Blog Bloopers

This is no April Fool’s joke. I am in fact, uploading photography mistakes, unflattering pictures, and blog fails for you all to laugh at me. My boyfriend, Kevin (or indentured blog servant, as he calls himself) and I are still brand new to blogging and photography and I figure we might as well laugh at all the failures along the way. And why not share them with the world, so you all can laugh along with me?

If this is your first time reading a post from my monthly bloopers series, I hope you’ll check out the first one I published so you can capture the true purpose behind why I started the series.

As always, these photos are all completely unedited. No cropping, no lighting changes, no color edits – NOTHING. Have fun scrolling and reading! 🙂

Photos taken for Bon Voyage!

Because nothing works better to charm my blog readers than a lipless, squinty, tongue-frown.


Pause the photo shoot, my eye is itchy.

Wait, why are you still taking pictures, Kevin? And why did you zoom in?

STOP, KEVIN, STOP.


Going for a sexy non-smiling shot here which undoubtedly did NOT work and looks oddly ape-like. Stick to the smile, Jenn. Also, say hello to Kevin’s crouching reflection.

Excuse me, I’m a fashion blogger. Hair flip.

No doubt daydreaming about tacos, pizza, and ice cream mid-photo shoot. Typical.

Merp.


No face at all is better than showing an ugly face.  I think the wind was trying to tell me something here.

Photos taken for Back to Basics

I am a turtle about to hide in my cardigan shell.


Snootily pulling up my pants since day one.

Who knows.


Sometimes the world looks better with my eyes only half open.

Ditto.


And sometimes it’s just better to see the world with my eyes completely closed.


I don’t wanna be a chicken, I don’t wanna be a duck….posing is hard, people.

Trump impression?

When someone walks by with a cigarette

Photos taken for Vietnam Adventures: Halong Bay

If you’ve seen my other blooper posts before, you know I have a talent for making this face. Bravo, Jenn.

Kevin, why are your feet in this shot and WHY are your toes curled like that?! Grossed out and laughing all at the same time.

When you’re so concentrated on not dropping your phone in the water that you take around ten of these accidental selfies.

Sorry, Kev…your toes AND your face made it into this month’s bloopers.

Photos taken for Thailand Adventures: Phuket


Can’t tell which way my head is actually facing? Me neither.

Brb. Laying an egg.


Ch-Ch-Ch-Cheese.

Nom nom nom. Yummy hair.


You guys. I don’t know.


One cannot be held accountable for a dysfunction while on vacation

Not really sure how people take the beautiful, hair in the wind, running beach pictures.

Because Kevin and I sure don’t know how to.

Do we blame the photographer or the model?

Let’s say it’s the photographer’s fault.

This is me yelling at Kevin for failing to make me look like a hot beach girl while running.

When you’re so excited to ride an elephant but don’t know how to show it

So the most logical thing to do is take your shirt off and swing it around

  9. I loved this! It made me laugh and helped me to realize, like everyone else. Your first photos aren’t always the best ones. And what we see on blogs and social media is the best versions not the ones that are real life.

  10. Haha these are hilarious – and how I look in most photos!

  11. These are so silly, love them! Bloopers give me life lol

  12. Hahaha I loved this, great idea! It takes me like 50 shots for 1 “good enough” shot.

    1. Right?! People don’t realize it can be hard for bloggers to be photogenic too!

  13. Love behind the scenes look! Bloopers are a great way to show that bloggers are like normal people!

  14. I honestly LOVE you blog so much! It’s so bright and refreshing!

    1. Aw thanks, Chelcee! So sweet of you to say!

  15. If I let my boyfriend takes photos of me, I bet all would be candid and most would look embarrassing haha. I’m fine with taking pictures of myself right now. You still look pretty though 🙂

    1. My boyfriend does a good job MOST of the time…but there’s definitely a plethora of unflattering ones as you can see! lol. Thank you, you’re so sweet. <3

  16. Omg these photos are everything. Definitely made my morning. (An honest fave was the accidental selfie… gets me every time) LOVE IT!

    1. Hahaha those accidental selfies are the death of me. So glad it could brighten your day though! 🙂

  17. Jenn, The bloopers are my favorite! I enjoy your comments too. Very fun and realistic. That photographer, Kevin is handsome and takes some great shots! signed, mom of Kevin!

    1. Hahaha! So glad you enjoy the bloopers, Lynn! Kevin has a knack for capturing my best and worst angles!

  18. Hahaha i love that you do these! You look totally adorable in all of them haha! It’s so fun to see a “behind-the-scenes” type look at blog photography. I know I’ve spilled entire dishes on the floor before when trying to take photos for a new recipe. Real life! (:
