You Can't Always Get What You Want

I have a very hard time being serious in front of a camera. I always make silly faces, or just look awkward, or do something else to make an otherwise good picture a little funky. What can I say, I'm kind of a spaz! ;) This blog has helped me in that I can now take a few good shots in a row before crossing my eyes or sticking out my tongue, but there are still plenty of less-than-flattering photos of me. So, here are some of them in all of their unedited, uncensored beauty! Hope you enjoy! :)

Good thing I don't mind looking like a fool, eh?
Do you prefer being silly or serious in photos?


  1. definitely better to be silly!!! it shows so much more personality!! and i love that your nails are two different colors. i do that too sometimes :-)

  2. I try to be serious, but in between takes, I'll always ask "Does this look awkward? Do I look like a creeper staring into your soul... etc." Ha.

    Second one is my favorite. :)

  3. Hehe, some of those are quite good by my standards! Being silly is good, I think! I'm just unphotogenic, as my family and boyfriend love to tell me. So for one good picture there are generally two or three just like those or worse!

  4. hehe these photos make me laugh. I think a mix of both is always good xx

  5. Haha I tend to do the same thing but my mom is like "whit, you need to make normal faces." hhaha
    The last is my favorite :D

  6. Oh man, so fun! I often either wink or stick out my tongue when a camera comes out. This has been something I've done since age 2!

  7. these pics are super cute, i think silly is far more entertaining and visually interesting, i'm a bit weak in front of the camera haha still getting used to it, not the most comfortable moment for me! need to take a leaf out of your book i think :)

  8. hahaha u know what , for me i cant pull a serious face is someone is helping to take photos , its pretty awkward and even with my mum , i can rock my poses because i feel shy and sometimes silly

    but still i prefer natural candid , quirky photos lol cause its more surreal

    hey i cant help but to notice the beautiful bird tattoos you have

    i want to get a new tattoo , and at first i really really want a sparrow or dove in BW yours is really nice

  9. I am normally pretty serious in photos, although I prefer people who can be silly in them. Great headpiece in the last photo.
    By the way, just launched the Polyvore contest on my blog, I'd love it if you checked it out and maybe you will win a $1000.

  10. love the outfits! and the faces!

  11. Pretty photos!!! I love the first one! I would love to be silly in photos but I want to look cute too.

  12. I know exactly what you mean! Sometimes, I don't know what to do and I make silly faces or silly gestures, it does not look pretty!

    I love these, you are so adorable!

  13. Fun pictures :) I like the silly pictures... shows peoples true colors! :) :)
