My 52 week project.

Everyone seems to be doing a  project, whether it be a 52 or 365 or a certain goal. I wanted in… i wanted to do something to push myself too. Oh…. so I thought, ok, I take so many photos that i can easily do a 52 week project probably even a 365 project. But i wanted to do something that made my stomach turn a little. I wanted the “what are you thinking” feeling.

This whole project is just me thinking out loud so please bear with me. When the idea came to me I had to jump right on it or i might of chickened out.

I recently cleaned out my hard drive and printed 589 photos. I was in ONE. How sad for my kids, i simply do not exist. I need to change that and i have said this many many times. So maybe if i say it out loud it will actually get done? If i start a page i have no choice, right? At a client session i often have to talk mom into being in the photo, I hear “oh no, not me…. just the kids” But where i am in my own photos? I also know there are a lot of you photographers that feel the same way, so i am asking you to join me in my “picture me” photo challenge.  I will post one photo a week. Join in whenever you like stay for as long as you like. Remember, they don’t have to be ‘client perfect’, i don’t even care if you comb your hair that day. Take a photo with your kids, with your spouse, your partner, your dog or even a self portrait. Just be in the frame at least ONCE A WEEK. I need to do this and i am pretty sure you need to too.

This is not about strict deadlines nor is it to be a burden. It’s just to get you thinking and in the photos more. Just look at it like a friendly reminder we need to see more of YOU. You keep track of your weeks so we all have our 52 weeks no matter when we start.

I also encourage you to do a blog post now or when you are done, celebrate YOU like you would your clients and your own family.

Whether you decide to just hang out and watch for a while or jump right in, thank you for joining in.
