I was going through old files, and can we please look at how much I’ve grown. It’s astonishing to see how young I looked! Also, apparently I was doing selfies way before I got Instagram.
February 2006, original editing.
This was January 2007, and one of my first attempts at an “artsy” photo shoot. This is the original editing I did as well.
March 2007, my prom dress. Original editing.
April 2007. If this doesn’t describe being 15-years-old, I don’t know what does. Original editing, minus the collage.
The amount of photos like these in the early years is WAY TOO HIGH. Duck face and peace symbols? With BOTH HANDS? Hello, 2007. Re-edited for quality.
July 2007, a couple weeks after I turned 16. This was at Governor’s School (6 week summer program for gifted students, I went for music). This is where I started branching out with my style, hair & makeup…thank goodness. Original edit.
August 2007. I’ve always loved this photo for whatever reason. It’s sooo early 2000s. Original edit.
A month before my 17th birthday in May 2008. I had way more freckles back then. I was also obsessed with my eyes. Original edit.
October 2008, I borrowed my mom’s shirt and jacket from the 80s.
One of the only photos I took of myself in 2009. The rest are all taken by friends. This was probably the only year that ever happened.
December 2010. Apparently all of my pictures during this year were taken by others, too. As we can see, I start to go a little more out-of-the-box and so begin my string of out-doing myself in selfies.
I started the blog in 2011, so most of my selfie-shoots since then are contained within these archives. See some of my favorites here, here, and here.
Of course, who would I be without adding a recent shot, taken today:
Hey, PS, I’m going vegan for a 2-week challenge! Check out what I’ve done so far here!
