Little Bit o' Me

Ashley's self portraits are so darned inspiring.
So the other day I gave it a go.
...and now if I die tomorrow my kids will have ten whole photos to remember me by. ;)


Wow. I have waaaay more wrinkles and freckles than I thought!
In case you're wondering, my eyes really are that color.


This one's my favorite. I think it's the detail in my hair.
I used my 50mm for this shot - which you probably already know does not auto-focus with my camera body. It made it a bit more difficult to get these shots, but I love my 50!

The Daily Wyatt


Yes, I have tattoos.
And yes, that's plural.


Of course I must include one really out of focus shot...'cause that's how I roll.

I'm also linking up with Selfie Saturday in celebration of actually having guts to take these! :)


  1. Great set of photos!! Favs are 2 ad 3!!
    Enjoy your day!!

  2. Beautiful! Love the softness of each of them!

  3. Wow. You've got the most amazing eyes.

    These are wonderful shots, Katie. Well done.

  4. I love these. You are gorgeous. I love your hair!

  5. Love these, your eyes are such a pretty blue.

  6. Screw wrinkles. You look amazing. And your eyes have the prettiest shade of blue.

    Have a nice day, miss Katie. :)

  7. Okay...I'm inspired. I love the feel of these's kinda whimsical and almost candid vs. my staged shots. I'm going to give this a whirl. Love love love.

  8. So good to see you! I have wrinkles and freckles, lots and lots of them, but it's best to just embrace them! what are your tattoos? I have one that I got when I was 18 and it "bled" and my whole foot is now blue. So pretty. ;) I do really want another though, just can't find exactly what I want.

  9. Katie, you are beautiful and precious! Those eyes are like an ocean blue. Glad you did this, now I can have a better idea of who is behind the lens :)

  10. I love them all, you are so beautiful!

  11. I love these photos! Your freckles MAKE you! The light is adorable, too!
    Great first step into self-portraiture!

  12. Wow. These are gorgeous! I agree that Ashley’s self-portraits are fantastic and these are equally beautiful!! :)

  17. Beautiful eyes! And love the redhair and freckles ... same as my youthful self and children!

  18. Hi, beautiful!! :)

    Wow -- what big beautiful eyes you have!! (but glad that your teeth are normal sized! haha! get it???)

    What a sweet gift to give your children: some pics to remember you by! Yay!!

    And your wrinkles look like smile wrinkles -- so that's good. And I think freckles are adorable! ha! Isn't it interesting how different we look in a pic then in a mirror???
