I am super uncomfortable having my picture taken. I avoid the lens as much as possible. I thought was pretty okay with there being very little photographic evidence of my existence. . . but after returning from an awesome trip with my family and realizing that there is only one picture of me with my nieces, I was pretty bummed.
So, when A Beautiful Mess (one of my favorite blogs) put forth a 30-Day Self Portrait Challenge, I knew I had to take it up. The photo above is Day 1 and I hate it, but I am going to get over it. . . I'll post the results once a week or so and hopefully by the end of the 30 days I won't cringe or try to hide when it's time to take a picture.
