About ten minutes before leaving for David’s birthday dinner at my mom’s house, I decided to grow some balls and do a style shoot. I love clothes, accessories and fashion, but with all of my issues, I never thought that I should get in front of the camera. I have been challenging myself this summer, however, and it felt appropriate to at least try. I’m not satisfied with my body, but I adore getting dressed up and know that a little styling can greatly help the figure. The entire thing was as impromptu as it sounds…
We gathered up the things we needed for the party, and jumped in the car thinking we could find a better backdrop for the pictures. It started raining and David forgot my camera. We didn’t have anyplace in mind for shooting, and I was feeling a little incomplete in my styling. We ended up taking pictures in front of a Tom Thumb on the iPhone.
Needless to say I have a new-found respect for fashion bloggers. Here are the silly, blurry, awkward iPhone shots from my first attempt at a style shoot. Some of them made me laugh so hard I just had to share them.
PS. I will be making a second attempt as I am on a shopping hiatus and with most of my clothes in Houston I am trying to get inventive with the pieces I have. I will share what I learn as I go along. The first lesson I have learned is that I need to put some more planning into this process and not shout at the person kind enough to take the pictures. Sorry, David
