A Favourite Photograph

Day 17 – A Favourite Photograph of Yourself and Why

I have previously shared some really special photographs of me on this blog.  One with my parents on holiday, another with me and my dad and my favourite ever photograph of my friends and I.

When asked to choose a photograph just of myself though, I struggle.  I used to systematically detag every photograph of me that I didn’t like on Facebook (so about 99% of them).

Embracing who I am and what I look like has been a bit of journey.  I have chosen a photograph though, but this one in particular marks the start of acceptance. 

This photograph was taken for a review of a SimplyBe dress.  This was the first time I had worn so many colours and such a loud print, and I LOVED it.  It is probably the first genuine smile in front of a camera since I was a little girl, because back then you don’t care do you?


So yes, this is definately my favourite photograph of myself.  Not because of a right camera angle or even the way I look, but more what I was feeling when it was taken.  Happy and hopeful.  You can’t ask for more.

  1. Gorgeous x You look so happy xx

  2. That's such a lovely photo of you! The outfit looks amazing on you, and you truly look happy!

    Until recently I used to detag myself from all FB pics, too, and would freak out if someone had tagged me hours before I saw them myself! I will sometimes detag myself now, but nowhere near as much as I used to xx


Thank you very much for commenting. I may not reply to them all but I read every one and it is very much appreciated.
