis? OOTD and I hope that all of you enjoyed it as much as I did. Tune in tomorrow for my eight year Blogiversary stroll down memory lane. We will also be discussing new recipes and more OOTDs later this week. Year nine of lifewithlilred is starting off with a bang!

How do you practice before getting in front of the camera? What are some of your modeling pro tips? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

Speaking of bloopers in picture form, my apartment is serving me a huge blooper too. I woke up this morning to find my entire kitchen leaking from the ceiling and am typing this as I wait for maintenance to grace me with their presence. Like, what even guys? Lol, I originally thought Johnny didn’t turn the sink off all of the way in the morning so you can imagine my surprise when the whole ceiling was raining!

As you can see, my morning is filled with blooper reel moments. One is hilarious and one just sucks! Here’s to everyone’s bloopers today being the fun kind and not the kind where you need an umbrella in your own home. Have a fabulous day, darlings! โค

A Stroll In The Garden OOTD Pt. 2 Bloopers

Hello everyone and welcome to the blooper reel from part two of my Stroll In The Garden OOTD series! When Johnny and I take blog pictures together, it takes roughly ten minutes. In that time, he literally does not stop taking pictures and that’s a good thing! This gives me a considerable amount of great, good, and yikes shots to sort through. I’ll be the first to admit that it’s a bit time consuming but us bloggers do anything in the name of content! Here are the shots that definitely didn’t make the original cut – Until now, that is:

Johnny is always making me laugh!

image_50411777(2)image_50420993(2)

Johnny has been assisting me with my OOTD shoots for well over a year and the process truly runs like a fine tuned machine now. Prior to developing his own method of rapid fire shooting, taking pictures used to take way longer. He used to take a few shots, show me, then try again. Now, it’s more like he takes fifty shots in a row, I take a quick look, and we move onto the next thing.

I am a huge fan of this method for many reasons. The most important one being that I usually don’t get hit with the “are we done yet?” until we’re about to wrap up lol! And, of course, it gives me a plethora of options to use that just weren’t possible before Johnny’s PPM (Pictures per minute) wasn’t twenty or so. He finally understands what I mean when I say “take a lot of pictures” and I am so appreciative and thankful for it!

The rapid fire method is obviously liable to lots of bloopers but it sure is fun to share them with all of you. Keep it posted for a Date Night OOTD soon!

Hello and welcome to the final segment of my White Hot OOTD – the blooper reel! When Johnny takes my pictures, he snaps away to make sure I have lots of options to pick from. These photos range from the good, the bad, and the yikes but that’s okay because it’s all part of the photo shoot process. Any influencer will tell you so! Take a look at some of the yikes that definitely didn’t make the cut… Until now that is!

When I first started doing OOTD shoots, I would delete the bad pictures immediately and never gave it a second thought. Now, I do the polar opposite. Bad pictures teach us what not to do the next time around and, if nothing else, they provide me and Johnny with a good laugh. I hope this blooper reel does the same for you! ๐Ÿ˜€
