How we've missed you, photo booth.

Tonight I realized that it's been way too long since some good ol' photo booth happiness magic graced this blog. I got so caught up in real photos taken with a camera you can hold in your hands (thanks to Lissa) that I almost, almost forgot where I came from- my roots...as it were.

(Pretty standard.)

Side note: "As it were" can make basically any sentence sound intellectual and should probably be accompanied by gentle chin stroking.
For example: 

"This mayonnaise aint got nuttin on ma Miracle Whip...as it were." 

See? Brilliant. Feel free to check off that "learn something new today" box in your planner, or mind. Either or.  

Moving on. 

I've been meaning to show you something.

I have super stick-straight boring hair. A few weeks ago, I let it air dry and this is what happened suddenly all on its own. But then it got ugly and mostly straight about 30 mins later. Good thing I documented it with photo booth. Once again, dear photo booth, you're always there when I need you. 

And apparently there's only one way I know how to look when it comes to photo booth, intentional or otherwise. 

But hey, when it works, it works. And that little slightly-tilted-to-the-right-closed-mouth-little-smile action works

I love your hair!!! And I recently discovered the "photobooth" on photobooth. Even though I've had my Mac for like a year. Whoops. So fun! These pictures are cute!

Your hair looks beautiful in this pic! I love the wave and the body in it - you should try to re-create this :)

Alisha said...

Hehe, you two are adorable! Great pictures. And when something works, stick with it!!

That's all.

Happy Tuesday!

You're so pretty! And I love how your hair dried with those pretty curls! My hair never does that. Ever. At least yours did once :)

Ok.. I am loving the air dry hair and the photo booth picts! You both are darling!

Mandy said...

I Love how in your photobooth couples pictures you have the same facial expression (roughly) and Chas is making funny faces...totally reminds me of how I take pictures...I try to make as many goofy faces as possible...looking back on them later always makes me laugh...as it were :)

Have a great one!

Maria said...

Yay! Thanks for the good test vibes. Hopefully all will be well!
I have straight boring hair as well, every now and then if I don't brush it for two days (my hair's realllly thin/fine as well) and then was it and let it air dry and then just quickly brush through it a little it gets kinda wavy. But like your hair, just straight all the time.

Samantha said...

Oh gosh i wish i had straight hair.. mine air dryed is a big hairy mess ;p lol :)

Adorable pictures :)

Mugdha said...

Thanks, I love Cold War Kids too! Also, your blog is too cute!

Rachel Evon said...

um, i totally wish my hair would do that when it natural dries. yeah, it doesn't. btw, you're adorable. lets be friends.

Caitlin said...

Thanks for your comment :) I absolutely adore your blog!

I laughed when you said you use "as it were," I realized the same thing lately :)

When I was a kid I would've cut off my left hand for straight hair. I probably still would. When mine is long it's curly and wavy in a really weird way and I hate it...part of the reason I've kept it short for so long.

And finally, your pictures are so freaking adorable! Thanks for sharing!

'as it were'..haha I am absolutely using this thousands of time over the next week!

Hannah said...

Hahah oh how I love these! Photobooth is magical I swear...I love being able to 'pose' and see what you look like before taking the picture!

Unfortunately my hair is the same way!! Always teasing me when its half-dry then completely letting me down! xoxo

Megan said...

LOVING the waves!! I bet if you used some kind of styling product...a gel or mousse or something, you could coerce them into staying a little longer :)

meme-and-he said...

Kallie Anna said...
