"and i said to my body. softly. ‘i want to be your friend.’ it took a long breath. and replied ‘i have been waiting my whole life for this." - @nayyirah.waheed .

I've actually had this prose as my lock screen since the beginning of this year. Self-love is a journey with many many ups and downs, but it's a beautiful journey. These words continuously remind me the importance of being kind to oneself.

I've always struggled with the fact that I can never seem to stick to one theme or style for what I choose to shoot/post on here. Not because I'm unhappy with what I do post, but because I know how eye-catching a consistent feed can be. I'll post something all bright and colorful one day and something muted/faded the next... I'm always looking at other pages wondering why I haven't found my "look" yet... but maybe my messiness is mine? I'm fully aware how important it can be as a photographer to stay consistent with the work you put out, and I do stay consistent with my business work...I guess I just prefer to be a bit more random with my personal work? I don't think one way is better than the other, I think it really depends on what is best for you...ah just randomly rambling this morning, don't mind me...

I've always felt a sense of comfort and nostalgia when it comes to taking self portraits in my backyard. Struggling with social anxiety, I found it relaxing to escape somewhere that I could be completely alone, yet still at home. I took most of these self portraits in private, when my family wasn't home or in spots where I couldn't be seen. I felt vulnerable, and somehow embarrassed to ever be seen...My affinity for self portraits actually started because of this- I always wanted to shoot portraits although I was terrified of ever asking someone to let me shoot them. After years and years of shooting with myself, I've become more confident in myself, and more comfortable expressing myself around others. Even though I still struggle with social anxiety to this day, little Tessa would be very surprised how far I've come. 🙏🏼💕 (also I tried to include the posting dates of the other photos, that's why you can see the captions 😂 too lazy)
