I was listening to a podcast the other day (ok, by this point it was a while ago…delayed posting and all that!), and it was an interview with a popular blogger. In her interview she made a comment along the lines of “Nobody wants to see a 49 style blogger!” 😳
Not going to lie. It kind of pissed me off. 😠
I was SUPER uncomfortable, self conscious, and felt totally narcissistic posting images of myself when we first started this blog. Ok, I still am, but I’m getting over it. You know why? I am SO unbelievably thankful that I have all these images of me with Maya, but also…just the images of just me (😬🙊🙈 ) .
The bottom line is that I love fashion. I am over apologizing for it. I’ve loved fashion since I was Maya’s age! AND….I’m guessing I’l love fashion in 6 years when I turn 49!
Her comment actually made me want to do more fashion posts!
Now…I just need more time!! This cozy cardigan? Handknit by my dad! He made it from himself, and then it was in one of their “donation bags” that I intercepted haha. SO GLAD-love it!! Her face!! DYING! Ok, I’m dying NOW! At the moment…well… My remote trigger had died, so taking these was with the self timer. And, I kept running back and forth and looking down…
Seeing this face wasn’t EXACTLY what I wanted to see, but now that…a month and a half (!!) has gone by…I LOVE IT!
It’s SO her. If it’s in any way posed…she’s NOT having it. That is why post of our images are fun/action based! A little harder when it’s a one shot deal with the self timer…I can’t believe I did ALL our images that way in the beginning!! Oh, but then….I wore her down!!!
As I do. And these next few are some of my FAVORITES of us!!
I’ve really been wanting to capture the golden hour more. I just didn’t have the time to take pics of us in the fall, because I was so busy with client shoots. The ONE bonus of the sun setting at 4:30, is that I can pictures of us in the golden hour in the afternoon! haha. LOOOOOVE!! She was trying to capture bugs that were flying in the sunlight! And lastly….singing. As she does.
Sweater- Handknit by my dad!
Overalls- Paige “Sierra” Overalls (eBay, similar here
Dress- J Khaki Kids (thrifted)
Keeping it Real…
A DOG!! MUST PET THE DOG!!
Which pretty much happened in between every shot, because we were on a path in a large park…
(all pictures taken with a self timer and tripod because my shutter release BROKE-WHA WHA!!), except ones of Maya :))
