    Thank you so much for his post! It is everything! I’ve been trying to get back into taking outfit shots and it’s so hard not to look stiff in front of a camera! These tips have been so helpful! x

    These are some great tips! I have grown so in love with photography and I mostly love taking thought out photos, like really artsy which my boyfriend helps me take (not always being extremely happy about it but I know he likes to see me succeed and in the end he’s pretty proud of the photos that turn out good so!) which I also get inspiration for from Pinterest (what CAN’T you use Pinterest for?)!

    Great tips! As a photographer myself, it’s so important to communicate the vision you have with your photographer. Maybe have a mood board or an inspiration board in terms of environment, lighting, angles, and poses.

      Thank you! Ahhh awesome, I’ve always gone with a inspiration board even if I don’t know location or purpose yet but it’s so so helpful! xx

    I’d love to see you do a post on how you teach other people to get photos for you! My boyfriend tries and we do sometimes get a good shot but I’m trying to get better and more confident getting pictures of myself for my blog – so that post would be so helpful haha! Your photos are always so stunning!! Xx
