Why You Should Learn To Love Yourself

Self portraits have always been an odd thing to me. I'm not talking about the 'selfie.' Which captures a quite candid moment of 'just because I was feeling good.' Posing for something more formal like the pictures you see here, is very different. As a blogger I'm constantly looking at pictures of myself.
