As I reflect back on 2010, I do wish I would have had my camera handy a little more often for documenting my own crazy, beautiful life. The times last year that I became really busy with weddings and all that they entail, I feel as if I photographically missed out on some of my son’s (now 18mths old) little ‘firsts’ and just everyday antics. I can’t believe the time has passed so quickly. So, for 2011, I’ve decided that Becky Higgins’ Project Life is just the motivation I needed to never put my camera away!
I have embarked on Project Life for four reasons. One, I’ve found myself wrapped up in pleasing clients photographically that I’ve put my camera aside for my life, the one thing I shouldn’t do. I’ve already captured moments that wouldn’t have been documented photographically otherwise because of Project Life. Two, to do something creative, because well, I just need to be creative with my life. It’s a part of me! I used to scrapbook, however I have no time for that anymore, and with the urgency I’m feeling to capture this little boy’s childhood, this gives me an easy creative outlet. Three, to challenge myself to be more creative with my camera as well, which can, in turn, only help my business. And four, to connect more with God in being more appreciative of this great life he is affording me!
I have also become a part of a private blog group which consists of 6 ladies so far who are all doing the same. Three from South Carolina, two from Arkansas, one from Idaho, and 1 from, hmm… not sure yet. It’s neat to see the ramblings that are happening the span of the United States. I love this and our little group so much already!
I hope you enjoy along the way too as I will post a collage of each weeks photos for my faithful blog readers! Here are the first 3 weeks. We are well underway since January 1. If you would like photo explanation, just comment
