hey guys!! welcome back to maggie’s doodles 💕
i thought it would be really fun to challenge myself to take a selfie every day in january! 😍
before now, i never took many pictures of myself – usually because i’ve been behind the camera, not in front of it!
i felt awkward for a long while taking selfies since i’m insecure about different things, so this is helping me a lot 🤩💖
this project might sound like i wanna stare at my face more, haha, but it’s actually just a self-esteem helper! i also love have more pictures of myself that i’m happy with!
let’s go! i’m gonna share them in scrapbook format.
i took a selfie
every day in
ta-da!! they definitely start looking the same after a second 😂 it’s interesting how the way you turn your head and smile changes your entire appearance! i liked taking some outside, and the others in my room. my hair’s so CUTE in that last one!!
gym memories, chilling in my room, going to the library with my siblings, and more! i definitely felt very cheery about the new year and accomplishing my goals 💖
i had some emotional days in this one. (actually they were all emotional days, but you can only really see it in a few selfies.) it felt weird to photograph the down times, but freeing at the same time 💫
things started to be figured out and settle down a bit over the course of these selfies. i got back to my goals and started feeling better!
this image ended up being so full lol! i actually missed the 29th – i realized it on the morning of the 30th. i was like ‘NUUU!’ and took a pic as fast as i could 🤣
so, what did i learn through this challenge? 😍
taking selfies is fun once you get in the habit of it! while going places, doing activities with my siblings, etc, i automatically thought about taking selfies! it’s great to have more pics in everyday settings. i love special occasion photography, but more casual photos are fun too!
even though i missed one day, i found out it’s the consistency that matters to me. i figured i’d be heartbroken if i failed, but that wasn’t the case! i still took selfies on 30 days in january, which is EPIC. i have a lot of new profile pic possibilities (nice alliteration haha) and i’m building this photography habit which i really like.
i’m becoming more camera-confident! my shyness from not being in enough photos is slowly being overcome, hehe 💖 i’m more confident taking pics out in public, taking pics while i’m still waking up, and more. it’s really cool!
thank you so much for reading! if you wanna try this challenge in february (and share the results in a post, or just lmk how it went!), i would love that! 😍
