Photo Journal Self-Magic Portraits started as a way to get pictures for my website. This turned into my creative practice, spiritual practice, self-care, beauty ritual and the best kind of alone time. One rule: Stretch on that learning curve and don’t stop unless there is a surprise! I set up a corner near a window and I use only natural light and 5-8 minutes worth of hair n’ makeup. My fave props are paper, tutus and other toys found in the playroom. If I am lucky, I get one good image out of each playshoot. If I am super lucky, I get a small series. Each session is under two hours, from start to cleanup. After that, I have to go pick up the kids! I Believe… you love to pin?
