oh personal photography projects,

how i love to plan for thee

and then leave thee in the dust as i race off to something else.

so this year i decided to go easy on myself.

no 365, no themed projects-

just a photo every week

on film

of my boys at this magical age that is two & four


i chose this not so much because i wanted to document this time in our lives

to remember, to look back on.

but more because when i pick up my film camera, i feel present.

it helps me to appreciate the moment that is being created as i create the photograph.

it’s an exercise of gratitude

for both the love i have of these ages, the challenges that go along with it

and for the bond that is forming between these two little boys-

they are each other’s favorite people.

and mine too.
