working on conquering the fear of the camera

So last week as I was rummaging through some store, I ran across this amazing dress that was originally $400, marked down to $15. And I fell in love with it because the fabric is amazing. It felt like I was wearing a cloud.

So then I had this amazing dress, and I wanted to wear it for SOMETHING. Normally my response to this is "I'll do a photo shoot!" Well, this is one time when I didn't want to put the dress on someone else; I wanted to wear it myself! Have I mentioned that my husband is an extremely talented photographer? (We shoot weddings together, and all, and he's much more proficient on the technical side than I am.) Well, he's been wanting to do a photo shoot of me, but my extreme camera hatred has kept that from happening, so I decided that this would be the excuse. So last night I fixed my hair, my sister did my makeup, I threw on the dress, and we headed down to one of my current favorite shooting locations.

And may I just say: le husband is a very. good. photographer.






















Things we learned from this photoshoot: there is no half smile with me. It's either full-on grin, or serious Blue Steel. Also: I cannot look sexy on command. Every time I try, I just look pained. It's tragic. Also: I'm not allergic to being in front of cameras! Yay!
