The Blooper Moments of Blogging

Sazcribers


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!

  1. Lmao-I am the exact same way. My instagram boyfriend and I that shoots all my pics, we always argue during photo shoots because he says I always do the same pose hahaha. But I hate attention and unfortunately when you are in an area and shooting pics people can’t help but to stare.

  2. Sazan-I feel you girl! And I appreciate you giving us the real deal! Between the hair stuck on my lipgloss, the mix of summer heat and wind messing with my hair, and my husband always saying “I took enough” after 10 or so pics (really?!?), sometimes I rather just sit home and wish I could superimpose an outfit on myself! Ha! But in the end, I appreciate the work you and us bloggers put into it to inspire others. Thank you for being an inspiration and an awesome funny girl too! Loving your first hidden posts! Congrats! Muah! xo, Jessica thisseasonsgold.com

  3. That’s a good idea; now I will never miss your newsletters. <3
    I hate taking selfies or pictures. Cause I start to criticize myself a lot, and I get mad 🙁 .
    But you look awesome <3

  4. hahahaha this is great! I love how you’re keeping it real with us and sharing these not so picture perfect (but really, they are perff) moments!

  5. I am the type that I live for the moment and hate to take time to take pictures, even when my outfit is perfect. I also hate the awkwardness of people staring. However, I then regret not taking pics and having that memory. I wish I was more like those people that love to capture memories and snap pics of everything.

  6. This is so funny! I feel the same way when taking pictures. I live close to Chicago, and even though we always wanna take good pictures when we are there… it feels so uncomfortable to be in the middle of the street annoying people! Love this hidden post idea 🙂

  7. AHH! I love it! Srsly though.. when the lighting sucks it can ruin the ENTIRE shoot. As a travel and style blogger there is nothing worse than shooting a hotel or destination in bad lighting. Or when you’re shooting in a new location and you think you have *the perfect* look planned out but then you’re going through the pictures and think to yourself ” If I had worn this color it would have been so much better.” People think its easy… but in reality getting the perfect shot makes me want to poke my eyes out (sometimes).

  8. I went to San Fran on the same day you left LA and left a day before you. And my my! the struggle is real! It was windy and I wasn’t geared for it! But I ended up getting a hoodie and ALOT of hair ties to defy it.
    I’m happy to leave with funny memories of defying the wind with my friends… It was worth it. Your pictures are hilarious! I can totally relate.
    Cheers from Colorado

    1. Aw! Would have loved to bump into eachother. It’s always fun meeting my online fam. Maybe next time the wind will blow us right into eachother! Haha #ihadto

  9. Hands down the second ✌🏻️ Photograph is the best. Looks like you’re trying to channel “Groot” from Gardians of the Galaxy. Love the “behind the scenes”! Can’t wait to laugh at more.
    If you can have Stevie takes a few candids of the folks who stop and stare at you wondering what it is your doing.

  10. EEEKKKK!!!!! Thank you so much Sazan!!!! My best friend and I were jumping up and down!!! You are seriously amazing and you just inspire people in ways you don’t even know!!!!!! Thank you thank you!!!!

  11. Haha! Those made my morning! Shooting can be frustrating. My fav still has to be when the guy is photobombing and staring at you. Oh we love those moments! Wish we could have read his mind lol… Unless it was perverted. Gross!

    As for me, I’m more of a photographer then a model lol. My most frustrating part is that I just know I shouldn’t be in front of the camera for all to see lol! I may look confident but boy oh boy am I shhhhy!

    I love your videos, your seriously my friend and you don’t even know it ha! Ok maybe that sounded creepy but if you knew me lol…

    Thank you for not being afraid of showing the true side of blogging. It’s rare!
