"At first, the idea of photographing yourself might seem a bit strange. But don't think of it as photographing yourself. Rather think of yourself as a puppet on a stage, which you can control and construct to say exactly what you want." //Henry Carroll from his book: Read This If You Want To Take Great Photos Of People// ...ever since I started taking photos of myself, I always feared that people will think I'm narcissistic because in all honesty that's how I thought of others who were doing the same thing. But I've learned it's so much more than that. Sure, you can use selfies for selfish reasons, but that was never my goal. This quote really sums up my opinion on self portraits. You can become whoever you want to be. The person I am here doesn't necessarily portray who I am in real life. It's not fake. It's just a part of me that doesn't naturally come up in my day to day life. When I pick up the camera, I play a part I want to express. There's truth in that because it still comes from me, but it's a blend of fiction and reality. There's no way to separate the two. It's like when little kids play pretend. Would you say they're faking it? How do YOU approach "professional selfies?" I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Alice in Wonderland vibes or should I say "wanderland"? Spent the weekend in Napa with the family and some gooood wine. I normally don't get too excited about wine or alcohol, but Napa definitely has the best of the best. I think I've seen and tasted enough for a while. Happy to be back home now! In my own bed finally. I really wanted to say something encouraging or inspirational, but nothing comes to mind. I guess as this year is coming to an end, enjoy every last minute. Look back and see how far you've come and anticipate how far you'll go. It's been a heck of a year for me, so I also need to remind myself that I've gone through a lot. I've accomplished a lot. Maybe not in other people's eyes, but I know where I was at the beginning of the year-mentally, emotionally, spiritually-and where I am now. For that, I am grateful. I hope that you're grateful for wherever you are too.
The end of a long and eventful week. Stole a Wall Street Journal from the hotel lobby for this one. Ok, I didn't steal it. It was complementary. Anyways, i read an article not from the WSJ that said setting goals apparently leads to discontentment because people equate happiness with accomplishment. So when you put happiness first instead of accomplishments, accomplishments naturally follow.* If you're not really into setting goals, you might just be happier.😆 I guess it's time to learn to find happiness in simply being. Sounds like a spiritual truth...What do you think? . . . *from the Good News Network
Inspire, impact, difference, and change are some words we heard daily. Are they just words or do they have significance? Before I explain, let’s break down the meaning of “word”. Word from the Webster means, a speech sound or series of speech sounds that symbolizes and communicates a meaning usually without being divisible into smaller units capable of independent use. Keeping that in mind let’s dive in. These words are meant for us to keep motivated. To inspire someone, means that you’ve been devoted to your passion. In turn that will inspire others to work as hard as you. To impact, is bring your message and sharing it. Instead of keeping it to yourself. Difference, there are couple ways we can look at this word. One way is making a difference in a negative atmosphere. Another way is being able to see and hear two opposing sides. Then being able to make a decision. Change, is taking one part of yourself, or something you’re working on, and making it look or feel different. It can be good or bad. • • • • • • • • #insalemoregon #madeinoregon #oregonphotographer #shotbyme #encourage
Hotel room chronicles. I'm currently on a work trip, so here's a snippet of my hotel room activities. BTS deets: I got a pretty good elbow burn from the rough bedding trying to get the shot. It was also quite the workout, but it was worth it! Also, a little makeup talk: I've been a long time fan of Lisa Eldridge and I respect her work a ton. She's an amazing makeup artist who does tons of A-list celebrities' looks and has been in the industry for the past 20 years or so. She just launched her very first lipstick collection featuring 3 amazing shades of lipstick that have a velvet-y finish on the outside. It's honestly a work of art. I've never seen anything like this before...This is not a sponsored post [sadly haha] but I just wanted to share because they're truly high quality. I especially love the color I'm wearing here: #velvetjazz If you're into makeup, I definitely recommend investing either for yourself or a friend. Ok, that's it. Oh, one more thing. I was pleasantly surprised by the lighting situation here because this is all artificial hotel room lights. I just had one overhead light turned on and the photo came out pretty well! Who says you can't take flattering photos with simple, commercial light bulbs?😉 have you tried yet?
Fashion photos wouldn't be fashion photos without the posing. Posing is the deal breaker between you loving your photos or not. On the blog, I'm talking about posing and I'm giving out some posing tips there too! https://buff.ly/2UgvAuD
Where does our identity come from? Does it come from our name? Or is it what others say we are? It’s what you’re afraid of expressing. The fear holds you back from actually experiencing freedom. Find the root if your fear and call it out. Confront it and move on. It’s important to know your identity and be confident in it. • • • • • #livecolorfully #visualsoflife #identity #vsco #vscocam
