Today’s character-inspired outfit isn’t as perfect as yesterday’s, but I still like it. And hey, it’s the best I could do considering this is the only plaid shirt I own, it’s raining, and I have a photoshoot to do today. In the rain.
And I still really like this outfit, which is surprising considering I’m wearing jeans. And I’m not a fan of jeans on me.
So weird story: a few months ago I got this email from some guy asking if I would wear a plaid shirt for him, because apparently he has a collection on Flickr of photos of women wearing plaid shirts for him.
I didn’t reply, because when I get creeper emails I just ignore them, but I was really tempted to shoot back an email saying all sorts of things about how firstly, I’m married so there is no way on earth I would be complying to another man’s requests for my clothing choices, and secondly, it’s inappropriate to ask a complete stranger to fulfill your fetishes online, and thirdly, NO. I just… sigh. It still gives me the creeps, and I almost didn’t want to share the outfit today because of it. But you know what? I like plaid shirts. And I’m not going to let some random stranger on the internet control what I post. So… here we are.
How would you guys have dealt with that email? I’m really not a confrontational person, so unless I get something overtly inappropriate, like borderline harassment, I generally ignore it all. But on to other things! I am a little bit nervous about today’s photoshoot, because I’ll have to wrangle the camera while holding an umbrella (and I may use the tripod to help out) aand… I still get nervous about doing family shoots.
I shouldn’t, though. I didn’t get to share my last one with you guys: it’s my brother and his family, and I LOVED the way it turned out! They are so cute. I have a few ideas for today; we’re definitely going to utilize the barn, and the wooded area (hopefully the light isn’t too bad there), and umbrellas. I’ve been doing a mad search on Pinterest all morning for ideas! Ah. I hope they turn out, and I hope the family likes them! We’ve decided to take Asa trick-or-treating this year, even though he’s totally not old enough for candy (we’re just going to.. you know… eat it all) because his cousins are going and it will just be really fun to do!

And I’d better go, because the munchkin is awake from his nap, and I’ve got 15 minutes to prepare myself (like, you know, eat breakfast) before the family gets here for our shoot!
