Self Portrait: ‘Il Mio Amore’

This week was love week and we ended on Valentines Day. It seems only fitting that my self portrait for this week be about love and so I present you with this piece entitled, ‘Il Mio Amore’. With red lips, red nails, and red flowers in my hair I hold on to what I love so much in life. My husband, my partner, my lover and friend. Thank you Ryan for being the love of my life (and of course for sitting for me while I kept running back and forth from the camera to capture this image).

I am also thinking of doing what I did back in 2012 and doing themed prompts for the self portraits every week.  Would love to know what you think.  Would you like to have a weekly prompt given out a week in advance?

I try to do one every week and post on a Saturday.
If you would like to link up with me, add this button to your blog.
I would love to see your photography!
Get out those tripods, remote controls, and set your self timer!
How It Works: It must be a ‘self portrait’ and does not need to be an image you took this Saturday. Feel free to link up to past Self Portrait posts in your blog. This link up will be every Saturday so feel free to use that as your motivation to learn more about your camera, hone in on your photography skills, try out new post processing techniques, and let your creative spirit come alive. Join the Self Portrait Saturday challenge!

    Another gorgeous photograph! I love the red pop of colour. I think themes would be interesting, maybe not every week but once in a while?

    That is when you know someone loves you. He got dressed up and stood in place while you took a bunch of pictures. I always know Ethan loves me when he stands patiently around while I put him through things like this:) Hope you had a lovely Valentine’s Day!
