It has been raining and miserable this whole week so far. Yuck! It doesn’t really allow for picture taking outside. I am not a great photographer. I usually get Kev to take my photos, but I have been taking them more and more over the last few months. You can always tell when Kev takes them or when I take them. His are always way nicer. I am always crisp and in focus and the background always has a nice blur. When I take them I am usually up against a wall so I can focus easily, set the self timer and jump in the pictures. Things are always slightly out of focus. haha I am trying. I think I am getting a little better, but my saving grace is that I can take them outside in natural light. The winter is fast approaching and its making me nervous because before I would grin and bare the freezing cold to take some pictures, but I can’t do that to Rowan. So, I am trying to figure out how to take pictures inside. We have super high ceilings (like 14 feet) so bouncing a flash doesn’t really do anything. We do have some super tall windows, so I tried playing around with them today. I think for my first try they aren’t so bad. I need Kev to give me some lessons though.
I pretty much love this outfit. I feel so lady like with a full, softly pleated tweed skirt, high bun, socks and oxfords. I even put on some lipstick. It feels good to get dressed up for your day. Even if its only to fold laundry, play with Rowan and chit chat with my Kitties.
