imperfect

we had such a swell time with our impromptu photobooth, i think you'll be seeing it a lot more. and as much as i loved our anniversary photos, i also really love the messy, imperfect outtake shots. 

as photographers & bloggers, we often have to find the medium between being confident, creative personas, and showing off how goofy we really are...& it can be a tough balance to strike. to be fair, robert & i are BIG into optimism as a lifestyle, so that makes its way onto the deer circus a lot...and that doesn't mean we don't have blue days, but using this as the forum to voice our grumps wouldn't sit well with either of us. but that doesn't mean we aren't also really, really weird. like, seriously, so weird. and kind of shy. and greasy-faced in the a.m. and riddled with "bad photo angles" and knobby legs. and i guess that's why i really like these pictures. because i really like how weird we are.

  7. oh wow. first, these photos are awesome, and you're so right, sometimes the unplanned photoshoots are the absolute best. your words couldn't be more perfect either. sometimes i wonder what people that read my blog think of me. i wonder if i sound weirder than i actually or am. or am way weirder than i sound. it's hard to know when it's you. ha:)

  10. Aww weirdos are the best. If anyone saw what me and the hubs do in our free time together they would wonder what planet we came from. Its a pretty common discussion in our household :) Being goofy is what makes you guys so darn cute and special.

  11. I love this whole post! If only I was a bit more handy with the camera, and I didn't leave it in odd spaces where it is forgotten all the time. Yes, I know that just got a gasp from you.

    But it's sooo frustrating, when I mess around with all the functions trying to take a semi-cute picture and it comes out like it was taken with a Nokia3310. You have such a great talent!

    PS weird is good. and interesting.

  16. Going to art school I totally see and understand that fine line. There are definitely people who take themselves and their 'artistic nature' so seriously, never cracking into goofiness and as much as that deep, intense, intellectual blah blah blah stuff has an immense appeal, being goofy is probably the best way to get through life. So there definitely is a fine line.

    I love these photos :) They're so sweet
