Those of you who know me personally will understand how much I dislike being in front of the camera, but I’m getting much better at it.
I’m making a conscious decision to exist more in photos. To document myself and my body at different periods in life. Every month I can look at a photo and notice something different about my appearance and it’s not something that’s ever going to stay the same.
Documenting your journey through life is so Important no matter where you are along it. Life IS a journey and you shouldn’t wait around for when you “reach” a certain goal to document it. One day you will look back and realised what your missed out on. I can look back through photos where I’m completely missing and it makes me feel sad. Or I’ll remember something that happened but it was like I was never there. DON’T DO THAT TO YOURSELF.
In the last couple of weeks I’ve put myself out there and volunteered for a few virtual boudoir photoshoots and got vulnerable with it. ITS BEEN SO REFRESHING AND UPLIFTING. Seriously.
I urge you all to get out of your own damn way and do the thing. You will not regret it.
