Happy Thursday afternoon, yous guys. First, I feel like it would be rude of me to just start blogging without thanking you for all the really kind words about that whole lady parts post I shared this week. Means a lot, soo…. thanks. Really. You’re all officially number one on my speed dial.
Besos to your facos. B)
Okie dokie. Here’s what’s going down rizzight nizzow (FYI: I’m currently wrapping up my Bachelorette recap so I’m super into giving away at the beginning EXACTLY what’s going to transpire during the episode by teasing it before it unfolds, and therefore ruining it): I’m gonna address a burning Bambino question (talk about a poor choice of words but a fully legit alliteration), and then we’re going to address one of the raddest shoots ever, submitted by The Bird & The Bear. We’re also going to address why it’s so rad, imho.
Somebody asked me recently what Bambino does during those times I catch him staring at himself in the mirror. I think they asked, ” does he sit and admire his handsome self?”
I’ve been meaning to answer that question and what better time than now. So… no, he doesn’t. He does the opposite– he stays perfectly silent, stares deep into his own eyes, and then, when his reflection is least expecting it, he yells at himself to scare his own likeness off… and then proceeds to condense his entire body into a thick, round, densely gathered mass of fear and agility which he then uses to run the f**k away from his own image.
… This is my dog. There are many like it, but this one is mine. *wipes away tears of pride*
Ok. Here we go, you guys. I’m so excited. What’s about to unfold is pretty much an adult version of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, except Goldilocks IS one of the bears, and there are only two bears and actually “Adult” version doesn’t sound very tasteful so you know what scratch all of that. Here’s a good idea! ==> I’mma stop talking.
Here’s the background on why and how this shoot came to be — and the reason I find it to be so rad — from their stellar photog Caryn of The Bird & The Bear:
This engagement session has been one of my favorites this year. Megan and Brian are such a fun loving couple who were slightly nervous about their session. The solution we came up with was to play around with a couple of bear mascot heads to loosen them up! We also chose a very familiar park in the neighborhood where Brian grew up to create a more comfortable environment. The result? A hilarious video, a fun day, and photos that portray how they are when they’re alone – relaxed, happy, and oh so in love. Their wedding will be this June in Houston, Texas, and we can’t wait to capture it!
i seriously love this. everything about it.
Ok let’s chat. Things I’m interested in talking about…
1) Do you and your honey have a certain animal or something that you guys identify with? Bears happen to be our thing, so I have a special place in my heart for those bear helmets Megan and Brian wore (helmets? caps? I would call them ‘bear heads’ but that sounds to me like they decapitated bears and then put the gutted skins over their faces so it’s DEFINITELY not ‘bear heads’).
2) Are you shy about getting photographed? Do you worry about it at all, with regard to getting photographed on the day of your engagement shoot or wedding? How would you/did you deal with it? What helps YOU kick the shyness? Or are you FULL THROTTLE when it comes to being comfortable in your own skin. :)
3) Are you planning on reading my Bachelorette recap which I’m furiously finishing right now so that I can post it ASAP? Be advised; I ask you that for good reason… because your encouragement is the only thing that gets me through this goshforsaken process.
xoxo! - Alison
