Location, Location, Location

So, everyone getting tired of my foyer yet? I hope not, because I'm usually in such a hurry in the morning that the familiar set-up of camera by the stairs/zoom in on these parameters/use these settings is all I have time for most days. And let's be honest, even if I did have more time, where else am I going to take my pictures? My kitchen is generally a mess. My family room lacks proper lighting.

My bedroom?

Nope. Because the mess and the poor lighting will follow me there, with the added con of my husband laughing at me (in the most supportive way possible, of course) while I try to set up the shot.


Ha! I live in a lovely neighborhood, where my neighbors are super friendly and everybody leaves for work at the same time and we all smile at each other while we let the dogs out before the day starts. I am not subjecting these poor people to the early morning experience of me running back and forth from camera to picture spot, setting things up, checking my hair, adjusting my skirt, etc. And there is nowhere in my yard where that can be avoided.

So foyer it is. At least until I become as motivated (and creative!) as Kimmie, anyway...

(Ah, forget motivation and creativity. Maybe I'll just invest in one of those sweet back-drop rolls that they use at various department store photography studios instead...)

(Ha! You're totally imagining pictures of me standing in front of some sweet, fall-type leafy piece of canvas, aren't you?)

(How do I look?)

  1. I either stand in my foyer, use my work's bathroom, or the top level of a parking garage (only in warm weather though), so I'm sure people are tired of my backgrounds! But really, it's the outfits that we pay attention to, so keep using your foyer until you get tired of it. Especially for outfits like this, the colors look great against a white backdrop :)

  2. I LOVE this shade of blue on you- it's so beautiful! I totally have the SAME problem finding a pic location b/c of the nature of our house and the darkness outside. Hopefully we'll hit our stride soon!

    Monthly trip was def exaggerated but it seems like I've had to go about every other month for more and more procedures. So sick of it! Thanks for your kind words!

  3. ha! i've got seriously nosy neighbors and in the winter when there's no leaves on the trees it's even worse!

    anyway, that blue is a great shade!

  4. You look great! That blue looks pretty on you.

    I'm just lucky that I work close to some big touristy spots which is where I take most of my pictures. If I didn't, I'd probably take back yard photos everyday.

    Just like Cee said, the outfit is most important! :)

  5. @Cee - You're right about the outfits, I think. I don't even notice your backgrounds, really, because I love your style so much :)

    @Dotty - Yeah, in the summer there's one spot on my porch that I could squeeze into for pictures without my neighbors seeing, but right now, there's nothing...


Leave a comment, if you'd like...I'd love to hear from you!
