As you are likely aware, beyond my work with photographers, I enjoy taking self portraits. The process is simple; I decide to take a photo, set up my iPhone press shoot and the delay activates. I never know exactly when the camera is going to go off which is how I manage to capture candid style images.
It doesn’t always work of course. There are times when I am feeling self conscious or I am experiencing body image issues. During those times I find I tend to pose more so the quality of the photo honestly kinda stinks. As a Photographer, I love capturing authentic moments rather than posed moments.
Yesterday the sun was shining through the windows of my air bnb unit and it felt amazing. I started by taking a self portrait of an everyday moment; me drinking my morning cuppa java. Next I was just standing in front of the window, coffee in hand and finally I took one of me dressed for my day.
What I found interesting is how comfortable I look and feel when I am naked. Of course, I have to be in the right place with the right people, but in general, I am more comfortable naked than I am textile (clothed). Since I started this journey a lot of people have said that they would love to Get Naked with me…
So I am starting to offer what I refer to as “Body Freedom Sessions”. If you ever want to let go of your inhibitions and get naked with me (on an emotional and physical level with a non-sexual focus) feel free to email me:
I hope you are having a beautiful day!
From my heart to yours,
