365 Photo Project- A year in photos- January 1st, 2012

One of my New Year intentions is to expand my knowledge of the camera and my love for the art of photography.  I want to challenge myself to be better and faster with the camera.  Luckily I have a very good teacher here at home who is an amazing artist with the camera (and the professional)!  So I decided to challenge myself by taking a photo a day and posting it here on my blog.  When I first thought about this I thought I had gone crazy!  "How the heck will I be able to keep up with a photo a day on top of my already busy schedule!"  Well, then I realized how easy this will be...all I have to do is take my camera EVERYWHERE with me. This is not just about me getting more comfortable with the camera it is also about saving memories of my children and family.  How can I NOT do this??!!  So I may not get the perfect picture but I will get a memory frozen forever no matter what!

I hope at the end to put this all in a book.  My youngest is only 6 months old so we still have a lot of firsts happening and this will be a fun way to document it all.  Then maybe if I just love doing this...I will do it a second year.  Let's see how far I can do this.  I have faith in myself!  It may just be one photo a day or it may be 10...whatever the case I will always tell a little story with the photo.  And my regular blog posts will get squeezed in between these photo posts as well.  I also plan to throw in some film photos done with our old film cameras as well!  Believe it or not film is NOT dead!  So I hope that you have fun looking at my photos as I do taking them!

I was out of town for the holiday weekend so I am a little behind posting BUT I did take photos everyday. Which might happen throughout the year.  I give you my word that I will take a photo a day but sometimes I might not get to posting it on my blog on that exact day.  So some days I might have several posts to catch up!  What can I say....I am a mama and a mama first before anything else!

My guys in the "hot pool", as my son calls it. We were out of town for the New Years weekend visiting friends and relaxing at a cabin in one of our favorite places on the planet!  


  1. I love the idea.
    I took a basic photography course and our teacher gave us homeworks forcing us to bring our cameras wirh us always.

    I gave up, but I surely should start again (my mobile takes quite good pics and it's always with me, but it surely is not my camera)

    wish you a wonderful, healthy 2012

  2. Franny... Thank you for stopping by! I love your pics on your blog. Keep it will love doing it. Happy New Year!

  3. I did a photo a day project for two years in a row and loved it!! I didn't do it this year and I totally regret it. Going to start again next year. You will LOVE looking back at all the memories of the year. And it will challenge you to find beauty in each and every day. Good Luck to you!

  4. Thank you Anna!!! I am glad to see you here. How is that new baby of yours! I look forward to reading your blog everyday! You are awesome!
