Self Portrait Therapy

Most photographers that started out as self portrait artists and branched out to other things can relate when I say that self portraits become therapeutic in a sense. I sometimes get so lost in my own world when I am photographing myself. I am so focused on the idea in my head and how to execute it. The thing about self portraits is that you can portray the photo exactly as you imagined it. You can portray the emotion behind the idea. It works out in your favor. Self portraits help me a lot when I'm in an inspiration rut. (Although a lot of times it can be the opposite.) It can be refreshing and reviving. (I think a lot of this rant/inspiration of self portraits comes from Lexi Mire; an amazingly talented photog.)

Shells of the Sea

I got to catch up with my lovely model gal pal, Rylee the other day :) We had a raccoon friend, oddly enough, hanging out with us in the rocks. She was a preggers raccoon & actually very creepy. But it was still a fun, quick shoot.

It's only been seventeen days since my last day of my 365 and as weird as this is to admit, I miss it. I feel like drive/push to take photos has disappeared because the incentive is gone. I am sure this is a normal feeling after completing a 365 project. I told myself I'd never do it again, but who knows now. Maybe that's what I need to continue to create. Here are some photos I'm pleased with.

Savannah Jane

Savannah Jane came into town this week & we got to get in a couple shoots. I love photographing her & it takes me back to when I first started photography.
