It’s funny, there are probably a million photos we take for this blog that never see the light of day. These are a few of those.
I always plan my blog shoots around when I’m in town, planning what outfit I want to talk about etc. Sadly I’m too busy to just go to the streets and shoot whatever…and even this was part of an Instagram shoot whilst we were filming a video (coming soon!) at the Artist Residence Hotel.
My husband and I were walking to grab a snack and the early evening light was so beautiful, we decided to shoot for instagram and ended up trying a few extras just for fun.
Photographing for fun: it almost seems a lost phrase for us these days as it’s so associated with work. but often, this is how the best photos happen.
The outfit is pretty basic: my uniform of stripes, jeans and flats. I love this J Crew tee, it’s really lightweight and so easy to wear and I’m loving a red stripe as opposed to the classic navy.
In a world where everything is so staged, planned, planned and styled – here’s to a few photos that were a bit more ad hoc and spontaneous – because we all need a bit of that in our lives.
