365 days ::: an entire year of pics

Day 4/365:::Scooter Girl

I love being able to start over — turn over a new leaf!

One thing that I’m especially excited about in 2009 is completing a picture a day of memories! My goal is to take pics of my kiddos every day, BUT I’m sure I’ll have other things to add to the mix, too, when those cuties aren’t around — like when I’m out of town at some super cool photography retreat or something. ;)

I’m holding myself accountable for taking a pic every day, but not blogging about it every day, SO lucky you will get to see a pic for my project at least once a week. This fun 365 day project will allow me to record the day-to-day activities of my kids as well as grow as a photographer — experiment more with exposure, aperture, editing, posing, focus, location…basically go back to just taking pics for fun (how I started!), which sometimes falls by the wayside when photography for fun suddenly morphs into a career. I LOVE LOVE L-O-V-E what I do and just know that I can only get better — practice makes perfect, ya know??? :)

Day 5/365:::Superhero

Just thought I’d share…and I can’t wait to keep this up!

Have one lovely day! ~m

    What a cool idea. I thought about that for myself, but I take so dang long to download the pics off my camera – so that’s a problem!! =) I can’t wait to see your year in photos.

    You’ve inspired me. I *may* be brave enough to do the one shot a day thing. Mine will likely be the back of my son’s head as he really doesn’t tolerate the camera! BUT I took pics of him getting his first professional haircut today and learned that is the ONLY time he’s still. So, perhaps the price of the haircut was worth it ;-)

    Captain Jack stole my pants! I give this one pic a day thing hmmmm…6 weeks.

    Just kidding, good luck!

    I just started a 365 project, too. Not specifically about my daughter, but I have a feeling she will be the subject or inspiration for most of the photos, and it will be a wonderful thing to have at the end of the year. It takes me forever to upload photos, so I hope I can keep up with this, and having your photos to look at will definitely keep me motivated!! Thanks for sharing so much!
