Behind The Lens (See Jane Thank)

Eric

When I first started this blog, I never anticipated that I would feature outfits of myself.  Once I eased into it and realized it was something I wanted to do, I needed someone to snap these shots of me.  Luckily, my fiance (then boyfriend) obliged and was willing to take a few minutes out of his day to snap a the photos.  He still does the majority of them today (we're still learning to work my camera...slowly but surely) and although I thank him for doing it, I really am grateful that he helps me out so often and supports my little hobby.  Also to thank is my sister, who recently moved to Chicago.  She's always willing to take some pictures of me and ultimately, I benefit, because she has an eye for photography and always displays the utmost patience with me.  Because she lives here now, I'll have to do another feature on her.  They're really the best and just wanted to give you some insight on the great people behind the lens.  Thus, I present to you:  a few pictures I've taken of them recently.

Speaking of which, Eric headed off to Vegas this weekend and Emily is going to visit my parents in Ohio so I might be lacking a photographer this weekend...

Have a great weekend!

I'm always so curious who is taking the pictures of fashion bloggers. I just tweeted this the other day, so it's funny that you decided to post this. It seems like a nice little ritual to have with people you care about :-)

I'm sure my family would too, but I feel weird asking them so I still use the self timer

Nice of you to thank your photographers (nice of them to share their services with you). I generally take most of my own photos, but once in awhile I get some help.

I love this post. My BF is also my photographer so I understand that need to feel appreciative. He often times get frustrated photographing me but he does it none the less so for that I'm grateful as well! He literally photographs every day it's quite a feat. Suggestions for this weekend without your photographer... how about a tripod? I have one but my camera is so freaking complicated I have yet to figure out the self time lol. Have a great weekend!

It really takes a lot of patience to be the person behind the lens. Your fiance and sister are really sweet to do it! Have a great weekend, Anna!

This is so sweet, Anna. And the photos are great. I agree; it's important to recognize the other people behind blogs -- I know I certainly couldn't do it alone!

It's always nice when great bloggers show the behinds-the-scenes photographers, espeically when they're family and friends. My sister and boyfriend ocassionally take shots ofme too and I am eternally grateful!

All your photos are really great! I bet you'd do great self portraits, as well.
