something i owe you lads

























~

this is something i owe you guys, and have for a while now.

yes, it's a full on photoshoot—in color, multiple photos (24, to be exact), and no lyrical caption. it's what a lot of you like better (you don't even have to say anything, i know the majority of you prefer literal photo shoots), and even though i'm really not into this type of photography and hate the fact that these photos mean nothing besides "maddie went to a local park and got a sh*tload of weird looks", i still decided that today, the first day i don't have band, i would go over to a park and take some photos. again, i owe you, i really do. you're all dears and leave the sweetest comments. i know having all those scheduled posts wasn't really the greatest for you all, although they're actually some of my absolute favorites. regardless, i really hope you like these photos. :) also a special thanks to my dad for driving me to the park and helping me with certain setups. <3 stay sassy.

  1. Thank you so much. You put a ton of effort into your blog. But please, post what YOU prefer! These are lovely, and I think they're gorgeous, but if you don't, don't post them.

    1. thank *you* for being a sweetheart. <3 i may not really like these types of posts, and my other ones may make me happier, but at the end of the day, what makes me the happiest is making you all happy (lots of "happy" i know), so it's worth it to have a post like this every once in a while. :}

  4. Now, Maddie. Maddie must take what photis Maddie likes and not what photos others like unless she too happens to like them herself.
    I really liked the scheduled posts!! And Indie looks freaking amazing in these photos.

  5. I can't sleep and so I went online and came over here to see if you posted. This made my 12:30am self quite happy. Your photography is phenomenal as always and Indie is still incredibly beautiful.

    I never really wanted #27 until you got Indie. But now that you have her and I see your gorgeous pictures of her, she's high up on my doll wish list. ;)

    I'm going to go sleep now.

  6. Listen. You've got 91 followers. NINETY-ONE. That' something to be proud of. Don't think for a single second that you owe us a post, or you owe us a proper photo-shoot. Nah mate. We follow you for a reason; your photography is freaking beautiful, you're opinionated and not afraid to say what you think, you're funny, and because you are Maddie. You aren't fake, you don't pretend, you're just your wonderfully band trash self.
    Speaking of bands, do you see them apologizing for writing a song or album that not everyone will like? No, of course they don't, because the songs are personal to them. Your photography is personal to you, don't be sorry for it. Do whatever photography you want, and stuff the people who don't like it, OK?

  7. These are beautiful! Thank you for obliging us with a long, meaningless photoshoot. Lol. ;) It's just because your photography is so beautiful, we want more of it at one time! But this is your blog. Post what you want to. I'll be content with whatever you dish out. :)

  9. Hello... Remember on that "give me your honest opinion of my blog" post? Yeah. The page reloaded before I could finish writing. So I gave up cause blogger pisses me off.
    BUT ILL TRY AGAIN!
    So like
    I like the singular photo thingabob with the lyrics. It lets me admire your photography skills and that one photo.
    Because to be honest, on the posts with all pictures and no words I just scroll straight through to the bottom and say "that was great!" Without actually looking.
    In your singular photo posts my squirell brain has less to be distracted by, so I can see how you put the photo together and the colours of the eyes and hair and the clothes you sewed.
    And then we put together the puzzle of how the picture and the lyrics relate to eachother.
    I feel like more thought is put into the one picture posts- by both the author and the readers.
    Generally I don't comment my thoughts (idk why... I don't feel like it? They aren't the most fabulous of thoughts?) but I would like you to know that I do look.
    Plus it's kind of become your signature thing- just one or two photos with lyrics from some song.
    I hope you aren't letting yourself be pushed around by the commenters who wanted one of those long shoots.

    1. gwen, you have no idea how much it means to me hearing your thoughts on my one-photo-with-lyrics posts. honestly. my biggest goal with those posts are in fact to get you all thinking about what the photo may mean, or what it means to you, for that's what i feel photography is truly about. knowing that someone actually does think about it...? it's an amazing feeling you've given me, mate. :3 well, if you ever do feel like letting me know what goes through your mind when looking at a specific picture, do let me know, as i would love to hear. ;) ooo! i have a thing! i didn't know i had a thing. xD
      i think it's more of the fact that i'm a pleaser--i tend to feel bad when people aren't 110% satisfied with what I do for them/give them, which leads to me going out and doing things like this.

  11. Honestly, these pictures are amazing.
    But you should never feel like you "owe us a post".
    Like Charlotte said, (the other Charlotte, not me XD) you have 91 followers for a reason. Blogging is supposed to be fun. Don't force yourself to take a gazillion pictures because that's what some people prefer. If you want to post one picture with some lyrics, go for it. I personally love those posts, because they are so unique. So Maddie. They make me think. And I like to think.
    This is your blog. You should do what you want. AND THE HATERS GONNA HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE. But honestly, who cares?
    Post what you prefer.

  12. I like any posts you post! When I saw the photos I was like "Maddie took pictures at the park she posted about!" I would really love to try taking photos in front of a brick or stone wall, just to break up the endless backgrounds of grass or trees.

  14. to be honest I like the shorter ones because with longer photoshoots I just scroll to the bottom and leave a meaningless comment, like Gwen said. I like seeing how good of a photographer you are by admiring the one photo and not being distracted by having to scroll past so many pictures. I also really like when you post one photo every post from the same shoot.
