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

—different EVERYTHING!!!


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.


¡Silencio!

Listen [read].



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.

Brief, even.



“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.

[Self-Care][Mental, Emotional, & Physical]


& to keep track of my own progress, I take selfies.

[Self-Love][Mental, Emotional, & Physical]


I challenge myself to find new ways to feel amazing,

& I do it by making art out of myself.


I talk to myself in the mirror about my insecurities

& then later, I portray them artistically.


I embrace my feminine by flaunting my assets.

Yes, I do it discreetly.


I embrace my sexuality by making myself vulnerable.

No, I do it sensually.


I love myself wholly & allow my inner glow to shine like a thousand stars.

Brightly, lightly, kindly, yes, I see myself going far!


Floating away!

How amazing it is to truly love myself.


That’s self-love!


Oh, one last thing.


I make fun of myself.

& you would too!


I make fun of my own mistakes.

In life & in photos!


Some selfies just don’t come out right.

& it’s ok, it’s alright.


We just keep the ones we like.
