All the Pieces of Me by Marny Barnes

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

SO this particular picture was a self examination, and not of the doctors type(LOL). I have self confidence issues, with the way I look. Last weekend I did a shoot of a beautiful girl who had such self confidence issues it almost kept her from doing the pics. It occured to me as I was encouraging her and telling her that what she was “seeing” was not a reality , that I was a hypocrite of the worst kind. There are reasons I hide behind my camera, it’s safer there!!!

For all honesty sake. I am a 5"8" female, size 10, and 150 lbs.
Pre-babies was a different story. I am learning to love me and my body, just the way it is, imperfect, and real. SO HERE I AM.

Every flaw, and dimple of “real” curves are all my own.
Not to mention EARNED.

Posting this has caused me NO END of anxiety, but with a little encouragement from Vonne I am making the leap. So these are all the pieces of me. The good, the bad, and the flawed and the beautiful, to encourage those who are hiding to feel a little freedom.

Dreamer, mother, wife, friend and most of all…a captive audience of moments and memories…vivid, beautiful and breath taking…through the lens of my camera.

    I’d have to agree with Mark and Nick…

    But you know I do the same thing with models… and I never, ever like being photographed. As long as I have my camera in my hand I am the most confident human on earth…

    Nice work, beautiful and full of courage.

  • thank-you so much for sharing your sincerity behind the comments!

    Me too, but then I AM bloody motherinlaw thought i had no teeth for 3 months i was so shy,always had a hand,cup,bottle,sandwich,or mostly a camera in front of my “teeth” i have got teeth by the way. maybe photograper type people are very in secure?thats why we direct and hide and then display our work hoping not to be too destroyed by critiscm.(wish i could spell)and write like Jennifer B!

  • I have discovered thru this photography thing that there is beauty in all of us, and a way to bring that out with a camera if you are good enough with that camera to do so, It’s what i love most at the end of the day is the way a person feels when I give them their pics and they feel handsome or beautiful!!
