For Valentine's Day, Rye Bread cleaned the broken table that blocked my favorite backdrop for all of my pictures - that brick wall. Well, I don't know if it was actually for Valentine's Day or not, but I counted it as so (I think he got off easy).
I get asked a lot if Rye takes my pictures or if I use a tripod. The answer is both depending on time & day; but there are definitely some pros & cons to having Rye take my pictures:
+ He gets great angles (aka: makes my legs look long)
+ He can take close-up shots of my shoes
+ I don't look creepers taking pictures of myself, setting the timer & running into focus
+ It's hard for me to make "serious" face at him or look away
+ I feel somewhat rushed ("ARE THESE GOOD ENOUGH?!")
+ People think he paid me to be a "model" (gross)
But a big pro when we're taking pictures in the backyard is that he's able to CONTROL THE DOGS. By myself, the dogs LOVE to sit on my feet while I'm standing still for longer than 3 seconds. This makes it impossible to get them out of my shots...if you can't beat them, join them!
I got this skirt from Nordstrom Rack for $7.99! WHAT! It was $22 then on clearance then an additional 60% off. Even if it is a bit of a snooze fest, it's a great work skirt. The belt I'm pairing it with actually belongs to the Gillian Dress from PMN.
