Intimacy is important to me, but what's also important to me is the idea of self appreciation and self love. "Love yourself," I'll say to my friends when their down, but I do not heed my own words. I do not love myself. I hate taking selfies without a ton of makeup on. I hate close up shots, but here are two shots of me stripped down. They aren't uber profession, uber nice shots of me, but they're shots that do show the true essence of who and what I am.
I am not the brightest person. I'm not the prettiest, but here are two shots where I feel pretty, maybe even beautiful when I'm just lying around doing nothing. The half smirk, the parting of my lips in each shot shows my content with how I am. I don't have any makeup one. The "glow", the "highlight" everyone wants to achieve with help from Anastasia's Glow Kit is all thanks to a bunch of well placed lights. There's no editing. This is just pure, raw, me.
