Self-love & Self-Portraits

It's almost Valentine's Day, so how about a moment of self-love?  Last year I made the resolution to take more self portraits because I often don't like how I look.  That summer while traveling in Europe I decided to make use of some dramatic window light at the place I was staying at and take some nude self portraits as an exercise in accepting my self/body as it is. 

The experience was a nerve-wracking reminder of how difficult it is to be vulnerable in front of the camera, but eventually I found my groove and made a few soulful and erotic photographs I'm proud of.  Thanks for reading, and I hope you take a moment to love yourself as well.
