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
