My Greatest Photographic Moments of the 2010s

Chanel-style double pearl necklace with sheer rose top - Not Dressed As Lamb

For most of the last three or four New Years I’ve looked back on the previous 12 months and picked out my favourite shots that made it onto the blog.

[Reading time: 7 mins. WARNING: it’s photo-heavy…!]

This year? Of course it had to be a retrospective look back at ALL my archives, seeing as I was blogging for most of the 2010s.

All the photos I’ve featured were taken by Keith, as I only wanted to show those that were a collaborative effort between him and me (so no shots from brand campaign photo shoots). To give you some context, I’m the one with the photography degree, so although he had a good grasp of the subject (and how to use a DSLR) when we started, I taught him a few settings and tricks that helped improve his photography no end.

(Hence why there are no shots from my first year, 2011… there was definite room for improvement back then!)

It wasn’t long before he didn’t need any more help from me, and it was only a few months before we started to get some really beautiful results. It takes a while to build up an understanding and good relationship when shooting together – even if you ARE married/in a relationship.

So I have to say a HUGE thank you to Keith for being the master behind the camera, for moving me a little to the left or the right, for making sure my collar isn’t at a weird angle, and for always looking for the best light. Some photos are more about the shot itself (lighting, composition, location, etc.) and some are more about the outfit, but all are a combination of both in varying degrees.

In case you’re thinking “Nooooo Catherine, I’ll never be able to produce shots like that”, remember it’s not that difficult to get photos this beautiful: you can improve your photos when out shooting (it’s not all about the camera), and you can improve your photos when editing (which can make or break an image). Having a lot of time is a big help, and in the earlier years we had far more time to look for great locations and wait for the right light to get the perfect shot. In the past two or three years, however, we’ve always had Riley or Suki to consider and it’s not as easy to shoot with a doggo in tow, hence the fewer featured favourites from about 2018 onwards. These days we have to just ‘shoot and go’ so often…!

We HAVE been swotting up on what we can do in the future to get great shots with fewer resources (i.e. locations/backgrounds) and less time, so hopefully this year you’ll see a change as we feel the shooting has got a bit stuck in a rut lately.

Looking at the shots over the years was really interesting for me as there were so many I haven’t looked at in ages. I have many different hairstyles, hair colours, eyebrows styles, nail lengths and weight fluctuations going on. And yes, some of the outfits are a little dubious, but I just remember that I loved them at the time, and that’s what matters. Having these shots is a fascinating record of my style over the last 8½ years, and I wouldn’t change them for anything.

Santorini swimming pool style | Not Dressed As Lamb

2016’s greatest photographic moments

Awards ceremony outfit: White cape, navy culottes, Paris bbok clutch | Not Dressed As Lamb, over 40 style

October 2016: I love the shape my cape makes here. A simple shot, beautifully composed. Original post >>

Perfect spring outfit: Red Breton stripe t-shirt \ white full midi skirt \ black d'Orsay patent heels \ tortoiseshell sunglasses \ black box handbag | Not Dressed As Lamb

    Bravo Catherine!

    It is definitely hard to choose one single favorite. There is one photo that sticks out for me though: you in your bikini coming out of the water. First, it’s very brave to post oneself in their swimsuit! Second, it is such a Linda Carter Maybelline moment. My sister and I used to play Linda Carter in the swimming pool trying to capture moments just like the one you have here! This picture is perfectly classy and sexy all at the same time. And did I say brave? Oh yes I did. Confidence, self-confidence, is the best outfit!! (Another favorite wink wink;)

    Now, is it copyright infringement if I still the idea of this post. It’s such a great idea. I recently conducted my very first reader survey (have you taken it?), and this might be the perfect way for me to announce the results.

    I love visiting your blog Catherine.

    With love,

    Annie

      WOW Linda Carter – now that’s a compliment Annie, especially when I was a MASSIVE Wonder Woman fan when I was a kid (I had the original Kenner WW doll, still have the red boots and navy uniform)!! Thank you hon, I’d forgotten just how good the pool shots were… and yes of course, be my guest to do the same kind of post. It wasn’t a wholly original idea anyway, I’m sure I started my “best photos of the year” posts after seeing someone else do it! xoxo

    I have read this post 4 times now. 3 on my phone and 1 on my laptop. I say “read” but I mean “ooooooed” “ahhhhhhhed” and marvelled at the amazing photographic duo that is Keefrine. These photos. The light. The colours. Your amazing hair. The sheer beauty. My favourite one is the one of you and Riley in Cornwall. And that portrait of you in the purple top is just mind blowing. Thank you for sharing these, you really inspire with every click of the camera.

    Looking at these photos, one after the other, I was rather affected, actually. What I was seeing was not the clothes, but rather how a man “saw” his partner. Taken through the eyes of love. Capturing the essence of you. The photos are beautiful. This is my favourite post.

      Oooh yes a sea wall is good Laurie because of the texture – and then you get fantastic light, even in winter (like mine was here). It took us a while to find new spots when we moved, so I feel your pain! Sometimes a great place can be JUST around the corner though, and it’s been on your doorstep the whole time #facepalm

    No words come close to describing this post Catherine. Breathtaking doesn’t begin to cover it. I’m so inspired by each and every shot. You and Keith are incredibly talented on so many levels and to think Keith got me started using light room! Honestly you guys should be teaching this stuff.

    Oh my goodness Catherine. What an absolute feast of beautiful images. The one with the hoverfly is beautiful and I love all of the dreamy romantic portraits. The Catherine clones are so clever and such fun. I don’t think I could pick a favourite. I remember the santorini shots so well and of course, I remember all of your blog award outfits. You and Keithe make the perfect team. Thank you for sharing. They have cheered me up as I sit here with a runny nose, streaming eyes and a sore throat! Lots of love xxx
