Our Life in 52 Weeks

a photograph is the pause button of life

I started a 52 week project to help push myself in photography with editing, angles, use of light, etc.  BUT I also do it for my daughters.  I can remember as a little girl going through all my old photo albums looking back at pictures from when I was young with my siblings.  I now have those albums so my daughters can look through them, they enjoy seeing mommy at the same age as them doing the same things as them (playing with chalk, dancing, soccer, really just being a kid)

My passion for photography started with them..and it will always revolve around them.  They are my muse, so when I see them playing nicely together or cuddled up reading a book I am always going to run and grab my camera, because I want them to have these memories frozen in time so when it is a distant memory they can look at a photo and have glimpse into their past.  I also do it for myself...life can get busy and so when I am old and grey I want to remember these moments of their childhood.

Love your family, spend time, be kind & serve one another. Make no room for regrets. Tomorrow is not promised & today is short.

This is just a small fragment of the images I have taken in the last 33 weeks, and my 52 week journey will end in December...I am loving this growth and look forward to seeing what the rest of the year has in store. One thing is for sure...next year I want to travel more and show my girls what this world has to offer!

when you photograph people in color it is more about their clothes, but when you photograph people in B&W, you photograph their souls
