The Better Pictures Project

Over the past year fellow blogger Gillian, of Crafting A Rainbow, has been on a mission to learn new camera techniques and take better photos for her blog. In case you missed it, she’s featured me as her sixth and final muse for The Better Pictures Project. I’m SO inspired by her posts in this series and it’s been awesome to follow along. I really enjoyed answering Gillian’s interview questions and sharing some tips for better blog pictures.


If you’re curious about what kind of camera I shoot with, what helps me feel more natural when taking my own selfies, or why I like using photo collages in my posts, then head on over to Crafting a Rainbow and read the full interview, here.

Have you been following Gillian’s series? Did she share anything in particular that you found really helpful or inspiring? I’m sure she’d love it if you let her know!

p.s. If you’d like to read the original blog posts to accompany the photos she included, here they are: photo 1, photo 2, photo 3, photo 4, photo 5, photo 6.


  • Fantastic interview! I love that you encouraged folks to just do what feels natural. I’ve never personally felt comfortable posing with much in the way of props or taking on model-like stances. I don’t see myself as that kind of person/blogger and am a million miles away from being a professional model. I like the emphasis to be on my outfits and perhaps the location we’re shooting in. That might not be social media fodder, but it makes me happy and comfortable – and isn’t that worlds more important? πŸ™‚

  • OMG, that picture of Lucille!!!! Too stinking cute. Thanks for being my must this month! <3

  • I loved your interview and great advice! I have actually just upgraded my camera to a Canon SLR with a swivel screen and it really makes a huge difference (I am not sure how I coped without it), tripod timer photography is so much less hit and miss now and its actually making me want to take more photos which is an added bonus!

  • I love the interview! Thank you for the inspiration to take better photos. And also keeping it real with using what you have and no fancy props! It’s very refreshing πŸ™‚
