Truth and Gold

"truth, like gold, is to be obtained not by its growth, but by washing away from it all that is not gold.” 
-Leo Tolsoy 

I haven't done a proper self portrait session in a really long time. This was the last time, see, long time!  I had a lot of fun shooting these, it took awhile and lots of creativity, because I have no tripod or remote, and it was a big struggle just trying to keep the camera dry! Thankfully I had the house to myself, although a few times I had to jump out of the shower and run, bathing suit dripping, to answer the phone, that was not fun! These three shots are my favourite, the first I really love.

I was going for something raw but simple. Very clean with no makeup except for a swipe of lip colour, I think I got what I was looking for!

I'm packing up my life into two black bags again, it sucks having to leave, didn't summer just start? On the other hand I can't wait to play catch up with my Uni buddies!

Happy Thursday


  1. You're so gorgeous! And this shoot has made you my selfie-hero.

  2. Wow! I can't believe you took these yourself! They are gorgeous!

  3. Simply amazed by these shots! I would never have guessed that you took them yourself! I am torn between pic #1 and #3 as to which is my fav! They're all GORGEOUS!

  4. Stunning! Really great shots.

  5. Your portraits are SO amazing! I love them! These are just...stunning. I love the black and white, your hair cut, and the use of water. It's absolutely beautiful girl
