this photography business is hard work...

sometimes i ask my husband to take pictures of my outfits. 
more often than not, it has been awkward and goofy 
and has been a subject of angst between the both of us.
i've sent him countless emails with blogs i have crushes on, like the satorialist or atlantic-pacific, with email titles in caps::
but it's still work in progress.

one of the tips we picked up is that, the model always looks relaxed. 
but frankly, im the least "relaxed" person in real life & i have the BIGGEST grin ever.
so it has been a frustrating exercise in futility. 
in contempt, i told my photographer, why don't you show me how to do "relaxed".

his "model-looking-relaxed" demo which sent us in giggles..

our imitation of the "model-looking-relaxed" in our garden. 

thank goodness we're not a fashion blog here! :)
in other news, i miss my goofy best friend.

    did you see the haiku one or the beatles one? haha! he has the silliest one!

    i remember when we were first dancing, pre-dating, he wore this tee shirt with three running trees. and it only struck me that it meant "run forest run" in the middle of the night when i went home. and made me laugh aloud! :)

  8. Oh yes we saw the beatles one! That was awesome. Where did he get all these cool tees?!

    Hehehe, I like how he doesn't try to 'show off' his wares and we were too polite to ask but I couldn't hold it anymore and had to ask. Hahahaha

  9. @Yi Lian

    he gets a few of them from but the rest, from around the place! :)


leave me a little love note. xx
