The Lies We Tell Ourselves

MJCollins Photography copyright Bethany Johs "I'm not photogenic"
"I'm not sexy."
"I need to lose 10 pounds"
"I'm too old for a shoot."

I am living proof to tell you - I feel that way 100%. At (almost) 45, I often feel like my bloom is off the rose. I also know how damaging it can be to see a terrible composed photo of yourself. I am so hyper critical of every photo I am in and rarely let anyone post one of me with out my consent or approval first.

I just don't have that "natural & effortless beauty," ya know?

And I am still trying to lose my baby weight.
...ehm...from 16 years ago.... 🙃

But I swallowed my insecurities two Summers ago and trusted the photographer to do her thang...and now I have photos that I really love of myself and with a few lady-super stars in my life. (My mom, grandma and daughter.)

I got out of my own way and allowed another photographer last week to shoot a few images for her upcoming projects.

And I am considering doing a boudoir shoot this summer.

This is really outside my comfort zone -- being in front of the camera. Like, at all.

But because I know EXACTLY how you feel about having pictures taken...please know: I've got you. And you will actually love the whole experience of it and BONUS: pics that you will love of yourself or of yourself with a loved one.

Will you join me in documenting yourself exactly who you are at this very moment? Be fearless? Embrace your perfect imperfections?
