At the start of January I began a new year-long photography project: Life In 52. The idea is simple – to take one photo a week for each week of the year. It’s a lifestyle photography project, documenting little snippets of my life that I want to remember.
The project is being hosted by Sarah Cornish from My Four Hens Photography, who I had the privilege of learning directly from on my solo trip to Colorado at the photography retreat she ran last year. When she announced this project I decided to use it to put into practice what I’d learned.
There is a Facebook group dedicated to the project, where participants can post their images each week to share their work, hold themselves accountable and also in the hope of being featured on the blog on the Life In 52 website. Go have a look at it – the collection of submissions are breathtakingly inspiring each and every week. I’m hoping that I’ll have one of my photos featured at some point as the year goes by. At the very least I’ll end up with a collection of fifty-two images that sum up the story of 2018 as it was for us.
Here are my submissions for Weeks Three and Four:
“Doing her homework under the watchful eyes of our kittens”
“The kitchen is the hub of our home. It’s where homework gets done, meals get eaten, stories get shared, washing gets hung up, cups of tea get made, conversations get started, smiles get exchanged and tears get dried. It may be messy to look at but it’s beautiful to me because it’s where love happens, in all it’s forms.”
You can follow along with all the other submissions from the Life In 52 project on Instagram by following the hashtags #lifein52 and #m4hlifein52. And you can see the featured posts from the group each week on the Life In 52 blog (updated every Saturday or Sunday I believe). Week 3 is here (Week 4 hasn’t been published at the time of writing this)
