Birthday outtakes + bloopers 2017

Happy birthday to me! It’s become a tradition for me to celebrate my birthday on the blog with an outtakes post. (I also celebrate the New Year with outtakes, as well as my blog anniversary in April.)

This year, I’ve mixed in some collages that feature common kinds of outtakes. And since my birthday is on the 12th, there are 12 collages in total. Enjoy!

Zoom, zoom

I often ask Sam to take closeup pics, in order to zoom in on pattern-mixing or textures. And because Sam just keeps clicking away, whatever I’m doing, he often captures me gesturing to him to take closeups and where.

When the backdrop rebels

We had set up an all-white backdrop on the side of our house to take our first set of photos for an Audrey Hepburn style inspiration mini-series. The wind that day kept blowing the backdrop up and around me. It’s a wonder that we got any usable shots on the day! 😀

Audrey Hepburn style inspiration: All black + silver hoop earrings

Flailing arms

These kinds of outtakes happen when I’m moving my arms to change poses. Not the kind of “action” shot I prefer! 😉

Missing limbs

Sometimes, my limbs temporarily go AWOL when Sam clicks the camera — equal opportunity legs, feet, or arms!

Reaching for the camera

I’ve featured these kinds of outtakes before, and I have a handful of new ones each time I do an outtakes post. Like I said before, Sam just keep clicking the camera in hopes of capturing outtakes like these. This outtake happens when I reach for the camera to check on photos, usually in the middle of a photo shoot, to make sure the photos are coming out okay.

He really is SO pleased with himself when he gets a “good one.” Here ya go, sweetie, a handful of “good ones” (har har) 😀

Smooooooth

When I do something goofy, I often follow it up with a “smooth” hand gesture, like a cat resetting itself after an embarrassing incident. (I am a total cat person.) As always, Sam is happy to catch these oh-so-smooooooth outtakes!

Trippin’

When we were taking photos by this mural, I tripped — I have a tendency to trip on, um, nothing — and Sam was there to capture the magic! (He was soooooo pleased with himself that he got these pics!) I kind of like that they kind of came out like weird dance moves. Trippin’. 😉

Photobombing dog

OMG, I laughed SO HARD when I went back over the photos from this day, to discover that a little dog had totally photobombed me while I posed against a large rhododendron bush in a local park.

This is as glamorous as it gets for a style blogger, y’all. 😀

Reacting to Sam

Sam likes to capture reaction shots, so he will often make jokes or make weird noises when he’s taking photos, in order to capture a funny facial expression or burst of laughter from me. I am sure that the outtake below is a result of Sam saying something SHOCKING.

Making adjustments

Have I mentioned Sam just keeps clicking away no matter what I’m doing? No? 😉 Well, here’s another benefit (or drawback, whatever your perspective) of him doing that — catching me make adjustments to my clothing or my hair or just NOT BEING READY OH MY GOODNESS JUST STOP TAKING PHOTOS.

Weird facial expressions

I do have a (sometimes frustratingly) expressive face! Evidence below, running the gamut from “Whut?” to “I dunno” to  “Ew” to “Enh?” 😉

Just being goofy
