Total Nerd Someties

I feel like a total nerd sometimes… I can discuss search engine optimization for hours but sit awkwardly quiet at the hairdressers. I am super punctual (one minute delay freaks me out) but arrived one hour late on the first date with my husband. I am awkward in front of the camera. My face is too narrow. My eyes are too wide apart. Ha, ha, maybe not so bad, but you get my point… but I desperately needed some portraits that capture my personality a little better. Photography is about building a brand they say… Brand ME. Ok then. I put on my favorite sweatshirt and jeans (that have a hole in the knee bigger every time I put them on) and do a few quick poses by the garage. These are just before I burst into laughter. Then I jumped in the car next to my hubby and headed to town.

    I laughed reading your post, perhaps we are somehow related!?

    I couldn’t agree more with awkward-hairdresser-silences and the need to be punctual!
    But, I couldn’t disagree more about the opinion of your appearance; I think you look beautiful!

    Keep up the amazing work, and breath taking photos! πŸ™‚

    I think awkward silences at the hairdresser comes with getting your hair done, there’s no way to avoid it!

    I hate having my picture taken, it makes me so self-conscious and my faults seems ten times worse. I don’t know how models do it day in, day out. I, too, would fall about in fits of giggles.

    Great phots.

      Yeah, it is so difficult to actually pose yourself. Me being a photographer, I know all the poses, but when I am supposed to do them myself, I get so nervous!

    Anytime I take photos they seem staged and awkward. That’s when I feel like a nerd! Then my fiancΓ© says “wait did you take these on your own?” …”yes”… But you look great! Nice post πŸ™‚

      I know! It takes a lot of practice to look natural. It sounds so easy but is so hard actually.

    Beautiful pictures. The lipstick colour suits you a lot. Which shade is it?

      I do little bit of highlights, one shade darker and one shade lighter, but i have naturally very blond hair. It just gives it that extra shine and pop of color. πŸ™‚

      Thanks Fatima, It is bright pink, my favourite color. Not sure about the brand though. Love your blog.

    I think it takes time to feel comfortable in front of the camera. You’re beautiful just do what makes you comfortable. Everyone’s a little quirky. Like the glasses btw!
