About these photos: I’m rarely in front of the camera. I have so many insecurities about myself and I pick away at those flaws constantly or just totally ignore the photos afterwards. Yesterday, I was doing portraits of my family, so I figured I would be brave and try a couple of self-portraits. I only intended to do two or three, but then my husband hijacked the set up and unplugged my remote and started snapping away. It was very surprisingly fun and I ended up laughing a lot… more than I’ve done for a while. It feels like a positive step – there was no way I’d have got in front of the camera earlier in the year. I guess the medication is more well balanced now, which is proving to be a good thing.
