Once upon a time, there was a cute little blogger who always changed her hair color. She dreamed of finding a boyfriend and eventually a husband… For companionship, for sharing adventures with… but let’s be honest… most importantly, to have someone to take all her social media pictures for her! One of the questions I get asked the most frequently is who takes all your pictures? Do you have a photographer that follows you around?? (I wish!) So if I don’t have a magical boyfriend or a little leprechaun that patiently travels around with me… Who the heck does take all my pictures???
Random strangers! It’s true guys.. I lost my pride to ask random strangers to take my photo a LONG TIME AGO! Especially when I’m traveling alone or I’m on a layover hanging by myself and I want a cute picture. (I’ve even asked guys when I’ve been on a tinder date!) Sometimes it turns out, sometimes it’s a hot mess (the picture and the date!) But hey, beggars can’t be choosers!
Professional photographers! I’ve had the privilege of working with some unbelievable photographers and I’m always AMAZED with the pictures afterwards! It’s not my preference to work with photographers though because, as I always say I’M NOT A MODEL! I always get nervous and can never fully relax when I’m working with photographers, and because I like to painfully and meticulously edit each and everyone of my own photos, I like taking them myself!
And last but not least, MY FRIENDS! I don’t have a lot of close friends in general, and even less since I’ve moved to Vancouver. But lucky for me, I have one Ride Or Die bestie who has become my pseudo Instagram husband! My friend Sam follows me around for HOURS and never complains! Most days, I don’t even want to shoot because I’m feeling lazy or anxious and she drags my butt out of bed. She’s even climbed a tree for me and asked a firefighter if I could climb on his truck! Now if that’s not true friendship, I don’t know what is!
She took all the pictures in this blog post and we were just talking about how much better she’s getting! I don’t know what I would do without her! Who needs a boyfriend/husband when you have people like her in your life! Cheers to you boo! Love ya!
