I’M DOING IT AGAIN! I’ve been procrastinating on this for awhile now, but I’m finally starting up my weekly self portrait project again. ( #katyweaver52). WHY?! A lot of reasons.
First, I’ve been feeling SUPER disconnected with social media lately, and I wanna fix that. The people online are actually real people (well, mostly haha) and I freaking LOVE real people! By giving myself a platform to share vulnerable shit every week, I end up actually connecting with people in SO much more of a real way online and it makes me so much happier as a person! To see social media as a place to connect instead of a place to compare is HUGE.
Second, I want to reconnect with my SELF. Whoa. Yeah. How many of you out there fail to check in with yourselves very often? You know, when you get SO busy and wrapped up in your life and all the to-dos and social activities and making it all work that somehow you forget to breathe, take a step back and ask yourself “how am I actually doing today?” That is me in a nutshell. But there was something about pausing to actually take a stupid photo of my stupid face once every week last year that really made me stop and reflect on where I was at during that week, during that moment, and actually CHECK IN. It was liberating and eye opening all at once. So much that I want to do it again, even though it’s seriously a pain to do it every week haha.
So, that’s where I’m at. I’m ready to be more reflective again. I’m on the cusp of a lot of big exciting changes in my life (like re-branding my business! And getting married!) and I’m stoked to reflect more each week and share a few of those weird Katy thoughts with all of you. Can’t wait to see how this goes! #katyweaverphotography#fearlessphotographers#selfportraitproject#52weekproject#makeportraitsnotwar
