One of the perks of being a photographer is getting to take beautiful images of your children. I love being able to document their growth, simple moments while they are playing, the smiles, the tantrums - all of it. Sometimes, though, life happens and I feel too busy to pause and photograph the moment. One of my goals this year is to embrace the chaos, the good moments, the messy house (or never ending laundry) and to photograph them. That means bringing my camera to some of our adventurous Target trips, to the kids' soccer games or park adventures, and breaking it out more at home.
I started a 365 photo project on January 1st. I'll be taking at least one photo a day to help document my kids' lives, to push my creativity, and to help me grow as a photographer. I encourage everyone to try this for one year. You'll look back at the end of the year and be so happy that you captured these memories.
