"I have a good feeling my nervousness will show through in my images."


Being a portrait photographer for years now has made me really aware of people's faces, their nuances, body-languages and their own perceptions of themselves. This project appealed to me, as for once I'd be the subject instead of the director. 


At first I felt that constant need to pose and check the lighting, but getting behind my own lens took me out of that mindset. With that and Joslyn photographing me, it was rather cathartic. I have a good feeling my nervousness will show through in my images. 


Being naked in my apartment comes pretty naturally to me, and capturing that blatant, honest moment was important. I'm truly learning to love myself, and the older I get, the more I want to live in the moment with no regrets and hang ups. I pride myself with showing people the real me, and I have a hard time not showing my emotions on my face. I was pretty happy with the whole situation, and had a hard time not showing my enthusiasm.
