Let's Get Candid

I was scaling through a plethora of awkward poses and could not for the life of me, choose a single photo from this shoot (out of the 50 shots we took) to post on Instagram. The poses were off, my face was awkward, or the photo just simply did not make the cut. Then it dawned on me, "do I really need that perfect shot?" 

When I launched my blog, I felt pressured to produce the most staged and structured content to look like I knew what I was doing; to appear professional. It's seemed without this, you couldn't really be taken seriously. There were so many bloggers out there with the most "instagrammable" content so my outfits, locations, and settings were all quite systematic and pre-planned. Years later, I've come to realize that my best content is my most authentic content, capturing real moments as I go about my day. Don't get me wrong, I still get a kick out of planning and executing beautiful picturesque shoots, but it's nice to not have to worry so much about capturing the perfect shot, but rather capturing candid moments.

  1. YES. Love this post. I think there is a ton of pressure to get that picture perfect shot...but sometimes the real moments that are totally imperfect are the best ones!
