Books, Blooms, and Bales {Portrait Photography}

Megan and I did a super fun photoshoot of each other yesterday and got tons of great pictures! We had way too much fun figuring out creative ways to pose for each other. I’ve tried (and mostly failed) to narrow them down for you guys. Whoops.

Photo credits to my sister Megan. (And assistance credits to me. Heh heh.)

Okay, buckle up, ’cause this is going to be a loooong post.

We started in the barn, since haybales make awfully good props.

AHHH I love this picture! I think I might use it for my “About” page.

XD I am pondering life’s mysteries…

AHHH THIS IS SO CREEPY. It looks like someone else’s arm is poking out of the straw and grabbing on to me. O.o

Awkwaaaard. (Don’t worry, it was on purpose.)

BWAHAHAHA. Megan wanted to take a picture of me with a piece of straw (or hay) in my mouth, so I obliged.

I love this one too! Do you think this one or the first one is better?

Next we went to the cotton seed barn… with a tiny spiderwebby window. O.o

This looks like a writing prompt or something. XD

Megan says my hands look old here. They kind of do, I guess. XD

This is one of my favorites because I love eyes. ♥ Also wow, I didn’t know I had so many freckles. XD But I don’t mind them.

For some reason I look a lot younger here…

Heh heh, Megan’s aim was a bit off here, but we decided to keep it as a “behind the scenes” photo. Featuring Megan’s dusty feet and Washngton Nationals cap, and The Extraordinary Education of Nicholas Benedict.

Okay, if you actually looked at all those pictures… WOW. Congratulations, I give you the Most Patient Reader award.

  1. Some of those are really nice – I think the hay bale ones are generally the most successful followed by the rabbit ones; what did you think? You had some great natural light to work!

  2. Amazing, genuine and creative photos… i especially love the ones where you’re hiding behind the book…it tells the story perfectly even without words. You and Megan did a great job, you should be proud of yourselves.
