Why selfies for Self-Love & Self-Care?
Photography is a captured moment that silently speaks a thousand words.
It’s like philosophy, it tells many stories simply from one perspective.
& so it does in different angles, different shades, different filters
A mystery behind every shadow, an intent behind every color.
A clue that is very well a hidden mystery.
It is a tease with very little promise,
the number one cliffhanger.
It is the keeper of secrets or the tatter-tell that babbles.
Most importantly, it is a story without WORDS.
An unspoken language.
Why photography for self-love & self-care?
Long ago I was challenged, & for a moment, I forgot about myself.
My life. My feelings. My thoughts.
Everything about me was a mystery.
I allowed my love for someone else to weaken me.
I allowed my admiration for someone to blind me.
I should have done what was right for me.
The one I should have been taking care of…was me.
I did not want to be selfish then, so I’m sorry to be selfish now.
I was hurting for a long time, & when I finally chose to move on, I felt relieved.
I was finally able to accept my own mistakes.
& then, I allowed myself to embrace my own inner flame.
Fruitful Living became the seed.
J.Eli’s Photography became the tree.
SelfiePro, the creation, the fruit.
I created life with my passion.
I embraced my skills & I learned new ones.
I loved the strength it gave me.
Photography was my passion.
Dance, my passion.
Art, my passion.
Music, my passion.
& the list goes on.
But what I love the most about photography… is…
The way it makes me feel
& the way I can make people feel.
I feel like I can see beauty in its raw form,
& I capture it.
I work my magic to accentuate any features,
& I transform it into something even more astonishing.
& you can see it!
Their story. Just a moment of it.
“However, SelfiePro is very personal."
SelfiePro is about capturing myself in my own habitat.
Sharing my thoughts [mental],
sharing my feelings [emotional],
& sharing my body [physical].
Body, mind, & soul…in the form of a still moment.
My troubles, so hidden away that nobody will ever know.
When I’m in my zone, I glow, & I love to let it show.
And well, I like to see that glow in action.
That’s why I take selfies.
I mastered it & now, I teach it.
I teach people how to follow their passions through my own,
& how to keep a record of their own growth.
A timestamp in the form of a photo.
A record of their transformation.
I use the magical properties of the earth, the wind, the ocean, & my fire to create, manifest, & enjoy!
I practice & master my craft…on myself.
& then I reap from my own hard work.
In order to reward myself for my successes, I pamper myself.
[Self-Care][Mental, Emotional, & Physical]
To celebrate my own growth, I dance with myself.
