01.2017 ― My personal work

I started the year off with the full intention of completing a 365 project. 

What is a 365 project? Simply a project where you take one photo a day, mostly of your every day life so that you can look back at these precious memories and see how you've improved as a photographer. 

Sounds fun and easy, right? Well it probably is for some people. I actually did very well in January with pictures. But here I am in June, knowing that each month that passed by I struggled a little more to pick up my camera each day. I love taking pictures, I do. But some days I take hundreds for another family and I come home wanting a little space from my camera. 

I'm not completely quitting. I still plan to take pictures and document these everyday moments of ours- some days. I still plan to take the camera along on adventures. But I don't want the pressure of having to do it day after day. I mean, if I'm being honest here I already had my 365 pictures in the first month. That's embarrassing.... 

It's funny how this project taught me a huge lesson already. I found myself spending well over 30 minutes trying to find the perfect picture for that day. Which made me take a hundred pictures of basically the same thing. After a few months, I learned the art of not over shooting. Well, most days at least. 

Anyways. I'll be posting my personal work here. Maybe monthly, maybe weekly. We'll see how it turns out. As you see, I can't put pressure on myself. I cave too easily. So follow along if you like seeing pictures of my bub, our dogs, and occasionally me. After all, Beau is the reason I fell back into this passion of mine <3
