It is funny how, after taking pictures of yourself for a while, you come to realize that you have your signature poses. I wasn't going to post all of these pictures until I realized that these cemented my feelings about signatures. Holding my hair with my left had in definitely something I do in most of my pictures.
First of all, it is a comfort thing. I rarely know what to do with my hands in general, let alone when taking pictures of myself. If my hands are not doing something then they are
probably always in my hair - twisting it, braiding it, tying it in knots (weird, yes). I definitely got this from my mother and, seeing as my baby falls asleep while playing with my hair rather than holding a blankie or such, I think it is safe to say that she got it from me.
Also, it is just plain practicality. It is very windy in Texas and if I didn't hold my hair then it would be in my face for most of my photos. Which, is not exactly what I'm going for most days.
Ah, thus the hand in the hair. And so a signature pose is born, I suppose.
Oh yeah, the outfit. I like it. Boots and dresses are making me happy as of late.
