Outtakes: Volume One
The last couple of photo shoots around here have been rather dramatic (thunderstorms, moviestars, lady spies, Jane-Austen-like flower gathering), but lest you get the wrong idea and think that things are always staid and serious and elegant, I thought I would share some outtakes. Believe me: the photo shoots on this blog are the furthest thing from serious most of the time.
My sister takes a lot of the outfit photos for me, and she is great at it too, but really the best thing about having her take the pictures is that it gives us some time spent together goofing off and being silly and just having fun together. She is really great at just clicking away and capturing all sorts of hilarious moments. I’ve gathered quite a few, since starting this blog, and some of these photos are just so funny, I couldn’t keep them to myself. So, in case you get the idea that I go around like some glamorous vintage model all the time- um -nope- it’s just me, being silly, and here’s the proof.
Do you think that they have silly outtakes on professional photoshoots? Or do you think they remain serious and on task the entire time? I wonder. . . 🙂 Do you have silly outtakes?

After many failed attempts to emulate the graceful moves of a ballerina, I realized that I am not a ballerina. . .
I had read about trick photography, where you jump with your feet flat, to look like you are floating. I couldn’t resist holding the umbrella to give a Mary Poppins look. I just crack up every time I see this picture. And I promise that I was not actually crabby in the picture on the right, though I look like it. . .
Such silly faces to pair with such tailored outfits. . .

These are awesome pictures – your sister does a great job as your photographer! I rarely have outtakes/silly pictures (I use a timer, and I’m usually pressed for time), but maybe I should??

Maybe it’s just me! I get outtakes even with a timer 🙁 haha! Outtakes are pretty funny though. If you set your camera in “burst” mode, where it takes multiple photos each time you pressed the shutter, you might get some? It would be fun to see!

These are the greatest. 🙂 I just recently stumbled across your blog, but I love your style and blog vibes. The peachy dress is a perfect dream and the sailor blouse outfit looks so comfortable!

Haaa ha ha, Nicole this is so great! I have sooo many out-take shots which have never seen the light of day. Often my worst/funniest ones are when I don’t know the picture has been taken, so I’m waiting with an awful squinty moody face! I’m sure everyone that has ever had their picture taken has loads of out-takes, trust me you are not alone! I love the flat feet jump, it looks ace! 🙂 xxx

Oh yes- the “squinty face”. I am very familiar with that one 🙂 I kind of like the fact that with digital we can take enough photos to make sure we get at least one good one, and then can laugh at all the others. Back in the days of film it was one chance!

Your outtakes are so cute! Love these photos, and love that you broke the wall, so to speak, by posting them. Your silly faces are cracking me up.

Thanks Jessica. I couldn’t be the only one to laugh at myself, now could I? 😉 I’m glad you liked them too!

These are adorable! I love that people have been doing outtake posts!! I have yet to do it, but it is such a wonderful reminder that bloggers are just like everyone else!
I would hope that professional shoots have funny outtakes!
August 20, 2016 @ 9:42 pm
We are real people! Haha. It would be fun to see some of yours 🙂
I hope that professionals have funny outtakes! Although, I doubt we will never see them published. . . too bad!

Hilarious outakes!!! I love the Mary Poppin picture!
August 20, 2016 @ 9:44 pm
That Mary Poppin’s picture is what impelled me to do this post. 🙂 I ran across it again, the other day, and I just couldn’t not share it!
August 20, 2016 @ 9:52 pm
Hahaha These are great! Looking forward to Volume Two… 😉

Heehee! You know there will be more 😉
