Thank you Megan Axelsson Photography for being our first guest of 2015! 'Self' was a fitting theme for January, while many of us are taking this time to sit back and reflect, maybe reconcile or redo, and move forward in our work and personal lives. A self portrait forces us to see vulnerability, frailty, strength, so many things....whatever it may be, thank you for sharing these brave images. I know that Megan had a difficult time in choosing the top ten and a winner with the very personal nature of 'self'. Congrats to all of the winners!

I was so excited to be able to guest judge this week at Fantastically Flawed!
I just really think this page/community Rocks!
When Paige was going to start this page and had told me about it,
I thought, what a truly amazing idea.
So many people are afraid that their photos don't follow the rules.
I personally am terriﬁed of my images that are blurry and out of focus
and this page has helped me to start embracing imperfections,
realizing that they are in fact Fantastic.
First I have to say it was such an honor and so much fun!
I definitely love the "selﬁe".
I think taking a picture of yourself now and again
is not only great to have for your children, family and friends
but most important for yourself.
There is so much freedom with a self portrait,
freedom to try new ideas, have fun and just be You.
The entries this week BLEW my mind.
I think we all inspire each other and I am deﬁnitely feeling
inspired by all the wonderful work here this week.
While I could only pick 11 photos, seriously,
everyone's work was amazing
and you should be Proud of yourself for tackling the some times dreaded "selﬁe".
I hope you feel as inspired as I do to go out and try some more!
I know a lot of people get scared of taking pictures of themselves
so I am planning a blog post about tackling your fears
that I will post to my page later this week. :)
Ok now for the good stuff!
Congrats to everyone, I found so many new fabulous photogs to follow this week!
Thank you for having me, big puffy virtual hugs to everyone!
