My birthday self portraits for 2016, where I challenge myself to document a more raw and unfiltered version than in previous years.
So it’s that time of year again, and so time to do my birthday portraits.
I started taking self portraits when I was 34. Some years they are pretty much just head shots, and an opportunity to try new light set ups.
The last two years I have decided to do a more creative portrait as well as updating my head shot for use on my website and social media presence.
This year, I am super intimidated by my portrait. I knew I wanted to do something a bit more raw, but it’s so hard to see myself with no makeup and showing all my freckles (which I have never liked).
So here they are….I’m still not 100% sure how I feel about them, but that’s ok.
