The Universe Within

So, most of you know that I struggle with body image and low self-esteem. I’m not the most confident person. Lately, I've been feeling EXTREMELY insecure about myself. Everything about me has been bothering me. I’ve just not been very happy with what I see in the mirror from things on my face to parts of my body and just me as a whole person. A lot of the time I don’t feel good enough in every way possible. As much as I try to love myself it’s not always easy and I have low times like this. I was recently taking pictures for someone, in the same way as what you see below and I decided to join in and force myself to take these pictures as a way of trying to love myself. As I posed for the shots and listened to the camera click I just felt so nervous and scared of what the pictures were going to look like. But when I did look at the shots I was actually very happy about it and loved how they turned out. After this shoot I decided to try to keep a promise to myself that anytime I’m at a point like this in my life where I’m not feeling great about myself that I'm going to try to force myself to take some type of creative shoot of myself so that I can remind myself of the beauty and love that I have within me.

If anyone is curious some photos were taken on a phone and the others were taken with my Canon camera with a 50mm lens. I decided to add some photos that were taken on the phone even though they aren't the highest quality because I liked them and it was just too hard to choose what pictures I liked. Some photos are similar looking but like I said it was hard to choose which I liked best especially because the coloring of the universe would change everytime the picture would get taken which I loved.
