On January 1st, I started a project where I’m (supposed to be) taking a picture every day of 2016. I thought I’d quit after a few days like I’ve done in the past. In previous projects, if I missed one day, I’d just quit. This time I didn’t let the fact that I missed a day here and there stop me from picking up where I left off. I blame my friend (and amazing south Florida lifestyle photographer) Emily for this project. Blame is probably the wrong word. I thank her for it. She’s the one who brought the idea back into my awareness and also the one that is pushing me to keep pushing the button. She started talking about this project, and it sounded IMPORTANT. These are images of my children, my life, my heart… images that I will treasure in the future, more than I can even imagine now. This project makes me feel like I’m being pushed to be a better photographer and a better mom. These images of my children make my heart sing. I hope they will make you smile, too.
Here are a few of my favorite images from January.
