Played around with two photos today for the self portrait assignment. A little black & white, and a pop art look. I like the orange and yellow in the pop art.
Why do I take these self portraits? It's like a little date with me every friday morning. I prefer to keep the photos as natural as I can, but also like to play around with picnik or the big huge labs tools. It's so easy as a mother to forget to look in the mirror, to take time for ourselves. I am always taking photos of my children, my pets, or even my vegetable garden! This year has been different. I am more accepting of my flaws and the way I look. I am pushing myself to try new things (like the belly love shot last week).
I am always learning, learning to accept what I look like and love myself a little more. It's a journey.
