Reno Photographer | Self Portrait

Reno Photographer | Self Portrait

In this week’s blog friends’ roundup, I’m revisiting a previous self portrait project…from 2011!!!! That seems like forever ago! Below is a self portrait inspired by the decade I was born. Can anyone take a guess as to which decade I tried to emulate in this self portrait? I cannot believe I have not taken a proper self portrait since 2011 (sorry, iPhone snapshots of my mug definitely do not count…or does it?!). Since discovering this was my last actual self portrait, I’ve decided I will make a more honest attempt at regular self portraits where I experiment with new techniques, whether that be lighting, editing, styling, etc. I have a few ideas in mind and look forward to sharing my next self portrait…a more accurate depiction of who I am currently.


When was the last time you took a few self portraits? Duck lips do not count, my friends. 😉 While you’re pondering this, you should read more about my friend Tara’s self portrait project! Visit Tara’s blog to read about her twist on this project.
