When the Shutter Snaps

Welcome back to Crazy A. I’m your host, Amie, and today we will be viewing some photographic endeavors. You see, this is kinda hard, because for the past three weeks, it has been the usual winter rains, where there’s flooding, and all it does is rain. Rain. Rain.

And that, my dear friends, is not conducive to photography.

But regardless, I have done some photography, and so you get to see my efforts. Rain has made me focus more on indoor photography, which is honestly good for my skills.


So, I was given this beautiful bouquet and after…four weeks? It’s finally perished. *sniffles* Mostly, perished. Only the daisies and the greenery are still alive.

But I love bouquets. My mom is very anti-bouquets, saying that it’s ridiculous to spend money on something that just dies, but to me…I don’t know. They’re beautiful to photograph, and often times they smell good, and I just love them.


This bouquet had all of my favorite flowers. *insert heart eyes* Daisies, lilies, roses, hydrangeas, and little purple flowers that reminded me of lavender. I just loved it.

And I love the people who sent it. ❀


So. Star is one of my favorite things to take pictures of. πŸ˜‚Β She just has so many cute poses. (It’s so cold here today, so at the moment, she’s underneath a blanket.) I’m constantly telling her, “Hang on, let me grab my camera. DON’T MOVE.”

I’m not sure she understands me, but whatever.


See? 😍 SHE’S SO CUTE. I put my jacket around her because she was cold, the poor little pupster. And then she just looked SO VERY CUTE.


So I’ve suddenly had this obsession of taking pictures that don’t look like me, that are technically of me. XD (See this post.)

I created a pretty hilarious YouTube video (In my opinion) and for that video, I dressed up and did my makeup REALLY differently than I’ve ever done before. So it was time for a photoshoot of myself, looking unlike myself. XD


I was so proud of this look, because it looks so different. This is NOT what Amie usually looks like. But it was fun to do, though my sister and I both agreed, this isn’t a smiling look. Regardless, I took a picture of me smiling. πŸ˜‚


It’s fun to experiment with styles, looks, and different types of lighting. I like how these pictures as slightly backlit. *nods*


I have been spending wayyyyy to much time at our eye doctor, so I finally brought along my camera, and asked to take pictures. They quickly agreed, giving me permission to go all over the shop and get pictures. I didn’t particularly want to go to the back, but I did get some fun pictures!


Glasses are just so pretty.


The displays they have are amazing. The whole shop is this rustic, and yet modern vibe which is so attractive and cozy.Β in other words, it looks just like I want my future house to look like. πŸ˜‚


Eep, I love my eye doctor’s place. XD


We shall end this post here. Which one was your favorite photo? What have you done this week? Are you tired of winter?

    Star in your jacket is absolutely 😍. That one has to be my favorite. And no, I am not tired of winter, because we haven’t had more than a handful of “true winter” days here in Oklahoma this time around πŸ˜…

      Star is actually a Tibetan Spaniel. πŸ˜€ And I love that picture, too. It’s so…stark, almost, but also so positive.
      Like, today will be awesome, but it might also be hard. And you just have to learn to appreciate the hardness of life, and resolve that even if it’s hard, it’s still awesome. πŸ˜€

    This was great! ❀ And yes, I can testify that I have never seen you look so grown up in real life. Listen up everyone; if you ever go to see Amie, she will 99.99% not be looking like that. Your welcome for that. Just thought you should know. XD LOL.

    Did you get my email Amie?
    By the way, my character was peanut butter cookie. Do you agree?
    Love you so much!
