Riley...and her awkward mama.

June 29, 2012
Riley and I were at the dog park yesterday evening, as per our usual routine. Like always, I was there with my camera, taking pictures of her and being the crazy dog mama that I am. Riley jumped up on one of the tables like she always does and I started snapping away with my camera. Before I knew it, a random dude had my camera and started taking pictures of Riley and I together. One of my biggest annoyances is having my picture taken by other people- it's just something that's always made me uncomfortable. Anyway, here are some really cute pictures of Riley and some awkward pictures of the two of us, courtesy of the stranger- she was trying to jump off the table and I was trying to hold on to her for the sake of the pictures.

  1. Great shots! I think the photos of you two are lovely, really looks like you were having fun and that is huge with portraits. Portrays a real thing between you two. So don't hate them, love them. I wish I had more photos of me and my dogs that were not posed moments where I nagged my husband to pick up the phone and oblige me. One day I will get a photoshoot with my girl.

  2. The pictures of you with Riley are BEAUTIFUL! If it was awkward in the moment, it doesn't show! They show a ton of love in a beautiful, natural, candid way.
    SO pretty!

    1. thanks Natasha! that makes me feel a little better about them. i've just always had a really weird thing about having my picture taken- strangers especially- it's something that's always made me feel uncomfortable. i think it has to do with the fact that a) other people don't know how to shoot my better angles LOL and b) its uncomfortable to see how others see you, if that makes sense. it's weird- i guess i just prefer being behind the camera ;)

      strangers ask to take my picture A LOT too-you'd think i would be used to it. i get a lot of random strangers wanting to take pictures of my tattoos. it used to happen to me a lot more when i worked in retail.

      but again, THANK YOU! xox
