all these poses...


I tend to be pretty simplistic in my poses on my blog - especially if someone else is acting as photographer! In that case it is really shyness more than laziness but even when I am taking self-portraits often when I try to pose it can come out looking forced. There are exceptions and if I am in a particularly experimental mood (or bored) I can be found dancing around in my garden trying to capture the silliness. I suppose that's where these photos come in. A lot of times these moods have everything to do with what I'm wearing; the fabric, how it moves, etc. I loved photographing this dress because of it's structured skirt and embroidered fabric. This was actually my birthday dress from last year (thanks, mama!) but I felt like wearing something fun to work today and this is what my tired paws reached for at 9am!

 

speaking of posing...

That is what I love most about taking my own photos. I look like a total awkward nerd when someone else takes my photos. I love these! Your best yet. And your dress is gorgeous!

YOU are so sweet! And I agree about other people and photo-taking - Of course, it depends on the photog but more often than not I look like... @_o

Oh yeah, I agree. Half the reason I never post outfits is because I feel so awkward posing! But that first pic turned out perfectly, and the dress is fantastic. If I could just DANCE through a photo shoot, I'd be a happy camper. :D
