Do's and Don'ts of Blog Selfies (+ a giveaway!)

Unfortunately for me, most of these photos I'm about to share are DON'TS. I can't seem to get this selfie thing down. It's just so awkward for me to say, "Hey, take a picture of me. No, sorry, you can't be in the picture. Just me." I even felt uncomfortable asking my husband to be my photographer! Maybe it's just me. Maybe I'm just an awkward person. Nonetheless, last weekend I set out to get a good picture for my sidebar. You know, like those cute little "About Me" pictures all you bloggers have. Well, if you're putting two and two together, you'll notice that I still don't have a selfie up there on my sidebar so our photo shoot was unsuccessful. [wompwompwomppp] Did you get that little sound effect I just did?

Let's begin...

DON'T fuss at your hubby for not knowing how to work your camera. Heck, you don't even know how to work it.

DON'T casually pose at your art table. So. awkward.

DON'T make this face. Not cute.

...or this one for that matter.

DON'T spend half the time trying to make your hair look jusssst right. It won't work.

Like I said.

DON'T go outside in the freezing weather without a coat just to get the perfect picture...

DON'T give your husband this face when he tries to rush the process. 

DO get surprised by one of your sweet puppies with a big slobbery kiss! 

Well, there ya have it. If you have any DO's for me, please let me know! I could use all the help I can get!

Before you go, please go check out the pretty awesome giveaway happening at Ten Feet Off Beale. (And no, I'm not just saying it's pretty awesome because I am a part of the giveaway. Psh.) Alyssa has an amazing blog that I think you will love!

Oh gosh, I am TERRIBLE at the selfies! I have a feeling this would go the same way for me and my husband.

Haha I love this post because I am horrible at doing self photos for anything! And the last thing my hubby wants to do when he gets home? Take pictures of me for my blog. Plus, he's pretty bad at it too. Now, if only my dog or my baby could take those pictures for me...lol.

Excited to have finally read through your blog! I'm loving it. And your pup...SO CUTE! I'm kinda obsessed with dogs :)
