I am thrilled to be joining in a 12 month photography project with a group of incredibly talented photographers from across the country. The theme each month is “what _____ looks like”, and we have to fill in the blank. We will each link to another photographer in the group until the circle of 12 is complete. I am looking forward to seeing the different perspectives of each photographer and also getting to know them better through their imagery. There are very few rules, however the photographs must be of our own children and family, and taken in a lifestyle format (meaning less “posed” and more “in the moment”…which will be a HUGE stretch for me”). We get so caught up in shooting for clients and other projects that it’s easy to neglect capturing all the sweet and fleeting moments of our own families. I look forward to documenting my family and creating a photographic journal of who we are. Hopefully this project might inspire you to go out and do the same. To focus on our families, the ones we love and who mean the most to us. These will be the photographs that will mean the most to us 30 years from now.
I decided I would start this project out focused on my boys. They aren’t much like typical boys their age. They’re not really into music, fashion, posters, texting, or girls yet. They seem to be content just enjoying their childhood and being carefree. My boys love carving swords with their pocket knives, launching rocks with their sling shots, climbing trees in their “fort”, fishing, exploring in the mountains, and swimming in any waterhole they can find! My boys are kind, honest, loving, and full of life . I utterly adore them and love them to pieces. They truly are best of friends.
I can’t help it….I’m such a “poser” If you want mega inspiration, be sure to check out the imagery of the different photographers participating! To start, here is a link to Jules Trandem | San Diego Lifestyle Photographer
