Self portrait party!!



 


Today’s the day!! I’ve been looking forward to this day for the past 2 weeks. I did my self portraits last week and I admit I had a lot of fun doing them. I felt goofy, sure, but I started enjoying them mid way and just went nuts. Like 80 pictures nuts.

’Go big or go home’ is what I say..only I was already at home, so I guess I did both.

Confession time before I show my portraits….I kept putting them off because I felt awkward… but I knew since I was the one that suggested this whole thing, that I had to at some point. It was painful to make myself do it.

Confession #2….I’m wearing my yoga pants the whole time. I hadn’t intended to actually take pictures that day, but my hair was working for me so I threw on a couple tops and went for it.

I
promise I did actually smile in a lot of them, but these were my favorites all around.

Now its your turn!

Simple rules to link up:
1. grab my button for your post and link back here
2. link up your self portrait post {and not your homepage}
3. if you linked a post other than a self portrait post, I’ll use physical force. Ok, or I’ll just remove your link without harm.
4. have fun and check out everyone else’s hard and beautiful work

I know this wasn’t easy for some, so I really appreciate you putting yourself out there and taking picture of yourself. I’m keeping the linky party open for a few days in case you want to jump in!

Pin It Now!

Fail, well for me. But I did my pushups.

You are precious!! The lighting is so good. Our house is basically a black hole.

I'm afraid I wasn't brave enough. My poor little camera has almost given up on life and I can never take a flattering photo of myself with my iphone and one arm stretched out to try and get my giant head into the picture!!

You look lovely though!

Katie said...

So so pretty! I love this idea, em. Embracing the camera should happen way more often, huh?

Ok so I still haven't taken mine (fail.), but I'm going to on Saturday!!!! Text to remind me? :)
