I remember when I started this project it was with the ardent desire to finish each of the 52 weeks, and here we are with three weeks left and I feel an early sense of accomplishment in doing just that. Â It might be a trivial thing, but it has taken dedication on my part and pushing through many weeks where I just wanted to throw in the towel. Â Some weeks I was able to put together lovely images with intention and try to match them with honest and hopefully inspiring words; other weeks it was one image and just a few words as a means to just getting it done. Â I will admit, that this week is one of those weeks. Â I would have liked to do something more, something personal but these lovely photos work too.
I think several of us are doing babies this week and I’m honestly excited about it because we all have our own styles and strengths. Â I think it will be nice to see it in such a variety of ways. Â A while back, I used to think that I wanted to photograph a lot of babies, mostly or all in fact. Â Photographing newborns is nice because they’re so sweet and it gives that fix without having to get up every two hours in the night. 😉 Â I will say that it is serious work and the sessions I did best in were often 4 hours. Â Additionally, I found that with the trendy styles in newborn photography as of recent, I was being asked to do poses that I wasn’t comfortable or accomplished with. Â I found that if I worked with families that didn’t necessarily want that, I was much happier and more capable. Â So now I just photograph babies on occasion and I really enjoy each one.
Happy Wednesday everyone! Â Just three weeks left!
