One thing that’s really important to my blog is portraying the real me. Too often we’re shrouded by aspirational images of people who look amazing all. the. time. I’m here to prove to you that it’s simply unrealistic to have that expectation.
Yes, I’m going to put the best photos of me on my blog post. And yes, I get a little giddy when my stomach looks flatter or my legs look longer simply from changing up the camera angles. I’m human. What you don’t realize though, is that I’m taking probably over 100 photos in each photo session and I’m only showing you the five best. So what about the other 95?
I’m excited to introduce a monthly series of blog posts that will show you that I’m far from flawless. I’ll be including the best photography gaffs and moments of candidness in these monthly displays of blunders – double chins, awkward poses, blurry closeups and all. And they’re all unedited.
I now present to you…(drumroll please)…this month’s bloopers.

I was born ready.
SO FREAKIN’ HAPPY ABOUT THIS HONEYDEW
Double chin, melon boobies combo for the win
“Make the melon look like my smile!” I said.
“You have to smile underneath or you’ll just look creepy,” he said. He was right.

Occasionally a little voice inside me tells me to dance awkwardly in front of the camera.
Foreheads are overrated anyway.

“Get the cactus in the shot!” I said. Well, he did what I told him to.
Errr…let’s move on.
Why yes, I was in fact going for an awkward backward lean as I squint into the bright, bright sun.
Upon first glance, this picture doesn’t seem so bad right? Let’s zoom in….
New LinkedIn headshot?
Me trying to do a sexy hair flip which turned into a penguin dance
I can’t open my eyes. The sun is too bright. I’m not happy about it.
Still can’t open my eyes. Sun still too bright. Still not happy about it.
DID I HAVE DRIED TOOTHPASTE ON MY CHIN ALL THAT TIME?!
Also do I have two differently shaped nostrils?

Trying to look like I’m falling without actually falling
We could NOT stop laughing at how incredibly photoshopped we look in these two pictures. ↓↑ I promise we’re not in front of a green screen.
That’s all for now, folks! Stay tuned for next month’s bloopers. Hope you enjoyed these as much as I enjoyed creating, uploading, and captioning them!
