I took no pictures today, but I wanted to post a few pictures that Jessica took of me in Las Vegas. She, and several other photographers, have told me that it is not okay to be scared of being in front of the camera. It makes sense - how can I make someone feel comfortable on the other side of my camera if I can't even do that myself? So, after lots of complaining, I really tried to relax while she was literally inches away from my face with her camera. To me, she is a miracle worker. I actually really like several of the pictures that she took.
After all of this happened, Jasmine Star posted this blog post. And I thought to myself, wow, it really is okay to feel beautiful when you are in front of the camera. I felt empowered by her words and I am going to start making a conscious effort to have more pictures taken of myself, especially with my family. Thanks Jessica, for the beautiful pictures, and thanks Jasmine, for the inspiring words.
