project 365

So you may or may not have noticed my little "Project 365" button in my sidebar over there. I have decided to jump on the photo-a-day bandwagon for 2010. This was something that I wanted to do last year but didn't start in time, and me, being as OCD as I am, I didn't want to start part-way through the year. So I waited. And now it is 2010 and I am ready to take pictures.

For those of you who have no idea what "Project 365" is, it is a concept that was created by Becky Higgins to take a photo every day of the year. You can go here to see the kit that she has offered (this year she is calling it "Project Life") and just to learn more about it general. So how am I going to approach my Project 365? I am going to keep it simple. No kit. No scrapbooking the pictures (just yet). I am simply going to do my best at taking a photo every single day, and post it over on my cute little Project 365 blog. I'll wait until closer to the end of the year to decide on just what I want to DO with all of my photos...hmmmm. Maybe a Shutterfly or iPhoto book? Maybe at some point I'll get Becky's kit? Maybe photo collages of each month? Not quite sure yet. But I'm not worried. For me, the main focus will be on capturing all of the moments that are my family. What we do, where we go, our surroundings, what we eat, our home, ourselves...just all the little things that make us US. I am not going be beat myself up if I miss a day here and there. I'll simply just keep taking the pictures that tell our story. That is what it is all about. Our story.

So please take a look at my Project 365 blog. There are 2 whole pictures for your viewing pleasure! Haha! I'm sure I'll have no rhyme nor reason as to how/when I post my photos as well...sometimes I may be posting everyday, and sometimes I'll probably post in batches. Like I said, just keeping it simple and going with the flow.

Can't wait to see what this year holds for us.


(Oh, and I have a new sneak peek up over on my photography blog!)

Tal, what are you shooting with? I shoot with the Canon 30D & honestly, I'm not really that fond of it. But I won't tell hubby that. Teehee... :)

(I have no clue why my Blogger Profile doesn't work, so I just type all that junk in. :)

I ordered Becky's Project Life kit this year, I can't wait to get it. I love this idea! It was fun seeing you guys at Grandma's party, Jayna had so much fun playing with Gabby!

Great idea! I have started a similar tradition. I make a family yearbook each year with macbooks then we look at them on New Year's Eve. So fun! It's fun remembering all the special times that happen in a year.

I absolutely LOVE that idea. I wish I knew about it before the year started! Then I would do it this year!
