The Birthday Month | Personal Project | Abu Dhabi Photographer

This is a personal Photo Project I’m undertaking – a little challenge to myself – a set of goals to realise to help me grow, as a photographer and as a mother. Most photographers have personal projects on the go, (you can see my Project 10 posts here  where I document a day in our lives every month with 10 other photographers around the world) – I feel like if I’m not pushing myself to keep seeing in my personal life then I’ll reach a point where documenting things for my clients becomes stale – and I never want that to happen… so inspired by several of my photography friends  (including Janine and Rebecca) who have been doing photo a day projects, this is a little project I’m doing called “The Birthday Month”.

We have a month in our family where all three girls celebrate our birthdays, so instead of starting on January 1st I’m doing it now and documenting it as one picture a day of the little moments in our lives – especially in the lives of my girls. And to push myself to see things differently I’m doing it all in black and white – I’ll write more about that in the next instalment, but for now, here are the first 10 days…

They’re not perfect pictures – they’re not all special “must get the camera out” celebrations – they’re not all posed or smile for the camera pictures – they’re pictures of the every day; the real moments of this month…. Here’s to the little moments… Kirsty x

I'm Kirsty Hello There!


Hi, I'm Kirsty, a lifestyle photographer and photography educator who lives in India. My approach to photography is to capture real life – with a little sparkle on top fueled by my obsession with pretty light. I want to treasure the moments that need to be remembered.

Grab a cup of tea and have a roam around my blog to see my photography style and ideas. (Check out the Details section up there on the menu bar, and the FAQ's for lots of info too). I post pictures on here from recent photo sessions, as well as some personal photo projects and some ramblings about life in general. Leave some love, check my page out over on Facebook to stay up to date, and come back again soon,

Kirsty xx
