projectTEN :: July 2017

This month I documented one summer day, an hour at a time. I've found this to be a fun challenge to stretch myself to get images with my "real camera" that I wouldn't normally get - in the van, out to lunch, where ever we happened to be at the start of each hour. So here's to remembering a July 2017 day full of outside fun (including three hours of softball games), lunch with dad, and one three-year-old who got attacked by mosquitoes the night before and had the puffy eye to prove it.

projectTEN :: May 2017

This month, I let my moody side win over.  10 pictures of real life around here, all black and white and with no smiles. Thank you, two rounds of the stomach bug, for helping to make this theme possible.

projectTEN :: April 2017

Just an ordinary Friday night around these parts. They don't look like they used to and they won't always look like this, and to me that's worth documenting.

projectTEN :: March 2017

Around these parts the winter months have brought us 70 degree weather, snow, and everything in between.  So it seems right that this month's pictures should cover a little bit of everything.  Here's a glimpse into our everyday life lately - snow and hot chocolate parties, being stuck inside and enjoying warm days outside, and even a quick trip to the beach.

projectTEN :: February 2017

This month I decided to choose one day to pick my camera up every hour and document life as it was happening in that moment. So I set an hourly timer on my phone and took my camera with my everywhere we went. I'll be honest, it wasn't my favorite thing in the moment - I love documenting everyday life for families but when I have to keep my "mom hat" on while trying to get photojournalistic pictures of my own kids, it's a little different. :)  It pushed me out of my comfort zone, especially when we were in places like Target and the library, but it was worth it to see the final product of our day in a nutshell. Enjoy a little slice of our 8:00 to 5:00 life on a Wednesday.

projectTEN :: January 2017

I am so honored to be a part of this project again this year - it's a challenge that has kept me taking pictures of everyday life for the past two years and I'm so grateful for a wonderful group of women to do this with! The concept is sweet and simple. We are a group of women photographers striving to continue documenting our own lives amidst juggling family, clients, and running our photography businesses. On the 10th of each month we post 10 non-work photos. Mostly you'll see pictures of my family and home life with these posts. The most important things to me but often the things I photograph least, especially during seasons when work is extra busy.

This month I did my best to see a morning at home through my documentary photographer eyes - picking up my camera throughout the morning to catch ordinary moments and scenes. Enjoy a glimpse into a slow weekday morning with me and my kiddos. From the breakfast table and a print of my 2017 motto, to sibling fun, texting dad (27 different emojis), flossing (their new favorite thing, we'll see how long that lasts) and pre-nap hugs. 

Happy 2017 friends. Here's to celebrating the everyday and telling our stories.
