My mother has finally learned how to take a decent picture. This has been a long time coming since I came back home to The Bahamas from college in 2013, a moderately successful natural hair blogger, looking to further expand into fashion.
I had no one to take my photos, and although my mother barely knew how to hold a DSLR, much less take a photo, I was stuck with her. The first time my mother photographed me for my blog, I remember being so frustrated because things that I thought should come natural to her, like making sure the camera was focused, or that a car isn’t in the background, or telling me to hold in my stomach, did not.
This is what really lead me to enlist the help of a professional, which I absolutely do not regret.
Now, I’m literally blushing because the photos in this post actually look decent and my mother and I left the shoot in the same friendly manner that we went.
I would still rather a professional photographer because there was still much direction needed on my part, and I prefer being told what to do when it comes to these things: Look up. Smile. Fix your hair. Wipe your face. Yaaaaz. I need that.
But if this is what mother dearest is working with these days, I’m good.
I love this top because it’s different than a traditional crop top, and it also conceals my chunky arms. Pencil skirts are my all time favorite garment, and I can assure you that I will be picking up my grand children from school wearing pencil skirts. Not crop tops though. Neaux.
Blush is my favorite color at the moment and I always appreciate the allure of a white garment.
What’s you favorite color or fashion item at the moment?
