Summer of Selfies

Celebrate the Summer of Selfies with rukristin and the Awesome Ladies

June 1st through August 31st

This summer we are celebrating our stories through the art of selfies. Taking selfies are important for a myriad of reasons that we are thrilled to dive into this summer. They are a representation of who you are right now, wherever you are. You have the power to take these photos so that you can have more representation of yourself in this world; because you are awesome, and we need more you.

Summer is an awesome time to practice selfies — and yes, it is a skill that takes practice. The weather is warm enough for fun outfits. There is lots of light outside (natural light is so beneficial). It’s prime vacation/adventure time (finding cool settings is fun). Throughout the summer, we’ll be diving into all things selfies here at the Awesome Ladies Project.

In addition to everything mentioned below, there will be additional pop-up selfie-related content on the Awesome Ladies Blog, Awesome Ladies Instagram and Awesome Ladies Newsletter throughout the summer. This summer is going to rock.
