This weekend was something a little bit different for me. Now I know I have had my blog almost a year now (how crazy is that! It’s nearly been a year!) but I have never actually been out for a “photoshoot”. I hate saying that, I don’t know why I think it’s just because I have never done it before. Anyway, I did it and I really enjoyed it.
It was a pretty last minute plan with one of my fellow blogger friends Chloe. If you love anything girly and pink you will love her blog so make sure to check that out here as well. We headed into the city centre mainly so Chloe could get some photos that she needed. I didn’t expect to get many myself. I was simply playing photographer for the day. However, I did manage to get a fair few and I was pretty happy with how some of them came out!
As you can probably tell something clearly made me laugh here. I don’t particularly like this one but it’s always good to throw in one of the failed photos for the lols isn’t it.
I genuinely had a really lovely day. We had a stroll round by the art gallery. We also went to a little tea room in Grand Central called Cocoa. I believe one of the former contestants off the Great British Bake Off has opened it. It was such a cute little place. The cakes were absolutely unreal, they were presented on a little wooden board with loads of extras to make the cake look really atheistically pleasing. Unfortunately it doesn’t come out on a wooden board with all the extras but the cake was still delicious.
Of course I had to grab a mocha while I was there. I couldn’t go to a tea room and not get my favourite hot drink. I am pretty sure the people working there knew we were getting content for our blog with all the pink things that we had going on. They even brought my mocha out in a pink cup!
Not forgetting the pink flower wall that they had next to some of the seating areas. I mean who doesn’t love a good pink flower wall for some cute pictures? We definitely took full advantage of the fitting atheistic that we had all around us.
I was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable I was when taking pictures with other people around. Let alone them being full length photos (that’s a little insecurity of mine… we will save that one for another post). However, I wouldn’t say I was completely comfortable but you know, we are taking small steps! In fact me and Chloe have already been discussing some other places that we can go to get some good content for our blogs. Very exciting stuff! So stay tuned for that.
It feels so good to be back on the blog, with a plan in place and a lot of motivation! If you had wondered where I have been you can catch up in my previous post here. My new blog schedule start from this post so you can check that out on my Twitter for when to expect a new post! Also let me know in the comments how you feel about taking photos when you’re out in public? Do you get a little self-conscious like me? I don’t know what it is but I just feel so awkward at times! Although I know in time I will be semi-okay with it I hope!
