Of course while shooting the last two posts, we had many bloopers. Especially because the photos we wanted to get took some serious sand rolling. Some shots included laying on our backs in order to produce the pure sky and swing photos. At the end, we also both hopped on a swing at the same time while I attempted to take photos of us both. You can only imagine all the dirty looks we were getting from 5 year olds wondering what the hell we were doing moving in on their jam. Half were impressed, half were amused.
(I just missed snapping the photo at the right time on this one)
(It took a while for us to figure out when to snap)
(The shadow shots are my favorites)
In some unexplainable way, these photos say a lot about us. We both always have crazy ideas that the other is always up to try. I love that Chelsea never thinks I have a bad idea and I always love her ideas. No matter how impossible they can sound, I know that we both have it in us to let our imaginations come to life.
After snapping some photos of Chels on the swings, we swapped places and she took some awesome shots. We took turns swinging and rolling the sand to take the photos and had so much fun producing these photos. It’s funny to be ‘posing’ while swinging because although they are static shots, you are constantly moving. In a sense, you never know what you’re going to get. A lot like Forest Gump’s definition of a box of chocolates.
Check back tomorrow for some awesome bloopers for these past two shoots. You know these weren’t easy and we definitely have some great photos to prove it 🙂

I recently saw a fashion photo with a swing and it got me inspired to do our own take on it. It was easy enough to find some swing sets but it was much more of a challenge to find the most interesting angles and flowing skirts that didn’t reveal too much. Chelsea had this beautiful outfit and idea that sheer skirts would flow nicely so we threw on some outfits and headed over to the park. It was a very hot day but we giggled the entire way through this shoot. Playing on swings was so much fun and we ended up sweaty and out of breath by the end. I love our time hanging out and working on the blog together, I couldn’t ask for a better partner in crime!!

(This is one of my favorites. She is so elegant and graceful)
We hope you all had a great weekend!
