JennifHsieh is a space for my rambling thoughts and snaps of my everyday style. I'm based in Astoria, Queens and I share a home with my two derpy cats and my equally derpy fiancé.

Barely Breathing

For these self-portraits I went to the nearby baseball fields in my town. I thought I outsmarted everyone by coming around 1 pm since school was still in session and no one would be around to witness my awkward posing. However, I was joined by two middle aged men tending to the baseball fields and riding around on their tractors. I felt extremely awkward and ran away as nonchalantly as possible. Oh, this camera? This tripod? They're not for taking pictures of myself - I just really like snapping shots of batting cages.

I'm currently taking a break from responding to emails and putting together resources to watch Because I Said So on TV. I love anything related to Mandy Moore and I also haven't watched the movie in a while so the ending is still somewhat of a surprise. Plus, Gabriel Macht is kind of gorgeous so I don't mind watching him for two hours. :)

Don't forget to enter the Shabby Apple Bow Skirt Giveaway by Friday! :) 


  1. These are really well done self portraits. I think your outfit is adorable. Those heels caught my eyes right away.

    What aperture setting did you use to achieve such a shallow depth of field?

  2. I love this outfit. The shoes are gorgeous, that purse is lovely, and the hues you've used are just brilliant!

  3. You look so grown-up, Jen! This is a very feminine outfit. I like how you're wearing more girly clothes. Great contrast to the baseball field, too.

  4. Uhhh, why can't my pics ever look as amazeballs as yours? :( Teach me your ways!

    Also, I LOVE THE FEMININE DETAILING. So cute! I am a huge fan of the crochet top, and that skirt is soooo cuuuuuuuuuuuuuute <3

  5. this is very beautiful. and considering the awkwardness and the clutter you got by doing this photoshoot yourself, i think you've done an amazing job.

  6. Queentastic outfit! REally love it jen. The heels fit on you so well :)

  7. Hehe this reminds me of the post I did for Emily with the cream top and blush pink skirt. I love these photos Jen! You need to teach me how to take self portraits like these when I see you next! The shoes are so cute too! Eep!

  8. Hahaha that cracked me up! I've also taken photos of me on a tri pod in public and the looks I got were not so understanding! They all must've thought I was so vain :P

    Love the shoes! They go with your skirt so well! :)


  9. I love your summery sweater, and I totally hate it when people wander around and crash my outfit shoots - i get out of there before they can start asking questions!
