Inspiration: Alex Beadon + Self Portrait Project

Over the past few weeks I have been finding inspiration in all areas of my life. Everything from books, to nutrition, to photography blogs. One in particular that I have been loving lately is the ever amazing Alex Beadon. Alex is a portrait photographer based out of England. There are a few reasons I love her blog so much but I think the main reason is that even though she is a photographer and it is her photography blog, she posts a lot about her life and where she finds her inspiration. So many photographers out there only post their photos on their blog and barely delve into any other areas of their life. And I guess that is ok if that is all they want to share. They will attract their own type of clientele. But I'm drawn to blogs like Alex's because of how open and honest she is about her dreams, her process and herself in general. Last year she completed a 30 days of self portraits project and I want to attempt something similar. Although I'm not sure I'll be able to do it every day for 30 days I do want to try doing at least two a week. We'll see :)

Here are some of my favorites from her project:

Day 26: Feeling Relaxful (Copyright 2011 Alex Beadon Photography blog - source)
Aren't they just amazing?! She really is a talented photographer. Self portraits are extremely difficult, I speak from experience.The first photo in my self portrait project will be soon. Wish me luck :)
