It was a very busy end of January for us here! I went to Whistler for the fabulous National Association of Professional Child Photographers (NAPCP)retreat, which I highly recommend if you are looking to invest in your photography. I met up with my sweet friend Barb, who attended all the way from Maui, from Endless Summer Photography (you can see the article she did for NAPCP on vacation photos here – and yes thats my family!), and while I learned a lot, and made new friends (check out the fabulous Mandy from Flow for Photographers and her incredible skills), I was glad to be home and start to prep for the Exposure Photography Festival show I participated in. More to come in the next blog post on that!
A shout out to Framed on Fifth for their incredible job in framing my prints for the festival – they turned out amazing and I couldn’t be happier!
Here is what my favs from Week 5 looked like…
And Week 6…
Looking forward to getting caught up soon!
It’s been a busy busy February here as I participated in the Exposure Photography Festival, which I will be blogging about soon, and I haven’t been active much on the blog! I decided to try to get caught up a little on my 365 project (which I am still doing!!) and post week 3 and 4 (finally!). Here is a little of what our January looked like…
I am embarking on another 365 personal project. For those who may not have been following me, I did one in 2013, and when I finished never thought I’d do another one. Ever. But, I printed them, my kids loved looking at the photos, we moved houses, they grew up a bit more, and I was feeling the need to make sure I was getting these changes. I can’t stop time, but I can freeze a moment, create art from the everyday, and leave behind something for my kids to look back on. I learned a lot from my last 365 project, which I may share in a blog post soon if there is enough interest. I hope to learn as much, if not more, as I did last time.
I didn’t start January 1, as most do, as I truly believe you can start a personal project whenever you feel like it, and a year is a year wherever you start it from. So, if you haven’t started yet, but want to, please don’t wait a whole year for an arbitrary date. There is as much power in the NOW as there is in January 1 2016…maybe a bit more ;).
I’d love to hear what personal projects you are working on now. Whether it’s a 365, a 52 week, or some other project, I truly believe personal projects do much to recharge your creativity, challenge your skills and add to your growth in so many different ways. I hope you’ll join me on mine.
Here’s what the first two weeks of 365 days looked like for me…
