How does Ashley do this?

So when you are the Momma of Ashley (Little Miss Momma) people assume you know how to do everything she can do.  NOT!!!!!  Not even close!

Like those amazing self portraits she takes...  I've been at her house and seen her process.  She throws on a shirt, fluffs her hair, dabs on a tiny bit of makeup and adds a belt or some jewelry...   Point ...Click...Shoot,  and She's done.  



Is she the cutest?  Serious I did good!  That's my baby!



How easy is that?  NOT!!!!!

I tried this....  Not that simple... 300 shots later....


I called her to complain,  Like I always do when it comes to learning how to blog....
She said "Mom it just takes practice!.... You can do it!" 
She is such a good kid!  So I tried again...
And again.......  Still blurry.  Need.   to.   focus.   and.   to.    stop.     shaking.

and again...  almost had it then.... crap the tongue thing, i do while concentrating.

maybe I should back up.... NOT!   Too far away and blurry!

blurry and stop looking at the lens...bone head.

Hummm... not bad.  I'm getting the hang of it. ....  
Maybe I should try a full body shot for Nina of Momma Go Round fashion link party on Friday???

NOT!!!!!!!  Definitely not a model!   Just stick with head shots.

OK... Here we go.  out of 300 tries i can live with this one.  A bit blurry still but I'm done!

Way to hard...

Good thing I have the beach to take pictures of.

I LOVE that slightly blurry closer up one of you! So cute! You'll get it, I promise. Try goofing with the settings on your camera. It took forever for me to figure it out too :)

Ashley @ Little Miss Momma said...

LOL, you are the funniest Momma in the whole wide world! My favorite is the collage of all the blurry pictures--you had me cracking up! But in the end, you did have a few great ones! Practice, practice, practice :) love you mommy!

btw: come visit me! i am sick and I want my momma!

I'm following your blog now. I came over from your daughter's post. My name is Michelle too, I love the beach, although I come from the colder east coast in New England--but a beach is a beach! And finally, I cannot manage to take a picture of myself without it being blurry either! I am thinking I'll just have to use the cell phone camera from now on.

This is the most fabulous post in blogger history. You're awesome! I loved this! Thanks for making me smile!

elise said...

I just laughed so hard. You're awesome!!

Stunning- said...

You did really well!!! It takes a whole lot of practice and Ashley does seem to have a knack for it!

We'll all catch on eventually!!

Your beach photographs are gorgeous!

Chrissy @ Boerman Ramblings said...

truly this post made my day! I laughed out loud! I so know your pain. i took me like a year to get the hang of self portraits and i still mess up a lot!

Keep going girl!

Brittany@Love Stitched said...

So funny...I feel the same way...I can't do the self pics like Ashley does. I have to steal my hubs away to take some for me! I guess I need to practice too!! You did have some good ones but I LOVED your mess ups...your gorgeous Michelle!

Stephanie {Luxe Boulevard} said...

I'm still getting the hang of it too. I think it varied for everyone, their camera, and their surroundings. I tried some of the techniques Ashley mentioned, but they just don't work for me. Especially where lighting is concerened. But I'm getting into my photography niche. I'm looking forward to linking up with the Fashion Friday.

Hey! You're pretty good at that. The kids are amazing the way they take these photos of themselves. It's like they never need anyone on the other end of the camera at all. Why do I exist? You are adorable, and so is your cute little daughter.
