    This is me anytime I shoot in public…I can't stop thinking "what these ppl must be thinking of me" hahaha. I totally agree with all three of your points…giving your photographer actual inspiration pictures, it's soooooo helpful!! xoxoTiffani http://www.tiffaniatbretonbay.com

    Oh girl I can relate! There are times when I am so at ease in front of the camera and then there are times that everything I'm doing feels forced and stiff and awkward. Your photos look lovely though so I think you handled feeling awkward really well!

    You got some great photos, even if it wasn't as relaxing as you'd imagined! 🙂 Good tips too! 🙂 I take all my photos myself with a camera remote so it just makes posing even more awkward – will try the movement tip! :)Hope you are having a great week and had a nice Easter.Away From The Blue Blog

    I'm still sad I never got to visit the beach when I was in Charleston last summer! The beach is always a great place to wear Lilly. One of my blog photo tips is to always be behind the camera and test the lighting and settings and backgrounds on your photographer as the model first!! xoxo Awww.southernbelleintraining.com

    IF THIS AIN'T ME seriously it took me so long to get my posing down and even now I'm still awkward af. Moving is probably my #1 tip too! x
