• Outtakes •

Sarah and I had the idea of posting some so-called "outtakes" on my blog, so here goes.  

I must admit, the amount of them that exists from every single photoshoot is rather alarming, just goes to show you that we are all human.  It's just that some of us are a little more human than others.  ;)

Being rather jealous of my mom's pockets, I had to envision what it would be like if I had them in my own skirt.  

(outfits not posted as yet)

Something went wrong with that pose!  ;)

Here, it would seem we have an aged queen emerging from her carriage, being assisted by the hand of a servant.

Sarah decided to punish herself a bit by pulling her own hair.....  :)

....and later indulged in a native dance, otherwise known as mosquito swatting.  

Mom and I doing our rendition of "The Haircuts."  If you have not yet watched Sid Caesar's skit of a 1950s singing group, you simply must do so!!  :)  I guarantee you'll split a gut!!


Walking the runway, otherwise known as our back sidewalk. 

Sarah had a fancy to jump from a tree in her full 1860s gear.  The results, as you will see, were quite good.  :)

And speaking of 1860s, some of us like the idea of making our heads look just like acorns.  

Brown fuzzy bear jackets = height of vintage fashion.  Or not.
But what else would a girl wear when taking photographs in January?  ;)

What's happening here, I really don't know.  But it makes for an amusing photograph.  :P

Just, you know, twirling.  :) 


Thankfully, I wasn't actually falling off the wall, but it seemed too good of a photo opportunity to miss out on.  

Twirling in a half-circle cape and skirt produces some interesting results.


Hope you enjoyed these goofy snapshots, or at least got a good chuckle out of them!!  :)  Have a wonderful week, and thanks for stopping by!!
