I don't very often ask hubby to take photos of me in my outfits. I always feel a little self concious and I'm not always happy with the results, so I usually stick with the trusty self timer. At least that way I feel I'm not inconveniencing someone! Taking photos with self timer is fine.. It's not so tricky. What is tricky is trying to do it with a nosy three year old in the house who has to be with you at all times. Let me present you with the evidence.
These are the photos I took of my outfit the other day.. Enjoy!
|Oi! Move it!|
|OK, I'm just going to roll with it.. Can you see me?|
|Phew.. managed to keep him out of this shot!|
|Oh! Hello, it's you again!|
|Ha! Can't get in this shot, can you?!!|
Tee - Primark (a while ago)
Jeans - GAP
Shoes - Clarks
Jacket - Boden
Beads - Mum's from the 70s
Broach - Local boutique
To be honest, I think he steals the show!! All moaning aside, I don't really mind Ethan sneaking into my shots. He just wants to join in, and it's not his fault he's so used to posing as soon as a camera appears. In over three years I can count on one hand the amount of days I haven't photographed him..
On to the outfit. This is one of my go-to outfits when I want something comfy and practical, but also stylish. The jeans and tee are simple and easy to wear, but the shoes and jewellery lift it out of "forgettable". My jacket cannot be ignored as well. I am a HUGE fan of Boden when it comes to jackets, this is my second of their gorgeous print jackets, it always brightens my day and was well worth the £90 I forked out for it. I think my favourite detail is my crochet broach. I'd love to say I made this myself, but I suck at needle/hook crafts of all kinds. I got it in a local boutique which you can read about here.
Do you have these problems when taking your style/outfit photos? I can't be the only one! Do you take your pics yourself or have an assistant? I don't think it'll be long until Ethan can take decent shots of me himself!
