Lookbook: Hubs-Grapher 101

A couple weeks ago while in Singapore, I met up with Alexis of North on Harper. It's always nice to meet a fellow blogger in person, and I must say, I had a blast having lunch with her. I got to meet her hubs and their adorable baby girl. We talked about things to see and do in Singapore; how her German dad is practically my Dutch father-in-law's long lost twin; and how our husbands/photographers go about taking our outfit photos (among other things).Things hubs-graphers might say or do when they take your outfit photos:
  • First they complain that they have to take your photos as if they have something more pressing to do
  • Then they tell you that this is not a good time of the day for outfit photos as it's too sunny outside
  • After that, they ask you if you want to take the outfit photos yourself with a tripod...or inside the house
  • Finally, they agree to take your photos, but then say that they know of a great place to go for photos
  • So you drive to this photo wonderland and prepare to take photos
  • Before you can get ready to pose, he starts clicking away. You tell him you're not ready
  • He then tells you that your face looks weird 
  • You ask him if your hair looks OK. He doesn't miss a beat and says 'Yes'.
  • A couple hours later you go to your computer to edit the photos and you realize that not only is your hair a mess, but your bra strap is showing and your feet are cut off.
Thanks hubs! ;)

You look great. I always like black and white outfits :) I have the same problems with my husband/photographer as well. I tell him his angle isn't right and he says it's fine and then I go and look at the photo & I can clearly see he has gotten my feet in when I said not to or part of my head is cut off, haha!! We laugh about it, but he does a great job :)) So does your husband :) Have a great week x

That outfit is too cute! I don't take outfit pictures, but have enlisted my husband to take beauty pictures and he definitely requires a lot of instruction! I feel your pain!

Lol at the things he says! I just started seeing someone and he ACTUALLY took my camera for me (to hold) when I needed to get something and then started snapping photos of me (and my outfit) without me even having to! AND!!! He happens to be really talented with the camera, especially with his iPhone. I feel like I won the blogger jackpot :)

I actually think your husband takes great photos, they always look good! Thankfully my husband is always up for taking my photos and even helps me come up with cool angles and poses! Anyhow, love the B&W theme you got going here. So chic!

Emmy said...

Hahaha...at least, he still takes them:P My hubby completely refuses to take them coz he says I'm too demanding! Wut?!?!
Anyhoo, I do love this look, Cheryl:) Perfect for summer.

A•Mused said...

LOL!!!! OMG Cheryl, have you had my boyfriend take your photos?! Because this is EXACTLY what he says every.single.time. Like, every time. He does every single thing you just listed. I laughed so hard. I'm so sharing this with him.

kim bim said...

Totally agree with you on this one,I was laughing while reading your post. My husband does the same but i think your hubby is patient, you know? when my hubby is taking my photos, he is always in a hurry and on Saturdays he complains in low mumbling tones calling me the ''Photo lady'' and my kids calls me that name too, huh! i hate this lol but i just ignore them.You look so cool and cute. Have fun kisses...

Dear Girl Wallflower said...

your hairstyle made you look like a little girl! I like the captions of this post too about "hub-graphers", did you created the term? it's cute! haven't heard of it yet. You should have started a TAG of this post bec I am sure it is fun and I am one of those who would like to relay my opinion about my hub-grapher!

Shelley Zurek -- Still Blonde after all these YEARS said...

I have seen this boy/girl shirt everywhere but never liked it until I saw it on you. You must have styled it just right! Thanks for linking up to the Verizon Voices Style Hop both this week and last! You are awesome and I always enjoy your poses.
