Self-Portrait

Speaking of comparing yourself to others, I wasn't going to enter this week's I Heart Faces contest for 2 reasons. 1- I wont win and 2- The theme is self-portrait and ugh. I hate taking pictures of myself and everyone's pictures will be better than mine and I wont look as pretty and . . . oops. Like I said, one of my biggest struggles people.

But I'm working on it. So here's my kids entry for this week's theme - Self-Portrait.

I think I'll have to post an "out-takes" version as well because it took me about 800 pictures to get even one good one. I struggle with the holding the camera out and pushing the button. Doesn't anyone else think these cameras are just too big to do this with?! Good thing I've been working out. Or I haven't. Whatever.

Go see more self-portraits over at I Heart Faces!

  2. Smaller cameras are definitely better to do this with. I love the working out comment...I feel like that too. I think the picture is cute, just enough of you to get you in the pic but mostly focusing in on your beautiful little girl.

  5. An SLR camera is definitely hard to do a self portrait with... you could always use the timer. I hate taking pictures of myself!

  7. Yes, smaller cameras are so much easier to use! But the picture you have is simply BEAUTIFUL! It's a MOMMY MOMENT! Something so casual that they happen everyday, but when our babies are 21, we'll look back and treasure that we have that photo.

    And you are BEAUTIFUL!

  9. I got your e-mail! Thank you so much! We are actually located in Kingston. I have no idea how far from Burlington that is. I LOVE this picture of you and Jayci! You don't have to hide that beautiful face Becca! LOL
    Everyone in my household is sick sick sick. We are all feeling pretty rotten around here! Hope everyone is well in your household. I got a huge kick out of your previous post. I am in awe of that seven month old! You should not even consider comparing Jayci to that baby because she is unreal! LOL You are a fantastic Momma I can tell and Jayci will grow up loving and looking up to the Lord -- I know it :) You are the greatest roll model ever!

  17. This was hard wasn't it!! I scrolled up and you had some great pics. I love you out of focus behind your daughter. It makes a statement.

  27. i love it! so cute!

    I only have a tiny point and shoot so i used that...maybe bigger isn't better :)

  28. It looks like you do have a bigger camera, I imagine that would make things quite a bit harder. Your daughter must have her dad's eyes- I'm a brown eyed mama with blue eyed kiddos, too, lol Thanks for coming by my blog, hope to see more of you :)

  29. Thanks for the hair compliment! I LOVED your "outtakes" post. HILARIOUS! And I am TOTALLY with you on thinking that these cameras are definitely too big to take self portraits with. I do believe that is what they meant when they added the word "challenge" into this week's category. :) And just for the record...that "sexy face" picture is my favorite!

  30. Thanks for your kind comment. Your little girl. . . how adorable . . & those eyes! I love the headband! I want one for my little girl.

  31. Love it! What a doll your baby is!

    ReplyDelete
  32. very cute! and i am totally with you on how hard it is to hold the big camera out in front of me without camera shake! i seriously had to take breaks to let my muscles rest! whew! so i put the smaller 50 mm on my camera which created another problem, my arms weren't quite long enough! oh well! it's still fun!
