Few of the successful bloggers I know have strong support from their families. They are also called Instagram husbands or IG sister/brother/mom/dad. I cannot even comprehend how much dedication it takes from bloggers who are also full time moms. As most of you know I have IG husband (Harsh), he is the one who pushed and supported me to finally start this blogging journey. I know some days he thinks “why did I push her to start this” haha. Even though it’s my passion, my husband Harsh puts in as much effort into each picture and post. He does my photo shoots every weekend. He maintains and upgrades this blog. We both have full time jobs while maintaining and keeping this blog live on the side. He always wishes me whenever I gain 100 or 1000 followers (never forgets). I know, he is so sweet.
Initially these photo shoots were all work and with busy schedules we noticed didn’t have time for us. We noticed it very early on and discussed how we both felt, we consciously decided that we would grab brunch or lunch with every shoot. Sometimes we sit in a café sharing deserts and coffee talking about our dog (Harry) being all cute (LOL). Harsh makes fun of me with all my faces and poses I try to give for photo shoots and fail miserably. Our bloopers are really funny.
If you are new blogger or started blogging a while ago with the help of a family member. I would encourage you to make it fun for them as well. If they are supporting you with your shoots or blog, then they deserve more of your time. Grab a bite and drink in between or before/after the shoot. Talk about things they like. Keep them involved by asking opinions about your outfits, it will keep them engaged as well. This blog is not only mine, Harsh is as much owner of it as I am. He likes to stay behind the scenes and loves to see us grow. When I was trying out my outfits with the shoes from Payless. I showed three looks to Harsh. I walked down the stairs and asked how I was looking. He said great to all (as usual he was busy playing FIFA). Ultimately I picked what I like, but I still like to ask him, I am sure we all do that.
Next day we went for the shoot. We do a lot of walking while shooting (Harsh walks fast), so naturally one of my main concern are my shoes. To be honest, I did not feel a thing, because of the support of the laceup boots on the bottom and the quality of inner sole was great. When we were about to start our shoot, Harsh said “are those my soccer knee socks” and I am like, wait WHAT!” I said, of course not, they are my knee high socks. So during the whole shoot, he made fun of me “how I stole his socks”.
We walked two miles that day and these laceup boots not only looked great but made the whole process comfortable. They are trendy and fun for most age groups. I love the fact they are black and I could wear them with most of my outfits. We grabbed lunch afterwards, we laughed about the stolen socks. It was a great day full of laughs and beautiful moments with Harsh. I will give this whole credit to Payless because if it wasn’t for them, I would not have worn this outfit with these shoes and “so called stolen socks”.
p.s. those were his socks (we all make mistakes, right! Lol) but they looked good. 😛
