Blooper Reel

IMG_0703

There’s one thing I’ve learned over the past couple of years- you have to be able to laugh at yourself. I used to care SO MUCH what other people thought about me and at some point I just stopped caring. I know who I am and I’m happy with who I am. 

I’m goofy. 
I’m emotional.
I’m awkward.
I wear my heart on my sleeve.
I’m a bit clumsy.
I’m an awful driver. 
I’m a lover to my friends, my significant other and family. 
I’m a dreamer.
I’m a go getter and a hustler.

But, I’m not the best model. With having a blog there are photos. I could just write words all day but I’m pretty sure you visit each day for the photos too so I’ve tried to step up my game and actually be in FRONT of the camera a little. It’s been a long road since Chris took the first picture of me modeling jewelry last summer.

But I think I’ve come a long way since last year and getting better! However, for every good photo you see online there is an equally awkward one that I’ve saved for posts like this. But I love them! They make me laugh so hard!

I’m sharing some of them today in an effort to make YOU laugh and also because I’m feeling a little uninspired as of late. I’m hoping some warm weather will get my brain juices flowing! Happy Monday and Happy First Day of Spring!

    haha omg i have so many of these too, i just posted one on insta today! i have a pinterest board of “poses” that i try to look at. sometimes if b or i see a pose we really love, we’ll show the other one before taking pictures so we can get a little more “coaching!”

    • Megan

      That’s such a good idea to have a board with poses! I feel like that might be easier for Chris as my photographer too so he knows what I’m envisioning in my head and can help me achieve that!

    These may be awkward but I love them! You kinda look like Vanessa Bayer in a few, I feel like she is awkward 99% of the time. I also have a Pinterest board, like Rosemary, and then a album on my phone as well. I have a “poses” one, travel photo ideas, and then one for Enchanting Events as well. Thanks for the smile this Monday :)

      That’s such a good idea to have a board with inspiration. I do it for outfits so why not poses?

  • Katie Hutchinson

    I feel the same way half of the time! If I am around, I will be happy to help pose you. Looking at photos online is definitely my go-to as well. I go online to get outfit inspiration, and more! Love Pinterest. xox

    • Megan

      YES! We should do pictures together sometime!!!
