2017 PROJECT 365


I decided to try another 365 day project this year, the last time I attempted it, it was 2014 and I only got a couple months in and I was falling behind. For me it's not tough to take the images, it's the downloading them, editing them and getting them up every day that I struggle with.
If you aren't familiar with what a 365 project, it is taking a picture every day (or weekly) for the year. The premise is to document the moments in your life (for most) and also as a photographer to grow, find your style or document personal work. As a photographer I am always wanting to learn, to grow, to evolve. I am a photographer because it has been a life long passion, and I never want to be complacent or feel like I'm "there." The days are not long enough for me to accomplish all the things I want to in this field, it's a journey and it feeds my soul. 

I hope you will join me and follow along my journey. Maybe you will be inspired to start your own 365 project!

As the Holiday season winds down, I wanted to capture some images of the lights in the trees, my son wanted colored lights this year (I usually do white) and I must say that the colored lights were very warm and happy. I was testing out my new prism I got for Christmas. I look forward to using that more this year.

Today Ethan wasn't feeling well and I was going to keep him home but school ended up being called off because of weather so he spent his time here in his favorite place; my bed with his iPad. I enjoy these quite moments we still have of snuggling on the bed and just relaxing. He is going to be 9 soon! His last year in the single digits and he is my last child so I am holding on tight and not looking forward to the day he no longer wants this.

"Matty" One of my rescue cats. He picked me when we went to the shelter, he did not leave my side no matter what room I was in and he has just been a love ever since. He is so sweet and lovable!
