I’m catching up with my monthly self-portrait sessions.
In December we got the life back for a couple of weeks, and it was a really happy time with clients’ shoots, family, friends, Christmas tree and lots of delicious food (how could I not mention the food!). Photographing myself wasn’t a priority for sure!
In January though, I did three self-shoots! Because…hello, lockdown number 3.
Oh boy, life is so weird at the moment. I don’t know what to expect anymore. I mean everything comes to an end eventually, but 2020 kind of proved it wrong.
The other day I was exercising in front of the mirror and caught myself thinking: maybe, just maybe, I’ll have a chance to bring this fit (I’m getting there)) body to the beach this Summer… Maybe not. I guess I stopped hoping. And started to live in the moment. With no plans. No strategies. Just doing whatever brings me joy.
I’m studying photography and art, exploring natural light and re-thinking the way I shoot.
I want my sessions to become a real therapeutic experience for women where they can be anyone and anything. With no fear, shame or apologies.
I came to the point when I want to photograph more weird than beautiful, more flaws than perfection. Because let’s be honest, we’re made of weird and flaws and that’s what makes us amazingly unique.
Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there, ladies! I know it’s scary to truly let go of what others think, say and believe about you, but only by doing scary shit you get or do what you want 😉
Truly yours, K.xx
