how to take awkward pictures

Top: Kiki La 'Rue | Shorts: American Rag | Earrings: Ginger13 | Bracelets: 31Bits, Ginger13, LinzGutz

1. Ignore any advice on modeling
2. Take your pictures when you are really sleepy
3. Take your pictures in a really bright area so that it's hard not to squint
4. Fake your smile
5. (THIS ONE IS IMPORTANT!) Have your husband take the photos

That's it, folks. Pretty easy, huh?

OMG hahaha "have your husband take the photos". So true. My husband is awful at taking pictures - even with our amazing camera he still seems to fail terribly. Ugh. Your pics still look great though!

Tara St said...

Haha. This is how I feel about all my pictures. You should also add, "Have all your neighbors come outside and stare at you."

haha you crack me up! Probably because I picture it like the movies "ok CUT, take 2..." "ok CUT AGAIN, take 3..." ohhh that's funny. still very pretty though!
