30 for 30: On to the Next One

We are now officially on week 2 of the 30 for 30 Remix Challenge. For those of you participating, how has it been going so far? I think the first two weeks are going to be pretty easy and that the third week will be the hardest.

It's kind of like running a mile in high school; the first half isn't too bad, then you feel like your legs are going to fall off, and right when you feel like you are going to pass out... your legs go numb and you finish up like a champ! If you work out regularly you will not know what I am talking about.

Anywho, does anyone have advice on how to pose for blog pictures? I feel like such an AWKWARD TURTLE when I have friends and family take my picture each day. And after looking through the last few blog posts, I realized every picture I take looks the same- how boring. Tips on how to be less awkward are greatly appreciated!

Weekend outfits to be posted later tonight...hopefully :)


  1. Check out Sidewalk Chalk, because on her blog she has some posing techniques if you search for it. They are good ideas! I think you look beautiful, not awkward!

  2. All my poses are boring to me too! I don't have a tripod yet so I'm really limited in location and space to actually shoot within. I always feel super awkward. I don't think you look bad at all and I love this outfit! It's absolutely adorable!

  3. I just play around with my poses. If it looks goofy, I just don't use those pictures. Make it fun and move around! A tilt of your head or the other hand on your hips can make a world of difference. Hope this helps! Love that polka dot shirt by the way!!

  4. I'm dying over the fact that you mention the awkward turtle. That phrase was something my sorority sisters and i used repeatedly in college (our mascot was a turtle).

    Ps, you don't look awkward at all. Keep doing what you're doing!

  5. SUCH a cute outfit! I don't think you look awkward at all. :)

  6. so pretty.
    you look a lot less awkward than me!

  7. I too have a hard time posing. My hubby teases me and I just tell him its my signature move! U look great.


  8. Kate - my sorority is Delta Zeta (I went to the University of Kentucky). What about you?

  9. You don't look awkward at all! I find that the best poses are ones that come spontaneously like while fixing a shoe, turning around etc. Just have fun, goof off, and enjoy yourself. It'll show in the photos! =)

  10. have you ever watched a model work... I saw a youtube about a shoot once. The model was moving almost the whole time... if your camera is fast enough you can try that. Just a thought. I understand it's hard to pose...

  11. I wish I had tips for pictures - I could use some! You look great, though, and I love that top!
