My 365 Project

One photo every day for a year. But why? The main reason is that time is passing by quickly; my kids are growing up. My youngest is 3 and before long, she’ll be in school full time like her 6-year-old brother. This is such a magical time for them. I want to document this year for them and create an amazing album they can look at when they’re older.

Creatively, I want to force myself to find some beauty and interest in the routine of our daily grind. I want to stop getting hung up on perfection and take photos of some realness. Example — instead of wiping the chocolate ice cream off my son’s face before I take his picture, I want to photograph him WITH the chocolate ice cream face, because in 20 years, we’ll look at that photo and reminisce about how every day after school he asks for chocolate ice cream.

On the topic of perfection, I’m hoping to take photos even if my house is messy, even if the light isn’t great, and even if I don’t feel like it.

Will I survive all 365 days? I really don’t know. But I’m going to post each photo below. Wish me luck!

Update: After reaching 100 days, here are my best tips for anyone trying to complete a 365 project!
