The Bethadilly 52 Week 10 – Self Portraiture

the idea of self portraiture used to be really intimidating to me but, since becoming a mama, it is something that i find that i do quite regularly.  no one else is going to document moments of motherhood and it is up to me to build the memories with my camera, and i want to be included in those memories.  with week 10 of The Bethadilly 52 focusing on self portraiture, i took the opportunity to get in front of the camera during nap time to snap a solo self portrait.  i wanted to create something fun and carefree, a way to portray a different side of my personality.  i liked the idea of playing with the concept of movement and the idea of comparing the constrast of moving hair paired with standing on solid ground.  i demonstrate solidarity in my stance, yet portray movement through my hair.  i found the contrast between the two to be quite interesting and was really happy with how this self portrait turned out.  not to mention, there were a lot of really fun outtakes during this process…some that i will definitely be sharing later.
