Self Portrait {Fine Art Photography, Effingham, IL}

So, I decided a while a year ago, that I was going to do more self portraits, and of course I haven't. Why you may ask?  I like having photos of myself, I love taking photos, what's the deal?  I think it's that little voice inside that likes to criticize.  "I'm not in good enough shape."  "I have too many wrinkles." "I hate my skin." "I have terrible hair." Blah, blah, blah, blah.  You know what I'm talking about ladies (and gentlemen too, go on, admit it).  What's that little voice in your head saying?  I bet it's saying something isn't it? Now, ignore it!  Who cares what it's saying. I'm betting when I'm dead and gone, my son is going to love to have photos of his mom.  He'll think I was beautiful no matter what I actually looked like. I love going back and looking at old photos of my family.  Unfortunately, ninety nine percent of our photos are on slides, so you can only view them at night or in an extremely dark room, AND you have to set the whole projector and screen up!  Smooth move mom, smooth move. Actually, to be honest, it's kind of fun when the whole family is together and we decide to do a little impromptu slideshow.  But, really mom, ninety nine percent? Heck, I like looking at old photos of anyone to be honest.  It brings you back to a different time and place, even if you didn't experience it for yourself. Old photos are cool.  I don't care what anyone says!

I know I'm rambling a bit and not really getting my point across at all, but hey, that's how I roll.  My point being I guess, is get some photos of yourself.  They're nice to have and your family will be grateful.....wrinkles and all.
