We've made it a week into this year's 365 project! It's that time of year for lots of shadows and isolated indoor light. I'm hoping we get some more snow soon so we can really get out and play! This week I challenged myself to get IN the frame and start practicing self-portraits. It is HARD. Harder than I ever imagined. Now I know how all my mom clients feel when they see themselves in pictures. Even the most beautiful mamas are critical of themselves. It is so hard to see ourselves despite the million selfies people take daily. Anyways, I'll be playing around more with self-portraiture in our daily life here and there. Here are a few peeks a our week. It's kind of a fun change (and challenge!) to return to documenting my family life after such a busy fall season of client work.
Josephine has been loving the extra attention and treats from Grammy during our visit. My mom has been keeping her out of trouble (mostly) by involving her in the cooking and cleaning the past few days. I just knew when she looked at my mom with this smile that it was THE moment of the day.
And here are a few more from this mini-story.
I am committed to completing another 365 project this year and will continue to approach it without stressing about shooting and sharing daily. But I will start this year off with this image- to remind me of the road ahead. I can't wait to look back at the end of this new year and see what we've experienced together as a family and the images I've created.
