10 on 10: 10 photos from a day of cold

I’m so excited to be able to be a part of a 10 on 10 group with a group of women on The Bloom Forum! I can’t wait to see all the amazing photographers out there and how they interpret life through their lens.
The 10 on 10 project is a chance to take one day and capture at least 10 images that tell a story of that day.

For me, my day to capture was on a freezing cold day when school was canceled and my seven year old and I were stuck inside our house.

My son had cabin fever and was looking for any way to entertain himself.

A self-designed ninja costume was one way he entertained himself.

This month was a short one for me so I don’t have quite 10 photos, but I managed to squeak out a few at least!

Project 52: My Four Hens (Reflection)

I started project 52 last year with my Four Hens and got sick so I bailed out. This year I hope I can stick to it and take one photo a week to fit the theme Sarah Cornish provides. This week, Week 1 the theme is Reflection.
Last week I reflected a lot on 2013. It was a horrible year for many reasons, one being some health issues I developed from years of bad eating, and some health issues that bad eating made worse. I changed my diet completely (going grain free and eating Paleo now) and dropped 50 pounds. I can’t say I’m 100 percent health wise, but I am definitely feeling better and I am definitely ready to tackle 2014.


Project ‘Boy’

One of my most recent personal projects is called “Boy” and features images of real “boy moments” by either my son or his friends.
I will be posting images from this projct from time to time.

2014: new projects and new goals

Snow SeasonI am excited to be relaunching my business for 2014. I’m also excited to start some personal projects. One of these projects is Project 52, which will be a photo a week for the entire year. Now, of course I will take more than one photo a week, but I’ll be posting one photo from the week throughout the year.

As far as personal projects, I hope to continue capturing my son and his friends in my project “Boy”.

I’m also planning on starting a monthly project called “Blessed Moments”, to help remind me of the blessings I have.

2013 was a tough year for me, for a variety of reasons.  I plan to focus on looking forward and not back this year. I hope you will do the same with me. There are lessons in the past, for sure, but staying there isn’t healthy for anyone.

Welcome to 2014, everyone! I hope you are as excited as I am!

Winter Days.

I can’t even believe winter is here again. It seems like just yesterday it was summer and now, here we are, in the midst of snow and ice storms.
