Keeping away as much as possible from calling these images ‘selfies’ because I think there’s such a stigma with that word and associations with being ‘vain’ and ‘self centred’ when taking images of yourself, whether that be with your arm outstretched or an iPhone on a tripod (like these images). I think self portraits are a good way to express self love, and that’s nothing to do with being in your underwear, bikini, dressed up or in pyjamas. Self love is always a difficult one to talk about as it means different things to everyone, I’m comfortable in my pants and that where I feel best. Whereas someone else might feel complete self love in a bad ass suit or leather jacket or even fully covered up. It’s each individuals decision of what makes them feel 100%.
My bedroom faces west so at about 4pm the sunlight shines in so nice and softly I thought I’d take the opportunity to use it. This set is from Lara Intimates (gifted) and it’s so comfortable, I recently got measured and realised i’ve been wearing the wrong size, so now I’m in my correct size I couldn’t feel better!
I’m thinking of doing a ‘Self portrait:’ series and each time briefing thinking about a different topic to so with the self. Please do let me know if you have an ideas along this vein.
