The other day, I got a package that I was seriously so excited about. One of my lovely sponsors, Leilani of Soleil Selene, who I had the pleasure of meeting back in March sent me one of her Aqua Rosette Necklaces from her fabulous shop.
It is absolutely beautiful and really high quality (i.e. sturdy
enough for 5ohBaby to try to yank it off of me without it even budging once.) I have been looking for a aqua necklace for a looooooong time and I was just too darn excited to have this beauty. It is the perfect length and the 7 Rosettes really make this necklace stand out. I immediately ran out to take pictures using the tripod 5ohHubby got me for mother's day which was his very sweet way of saying "I'm done being a fashion photographer".
As I was shooting on my porch I realized that there wasnt enough distance between me and my tripod to fully capture the whole outfit s
ince that is obviously important?? so I decided to put the tripod in the street and take pics in front of my house. I knew that I would be able to fully capture the outfit.
And I did. Just not the way I had imagined.
I was so excited to be using my tripod that I never stopped to see if I was fully in the frame until I had shot a bunch of pictures. I cropped part of my head off in every.single.one.
Apparently, I have a lot to learn about tripod pictures. Sorry to have shamed you, Nina.
I decided the next best thing was to try a bunch of sitting or crouching shots.
Equally as awkward but at least I could fit my whole self in frame.
Well, I guess this confirms it. I will never have a popular fashion blog.
Did you say give away that gorgeous necklace
ok not the one i'm wearing but the same exact one to one lucky reader?
My thoughts exactly!
Well, actually, I can take no credit for it. It's all Leilani.
