IMG_9609-Edit-Edit

Truth: I love taking pictures of people…

Truth: I love take pictures food…

Truth: I love taking pictures of my cutie patootie husband…

Truth: I really love taking pictures of my super cute kid…

Truth: I’m a scaredy cat when it comes to people taking pics of me…

It’s true! When someone has their camera out I wanna run for the border. So when Grace, from Digital Graces asked if she could photograph me baking and blogging from start to finish I was super excited… but scared at the same time.

I have no idea what I was scared of! She was great to work with and took amazing pictures! She picked up on my style right away. I also loved how she turned the first floor of my house into a mini photography studio with remote flashes set up everywhere.

Oh, and she took an awesome pic of my 110 pound dog Shiner, or as we like to call him… Shiner Dog.

What about you? Do you gravitate towards the camera or hide under a pillow like me?

Hope you enjoyed the sneak peak! Stay tuned for more pics 🙂

    I run from the camera…literally!! It’s a pretty good workout actually. 😉

    Love the pictures! And you should love being in front of the camera. You are so beautiful. I usually end up behind the camera because I know how to work it best, but I love being in pictures if they are with my family. I love having the memories. 🙂

    Those photos are great. I love your kitchen, by the way.

    I hate being photographed. I’m so unphotogenic and hate 99 percent of all pictures I’m in. I generally think I look better in person. So I’m usually the one behind the camera too!

    I love these photos! I am a behind the scenes kind of gal. I hate being on the other side.

    I am all about camera gravitation, but too bad my camera sucks. Even if I (could) get a fancy one right now, which one do I get? Fancy cameras intimidate me at the moment. BTW, I love the action pose with leg lunge.

    You are so lovely, I’m surprised you don’t love being in front of the camera. Love the photos of you – and Shiner Dog.

    I love them, Estela! You are so gorgeous; you need to be in a magazine!

    I love the first picture of you. It seems very fitting. 🙂

    I’m always always always behind the camera 🙂

    I don’t run from the camera, but I don’t gravitate towards it either. I enjoyed the pictures of you because you never really post yourself. It kind of irritates me when bloggers post a picture of themself in every single post they publish. Is that bad to say?

    You are soooooo cute & a trooper for letting your friend do this photo shoot. It came out amazing, A lovely portfolio piece for both of you 🙂
