a photo everyday of 2018/ week: 1

Hello! Welcome to this new, big, exciting, and sometimes very overwhelming if I think about it too much project I am taking on for 2018! After being so inspired by the work of one of my favorite Maine family photographers, Kristina O'brien and her own 365 project, I decided to try it out for the year. Everyday for all the 365 days of 2018 I will take a photo of my world to share. I love capturing all the special moments of my clients, but sometimes I can get so caught up in everyone else's stories that I forget to focus and take in my own. Also- we are only a week in and the benefits of putting in the work to document a part of each day have made themselves clear. I could be having a "meh" day but forcing myself to pull out my camera and take a picture of whats around me reminds myself of how truly lucky I am. Since a large portion of my focus each day is my child, Julian I checked in with him and he is on board! I take so many photos of this kid that I think when I told him "Just one picture a day", he thought YES! JUST ONE! not a zillion like normal.  I'll be taking them daily and recapping them weekly here on my blog. Here is the first batch. Week one of 2018! Happy New Year!
