It's feels strange to be the one sitting in front of the camera. Taking direction and smiling sweetly. But I want you to know that I'm so happy I did it, I love this photo. This image alone will pick me when I feel down and in years to come I can look back and say that was me.
That at this point in my life I have smile lines, camera lines (must remember not to squint when shooting), you can see my birthmark, my smirk and my crocked nose. There's the back drop that took me 5 hours and two stiff knees to paint. One single photograph can create so many stories. This is me, as I am today, things will change, I will change. But I know looking back I can say I am PROUD OF WHO I AM.
