Whenever I go to my parent’s house I try to take outfit photos. The main reason outfit photos came to a bit of a halt when I moved to Cleveland was that I just didn’t know where to take them. As a shy person, setting up a tripod somewhere that a lot of people are and posing for photos by yourself is basically out of the question. It’s just weird. In the last two years I’ve found a handful of spots that are fairly reliable places to shoot but nothing compares to the complete lack of people at my parent’s house. When I get there I normally go say hi to everyone, leave Klaus with them, and head off to take pictures before I inevitably get dirty. If you didn’t know, I am a dirt magnet.
On this occasion when I told my mom I was going to go take outfit photos she said “Both of you? Everyone looooves when you do those!” So although it wasn’t in the plans, I was “forced” to take photos with my handsome dude. (We totally would have coordinated if I thought of it before leaving the house!) I wasn’t sold on the photos as we took them. They just weren’t wow-ing me but I’m pleased with how cute they turned out. We really should do this more often.
Also, why stilts? Because they were leaned up against the garage and when there are stilts near by you can’t just not use them as a prop! Duh!
