If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, then you may have noticed my face clogging your feed lately. Yes, I am doing a 30 day self portrait challenge. It's being put on by Elsie and Emma over at A Beautiful Mess, and just looking through some of these ladies' self portraits is enough motivation to do the challenge in itself -they are self portrait masters. Along with improving my skills of taking my own portrait, I also wanted to do this because I really feel like my face is often missing from this blog (well, obviously not lately -I got a little photo happy on our camping trip). I love taking pictures, which often leads to me only being behind the camera as opposed to in front of it, so there's that too. And, like too many of us are, I am often critical of how I look, which leads to me making silly faces for the camera or only taking pictures of myself when I feel good about my outfit, makeup, and hair. But then I'll get extra critical of myself for being vain, and never post them. Wow, what a cycle.
I plan to do a photo re-cap each week of my selfies (you know you love that word). Anyone else doing the challenge? You can start anytime -I started 2 days late and that didn't stop me:)
