Ok so you ask a photographer to pick ONE picture... sigh... HOW!!! I'm inspired by artwork, photographers of others, the world around me. How do I capture that in one picture.
So I've chosen one which has particular significance to me and is of me taken by me. This photo is from September 2012. A point where I felt low about myself and my place in the world. This photograph was taken during during my first attempt at boudoir photography - and no it isn't all glam as it appears - this was taken on a 10sec timer meaning I had to focus on a spot on the bed, activate the camera, fling myself into position, smile and hope like hell it was in focus!!!!
Why is it significant... I finally realised I didn't have to be a size 10 skinny model shape to feel and look beautiful. Taking my own photograph taught me to love myself, flaws and all. Some days I still battle with that but I know there is value deep within me... and I will keep fighting to value myself every day.
