I've been taking self portaits since I first got into photography, and there was no one around to be my guinea pigs. Handing over the camera and letting someone else photograph me always feel just a tiny bit strange. My friend Kristen has a fantastic eye. I've loved following her on facebook and watching her style evolve, so when she asked me to model for her I was excited to try out being in front of a camera that isn't just hanging out on a tripod!
The last few years I've really embraced my love for being at home, especially our home. I remember being much more restless at home as a teenager, but now we have our own place that's safe and cozy, and is whatever we've made it. I love it. So I loved when Kirsten wanted to shoot some photos in our house. I think they''re my favorite. Although she does lovely outdoor shots, and I absolutely love those as well, I just feel happy looking at some of the ones in the house!
