For roughly ten years I’ve thought about a 365 Daily Photo Project, but I was afraid of the commitment. It’s a huge personal responsibility to remember to document every single day. I mean, it’s not huge like, “Did I remember to feed the children?” but it felt burdensome on occasion. Overall though, it was really easier than I expected like most things that we imagine to be daunting. There were certainly days that I forgot until right before I fell asleep; and if I’m being totally honest, there were two mornings that I awoke frustrated because I didn’t take a photo the previous day so I used one from a recent date to fill the gap. There were times that I didn’t have my camera and I used my phone. It’s funny how not one of those made it into my group of favorites for this blog post. (Our phones are great in a pinch, but they’re no substitute for a good camera.) There are so many images that make me smile and I’m thankful for this project. In the end…and I have reached the end…I’m so incredibly grateful to everyone that allowed me to share part of their lives-my family specifically. I love this project, and who knows? Maybe I’ll tackle another year sometime. For now though, I’m busily creating an album of all the images! And here I sit on the first day of the new year, not having taken a photo today and it feels really, really weird.
I love documenting everyday life and I hope to do more At-Home Sessions in 2019. If you’re interested in a lifestyle photo session, let’s connect!
