MCLV Outtakes VI

Regardless of what type of photo shoot we’re doing – Activewear, jewelry, or fashion – You can bet that I’m finding a way to not only enjoy myself, but to work off some of my nerves.

Yes, I still get nervous when a camera is on me. That may be somewhat hard to believe, given my choice to become a blogger, but I’m not sure this will ever go away. In fact, I’d rather be taking the pictures than be the subject. I even went through a phase growing up where I refused to allow my family to take photos of me {teenage drama queen reporting for duty!}

MCLV Outtakes

I’m going to let you in on a little secret about things over here at Moi Contre La Vie Headquarters. This is not a serious place… At all.

Busy, productive, and filled to the brim with projects, but not serious.

Jennymay, Klaudia, and I have a wonderful time working together and our photo shoots often produce more images of us laughing and dancing and giggling than usable, blog-worth images. I sometimes post these silly outtakes on Instagram but recently received a request to share them on the blog as well.

So with that in mind, welcome to the first post of the new MCLV Outtakes series – Enjoy!

{I was beside myself with excitement for the entirety of this shoot – Getting a chance to work with the stunning and talented Candice Cuoco was such a dream. An outtake with her fixing me between shots of me bouncing around was inevitable.}
