Hey SAZCRIBERS! This is my first hidden blog post I’m writing to you. First things first. The winner of my $700 summer swag bag giveaway is…..*drumroll please*….HANNAH BULT!! Look out for an email. 🙂 Thank you all for entering – there will be lots more giveaways every Friday so don’t be sad!! Please 🙂
I’m officially really excited about this newsletter feature! What better way to kick things off than with my first one being about the not-so-pretty side of blogging. I share my favorite photos and moments with you all the time across various platforms, but you never get to see the countless blooper moments that go on behind the scenes. I was in San Francisco last week when I couldn’t stop laughing at these photos Stevie attempted to take of me for the blog. We were trying so hard to shoot this with the pretty bay as the background but it was an absolute #FAIL. It was cold, windy and my ruffle top kept blowing everywhere (and so was my hair). Not to mention people kept staring at us wondering if there was a photoshoot going on (Steve’s lens is an attention grabber).
Here are some of the un-edited crazy moments from my latest shoot….
Which one is your personal favorite? ahahaahha Now if only you guys could see the bloopers when I’m recording a video. Perhaps I’ll save that for another hidden post.
Fun fact about me: I actually HATE shooting blog pictures. It’s my least favorite part about blogging. I feel like an annoying person who’s taking up space in the streets. LOL! It’s funny because you’d think I’m a pro since I’ve been doing this for 4 years now but nope – I still experience those days when I’m not into it, the lighting is being a brat, and the weather simply does not want to cooperate. There are those rare occasions though when the outfit is perfect and so is the weather and location we’re shooting at. Our record for the quickest time we’ve shot an outfit is 5 minutes!!! (we timed it)
Whether you’re a blogger or someone trying to take the perfect selfie on your phone – what is the most annoying challenge you’ve faced? I want to know!
Stay tuned on my blog to see how the actual pictures from this shoot turned out!
