Christopher is a sweetheart for taking my pictures almost every day, and over the past year, he's become a lot more skilled with our cameras, good photo locations, lighting, and angles. Lately, however, he has started to think he's Steven Meisel, and has been directing me on how I should pose, which cracks me up. "Now from the side!" he shouts from the sidewalk, "with your hand on your hip!" With his finger wagging: "Taneshka, remember to stand up straight! Angle your head to the left!" It's ridiculously charming, but instead of producing the perfectly-composed pictures he wants, it makes me giggle unstoppably. Christopher, I adore you. xo.

Oh, it's my favorite scarf! Every time you wear it, I think, Wow, that piece just makes the outfit. And you are rocking the neutrals today :-)

You look super cute! Your photoshoots sound like fun, Nate refuses to take my pictures regularly and only steps in when I'm having some kind of malfunction, and then he complains while he does it. We have a lot of shots of me flipping him off on those days.

Also, I felt smart for knowing what your title today meant!

Liz said...

Your outfit really stands out against the white background. I'm thinking I need some cords - you always look so great in them!

Aww. My boyfriend takes mine, and I thought he hated the process, but when I almost bought a tripod the other day he stopped me. I take that as a good sign.

I love this outfit. Especially the scarf and shoes. Really pretty.

I think he adores you back and that's also a reason he gets good photos of you!
