Me, Myself & I

So this post is very different than what I usually do.
It’s all about me.  Yikes.  Feels very weird.  And quite self absorbed.
But there is a reason friends.
I’m participating in a photo challenge at Life with my 3 Boybarians.  
This week the p52 challenge was Self Portraits
Yep.  Shots of yerself.
If you are anything like me, there are probably a lot of photos of your kids, 
pets, husbands, grandkids and other stuff, but not a lot, if any, of yourself.
I don’t really have any current photos of myself that I like.  
But I took some time and tried my hand at some self portraits.  
So here they are.  Unedited, laugh lines, sun spots, rosy cheeks and all.
I’m embarrassed to post them.  But I will in the name of a good challenge!

  1. Great picture! You are cute just as you are!!


  2. You are beautiful! I say more posts with your pretty face :)

  3. These are great! You look adorable and I must comment on how gorgeous and shiny your hair is. Thanks for ‘putting yourself out there’. Sometimes it’s fun to step out of your comfort zone :)

  4. Great pictures! You look fabulous :)

  5. Your are beautiful. I’m sure your family love seeing you on this side of the camera. Great shots.

  6. @elaineThanks Elaine! It’s funny, I felt so embarrassed to post these – but it’s kind of liberating too!

  7. I see no lines! Just a lovely Mama.

  8. I love these Jo-Anna! You’re beautiful!!!

    What?? GFC is shutting down?? What the??

  9. Gorgeous photos! I love your hair color & bangs!

  10. beautiful untouched pictures and all…:) I just wanted to let you know that I’m having a beautiful Jo Tote camera bag giveaway that I thought you would like to enter…I usually don’t do this but I didnt want you to miss the chance to win….talk to you soon…xo

  11. great photos, as always. Love your new heading.

  12. Your pictures are great. It is so hard to take pictures of ourselves isn’t it? I don’t just mean the logistics, although they challenged me. No I mean taking pictures of me. Except it is not about me – it is about the people we love.

  13. You look great… Very natural. :)

  14. Great shots. The only way to be the real woman we are is unedited.

  15. I think they are beautiful!!!! You should do them more often! I totally get it though- I struggled with this for years. Then I “met” Elena at & she certainly changed my life when it comes to self portraits.

  16. Pretty self-portraits, really lovely. Greetings.

  17. You look beautiful – glad you embraced the self-portrait; and I’m totally with you, I have very few photos of myself. Think of them also as preserving memories for your kids for the future – THEY will like having them even if we don’t like taking them.
