One of my goals for this year was to keep up with a 52 weeks personal project. A lot of photographer friends participate in 52 week projects on various forums and they seem like a great way to step out of your comfort zone and be given new challenges. I thought something like this would be a good way to do a 52 week project but also have pictures at the end of the year that are extra meaningful and that maybe I could compile into a book. So far I’ve been staying on top of it and updating my Facebook album weekly.
Since this isn’t the typical 52 week challenge with something *really* different to shoot each week, I’m finding the challenge is discovering new ways to photograph my dogs. They are practically expert models at this point so I can put them all kinds of places together or by themselves and they won’t move until I tell them too haha. I am spoiled! And I feel like I’ve done almost everything with them! But I really need to work on capturing different things about them, their personalities, and getting a lot more creative. Already on week 5 I am kind of at a loss as to what to do this week! Hopefully I can figure something out by tomorrow because the weekend will be very busy.
Is anyone else doing something similar?
Although I have deep roots in Maryland where I grew up, I am absolutely in love with all things southern. I live on a farm in a small town in South Carolina with my handsome husband, my beautiful step-son, our two yellow lab fur-kids, and three spoiled horses. My blog is a journal of sorts. It’s where I can share all about the things I love so much: my family, our life together, and of course all of the amazing and wonderful people and pets whose story I get to tell.
I love collaborating with laid-back and down- to-earth couples who appreciate the value their wedding images will have for the rest of their lives, and I believe in unique weddings that are truly designed around two people and who they are together. I strive to create images that are emotional, organic, fresh, and genuine, but that will remain timeless twenty, thirty, or sixty years down the road. I believe in printed images, developing friendships with my clients, and having a completely relaxed and enjoyable wedding experience. Each and every story I get to tell is unique and I truly enjoy sharing all of the little pieces that together form this beautiful relationship.
I am currently booking weddings for 2013 and 2014, so please get in touch below to start the journey of documenting your love.
