I take self portraits every month or so for outfit posts or to practice lighting/posing, but I rarely have a professional photo taken of me by someone else. In fact, my senior pictures were the last time I had someone take a professional photo of me and I didn't even like those pictures. Haha.
This day with Rachel and Amy was eye-opening because I realized I'm really not good at being photographed. It may seem like it because they were coaching me, posing me, and talking to me the whole time but it was still hard. I'm glad I can finally understand the awkwardness a client may feel sometimes, especially if I'm not talking to them. Yikes. Thankfully, Rachel and Amy and I all understand that being confident in yourself and your abilities to pose and instruct behind the camera is so important. So thank you both for a learning experience and also, some photos that I actually like of myself!
