Self Portraiture as Medicine, Part 1

I have been involved with several photography projects, yet the most rewarding and healing are my self portraits. The work is hard. The prompts push me into uncomfortable places and spaces. I dig in deep, wrestle out the emotions and rise up like a Phoenix. I share my story with photographs. 


Over at She is Three, Bella and Jennifer and myself write monthly stories about our own personal walk thru this life. We begin with half a sentence, individually interpret it and shoot a self portrait with a back story. We invite followers to join us in the healing waters of self portraiture every month with #sheisthreedotcom . We have also been featured in the gorgeous, soulful Bella Grace Magazine

and finally, I have been a monthly contributor for The Secret Message Society Zine

I so enjoy seeing your beautiful work. Your photos capture a feel of ease and acceptance of not only your spirit but your physical self. I see your self portraits and think I should really try to do a self portrait series, then I am self defeated by a ridiculous need to look younger than I am.
