Anyway, the final results weren't really anything to write home about but I liked them and felt comfortable, which is more than I can say about how I am in front of a camera. I'm a pretty awkward person anyway (I may have to write a post about this soon because it's all too true) but I am really unhappy with my profile (ugh) and candid photos of me all look like I was just overdosed on Vitamin H (for hideous) so really the only thing we're gonna get that's good is a straight-on, smiling shot. All those cool, artsy poses where the couples look dramatically off at some distant object? Or seductively at each other? Not happening for the McNeeses. Jolly and plain is our photography style. Good thing our friend Juli who took these pictures still managed to get some beautiful shots with, let's face it, very little material to work with from me. =)
I'm not begging for compliments... I really do look genuinely awful in profile or candid pictures. THESE shots, though, that fall into my acceptable criteria, I really do like. =)
Outfit details for those who care:
Dress: Target (sooo old)
Top and Skirt: Loft
Scarf: Old Navy (seriously such a good investment!)
Boots: Nine West from Macy's
And... my favorite =)
He's adorable. I know.
Of course, I agonized over what to wear without thinking that it might not be a good idea to curl my frizz-prone hair on a drizzly, rainy day where it would quickly fall into one massive wave but hey... "we can't all be acupuncturists!" (Mulan? Anybody?)
So now you know that I'm terribly, obnoxiously indecisive about clothing and that if you take a candid picture of me and post it on Facebook I will mostly like, in a very sweet tone, tell you to remove it before I break your legs. =) A very educational post, right? I am a teacher, after all.
