One of the things that I’ve been very open about on this blog is my struggle with my body image. It’s something that God is still helping me through and an area that I’m realizing I am constantly going to have to fight with and surrender to God. The wounds with how I view my body go pretty deep, but I believe that praise God, I’ve been making some huge strides, lately.
I believe one of the things I couldn’t stand is also one of the things that’s been helping me grow in this area, which is self-photography. What I mean by that is, you may have noticed that I (well – my husband) have been taking more pictures with myself in them, lately. As someone who stopped liking being on the other side of the camera because of body issues, this was a big jump for me. In one way I did it because I wanted to understand what it felt like being on the other side of the camera more so I can help people when I eventually start shooting more portraits of people, it became a way for me to become more comfortable with myself. Allow me to share some of the ways in today’s post.
