I took a little break from accepting photography clients to be present and spend my weekends with my loves. Not that I was unbelievably swamped, but busy enough that it put a little wedge of stress on our weekends. I did spend some time soul searching and picking up my camera for me, though, and during that time I explored the personal projects of some incredibly talented photographers. I thought, "Wow! I want to do a personal project!" What would it be? Street photography? The homeless of South Orange County? 365 days of my own feet? Something obscure- out of focus photography? None of those are really me.
So, my idea was born. A Year of Mondays. Instead of attacking my kids with my camera and putting crazy pressure on myself to do a 365 project, I've signed on to shoot a year of our Mondays. I'm two weeks in and it's been pretty fun! I'm looking forward to making a book of our memories at the end of the year.
Without further ado, I present our first Monday: July 8th.
There you have it! Our very first in a year of Mondays.
