One of my first assignments, when I joined the group of Confidence Workshop teachers was to take a self portrait. My first thought was, “what?!” It meant that not only did I have to get in front of the camera, but I had to take the photo myself. Oh my goodness. However, once I started brainstorming what I wanted to capture to best show this season in my life, I really enjoyed this project. And the image I captured is one I treasure.
This month, my self portrait is one of 11 self portraits featured on Babble! Check out 11 Women Photographers Open Up About Their Self Portraits for a New Year. You’ll not only see my self portrait, but I share how I captured the image and the story behind it!
I challenge you to take a self portrait. Think about the season in your life and how you would show that in one image. I know that in years to come, I can look back on my self portrait for 2014 and be reminded of the bright colors, chubby fingers, and busy bodies that filled my days!
