you'll see the scars and bruises
meant to be the focus in this portrait.


reference photos for ~BarefootedBaroness
i'll probably re shoot, with a more appealing background;
but who knows...

imperfection is beautiful.

1.) the bruises aren't from anything in particular; i just get random cuts/bruises now that my immune system is shot from this weird mystery illness. the scar is from a little childhood body doesn't like to heal properly; and my scars turn more red/purple than white. awesome. especially since i'm soooo pale.

2.) those shoes are from my friend alicia; she always gives me the best stuff. i swear. she knows me too well.<3

3.) i'm pumped; i don't look as thin here; yay for decent angles!

You're so delicate and than bam! big dark pointy shoes.

I think you are one of the sexiest and most beautiful girls I've ever seen, the little details upon your body do not at all disregard it of its truest beauty. Nothing is perfect and to me, upon what I see at this picture, your wounds actually create a different kind-of-noir form of visual artwork, and I love your pale tone and blond hair! You're dropdead gorgeous!! :O

onegneissguy Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2010
Sometimes imperfections, combined with such stunning and pure unadulterated beauty, can create something even beyond mere perfection. This shot is amazing <3

"3.) i'm pumped; i don't look as thin here; yay for decent angles!" ? wtf ? why you write that ... :(
ClaraMaeStudios Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2010  Professional Photographer
...because it's true? :|
acidmaker Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2010
hoh noooo... why ... how you can think that ? .. can I mail you ?
ClaraMaeStudios Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2010  Professional Photographer
haha what do you mean, how can I think that!? It's a fact. :p
I've come to terms with it. My mystery illness has taken away my normal body..
usually 120/125, I was a mere 95 or so when this photo was taken.
many times, you can tell I'm that small, and it breaks my heart;
I can look at this image because it doesn't seem as bad to me.

you can email me if you'd like. (:

wow, I love the composition of pale tones! it's very expressive :)
heilummahubar Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2009
You definitely don't look too skinny. You look like an early 60s Hitchcock-esque pulp art starlet with some strange unexplained secrets. Or that was the impression I got. :)
IMustBeDead Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2009  Hobbyist Photographer

I don't see any scars, but the bruises are kind of pretty in a sick (me not you) way.

excelent work
arisuart Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2009
a very striking pose.
KillerOfSoftMen Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2009
I wish I understood the mentality of someone who shoots many nude pictures of themselves, or lets someone shoot them. I think it would be an interesting study.
ClaraMaeStudios Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2009  Professional Photographer
I'm not sure if this is sarcasm or not.

But yeah, that would be an interesting study,

and for the record, I don't shoot many nude pictures of myself; at all. so, I don't know why you're leaving that comment HERE; when it's the ONLY nude photo in my wholeeee gallery, and it's super tasteful and more emotional than anything?

and, why I did it was for a few reasons.

I'm comfortable with my body. regardless of it's imperfections. the fact people think I'm too pale. too skinny. blah blah. I was always so insecure about myself I could never even look people in the eye for years; let alone shoot a nude, and finally, when I dropped my insecurities, and I realized how beautiful the human canvas is, I said why not shoot it, for an artist who wants to sketch it, and share it with the world?
KillerOfSoftMen Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2009
I was being very serious, actually, and I did not look at your gallery to find many nudes. I ran across this image by chance and tossed out a thought, I don't take issue with your body, or what you do. That is your business, I simply would like to know. You really shouldn't be so defensive; of the thousands of faceless bodies on here this is one of the few tasteful ones.

So, what the hell?
ClaraMaeStudios Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2009  Professional Photographer
w=well you didn't really say anything like that in your comment; i'm not a mind reader!! how was i to know from your comment you thought it was tasteful? it was just a question about why women do it--so i answered. sorry? i won't reply next time. geeze.
KillerOfSoftMen Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2009
Haha! It's all good :) Sorry, prob should have made that clear..

PreciousLittle Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2009  Professional General Artist
I remember seeing this photo before. You are so striking and fragile seeming. I agree, imperfections are beautiful, at a point they are an extension of us, our life, they are truth. I generally leave mine in my images, thank you for sharing:)
