Happy New Year! I am so excited to see all the amazing things this next year is going to bring! And while I am not big on the whole “resolution” thing, I do think it’s good to regularly take stock and determine what changes and improvements need to be made. Like most moms, I want to make more quality time with family. I want to have more one-on-one time with my children. I want to eat healthier and exercise more. I want to spend more time in prayer and in God’s word. And I want to really grow as a photographer. I have seen such tremendous growth in my photography this past year, and I can hardly wait to see how much it grows in this next year. Thus, I am starting a 365 project. One great photo per day for the whole year. Now, this isn’t really a big change – I normally take random photos or shoot mini sessions almost every day. But my plan right now is to really take the time to create, to feel inspiration, to know when I’ve got the shot and call it a wrap. I’m also working on a very clean, concise, and efficient post-processing workflow.
So, with that in mind, here is my 1st portrait of the new year.
It was a 10 minute session out in a brisk 40 (burrrrr!) degrees! (Her sister was on stand-by with a warm coat to bundle her in between shots.) But it was still pretty fun!
Are you working on a 365 project this year? Feel free to post your flickr! I’d love to see your work!
