Self portrait

I used this self portrait as my profile pic for awhile.  It was taken last summer when I was pregnant with Hank, when we were living in Nebraska and when I couldn't stand to have my picture taken.  Wait...that last one is still true...   Well, ever since babies attacked my womb, that has been true.  Someone made a comment to me that my kids would look back and not see pictures of me and they wouldn't know I was there...well I WAS there...a LOT...so I took a few pictures.  It turned out to be one of my favorite photos of myself.  Someone psychoanalyse that...why would I like only photos where my face is half hidden and never straight on....hmmm

Check out more girls being brave and showing their self portraits at i heart faces!

I love this angle too - and I love the mood. It seems so reflective. Nicely done.

It would be the same view our Heavenly Father has, when He looks at you with loving tenderness from on high ;-)

Love the tones in this photo and it has that lovely soft look, gorgeous!
The way you edited this shot makes it such a timeless treasure. It is rare that we moms show up in the pictures, especially when we are the self appointed historian, but we need to remember to jump in there with the kids from time to time.

the angle is great. and I think we are our own worst enemy. I was like that, granted i've never had children, but I've had enough people in my life drag me down about my looks. But I'm a strong woman of God, and I just got over it. :)
You are beautiful
