Stage Fright

04 April 2012

I have been very excited about this wall. 
I love the primary colors and the design (a huge cornucopia of food), but there is one thing that has kept me away. It's on the side of our neighborhood grocery store, right in the middle of a little shopping square. Now, I am not a shy person by any means. But I really do hate having my photo taken. I hate it even more when people watch. So this place is primed with onlookers, and I was beyond antsy having Micah take these.
I kept pretending to not be the one having her photo made (because soooo many people stand in grocery store parking lots in skirts and heels at 11am with a photographer following them...) and would turn and pretend to look at the mural if someone happened to walk by.

There are actually around 45 photos of me here, but most of them look like I'm on the run and I'm giving someone off camera crazy eyes, so these will have to do.

  1. Love the wedges and the belt! :) And I feel your pain in regards to having your picture taken and having people watching. It can be quite awkward, but I think you did a lovely job! xoxo, morgan

    1. Oh thank you! It's one thing if they're engagement photos or bridals, where you have a reason to be posing, but I feel like such a goof modeling in the parking lot of our grocery store!

    1. Haha exactly! I would say 'Take a picture, it'll last longer' but I'm kind of already doing that... :)

  3. That mural made for such a cool background! I love the striped belt combined with the floral skirt! I also hate taking photos with lots of people around but I'm trying to get over that so I can get more variety in my backgrounds. :)

    1. Thanks! Yeah, it just takes a little confidence (or a couple of shots) to stand in front of people and have a bunch of photos taken!

    1. Haha I'll get over it. I just have to make myself pretend they're not there. Heck, maybe one day I'll call some gawker over and get a picture with them!

    1. Aw thank you! I know, I try to run for the hills as soon as I see someone coming. I think me running in wedges is more embarrassing than just getting the photo.

    1. Thank you! Yeah, I get antsy, and once my antsy face is on, it's hard for me to want to finish. I'm just ready to roll!

  11. Super cute outfit! That's such a pretty skirt. I hate when people watch me take my photos. I guarantee 95% of them don't even know what style blogs are. :P
