Good morning! Happy Monday 😘
Time for honesty again.
I have spent most of my life running away from every camera, there are roughly 10 photos of me from the age of 13 to 29.
Up until early this year, I hated seeing myself in a photo. It looked wrong, I looked too big and soft and round, and it was hard for my brain to accept.
And then I was honest about this to a friend (@karolinaspirulina), and she took photos of me. She was very direct through the shoot, but she made me smile, and for the first time, I didn't hate the photos, they finally looked like me.
Now I don't run from cameras, I have more photos of me this year, than I have from every other year of my life combined. It's taken years, and required self love, endless self care, friendship (and a professional photographer...)
Do you run from any camera? Do you delete every photo or untag yourself? Could you love yourself enough to accept how you look, exactly in this moment?
