May was a crazy month around here including the end of the semester at work, a trip to the hospital, a couple birthday parties, a carnival, field day and the pool opening! I have thrown some extras in here from a couple days and one of these shots is from a day where I took exactly 1 photo (and I am a chronic overshooter) because I was too busy having fun but I'm including it anyway.
April was definitely a much more inspiring month for me. In part because at the end of the month I went to Insta Inspire which was an amazing opportunity for me to meet and learn from fellow photographers. It was so nice to have a weekend to just focus on learning. In fact, I have a couple of days this month where I am sharing two pictures because I just couldn't choose one!
In March I participated in a photography project created by Emily Hamson of Lavender Lime Photography. Read more about this inspiring project here. It was definitely a challenge but I tried to make two rainbows, one solely with flowers and one with pictures of my boys. Here are the two collages of images that came from the project.
Last year I did a Weekly Photography project and it was a great opportunity for growth. I always thought that a daily photography project would be too much for me because I work full time and therefore really don't have much time in the day to take pictures. I decided that wasn't a good enough excuse and to go for it. I'm trying to be forgiving and recognize that it isn't the end of the world if I miss a day. The hardest part for me is that some days I don't like any of the shots enough to want to share. But, I think it is important to document my journey so I'm going to show everything. Here are my shots from January.
