This year I’ve been inspired to do a personal project about my family. There are lots of amazing photographers out there participating in wonderful projects about documenting their children and their lives. This is one of my favorites : you are my wild
I love the idea of a monthly project and decided that for my project I would take one portrait of each of my children each month. My hope is that it will be a small record of their yearly change and our life this year. I want these portraits to be completely real, as in, messy house, tired kids, and busy life kind of real.
I always love a good portrait, you know, with unstained shirts and beautiful backgrounds but as I find myself looking back through all our family pictures I realize that I am drawn most to the candid shots. The ones that include the tantrums, the chaos and the reality of our life. Because I know that I will miss those things the most and while there are days that I wish I could run away from the intensity of it all, I don’t want to forget any of it.
So here are my four in January. Just being.
I would love for you to follow along with me as I attempt to keep up with this! Can’t wait to share more.
