Project 52: my family in photos for a year
First of all, what is a Project 52? It’s pretty simple actually: it’s the commitment (to yourself) to take photos every week for a whole year. And that’s what I did last year. I love photographing my son growing up and this personal project boosted my motivation to document his life anywhere, anytime.
This Project 52 is a fantastic journey into our everyday life, documenting my son's games through photography using home and other places as a giant playground. We started the year in January with my son laughing and playing on Brighton beach and we ended the year running on Lyme Regis coast on a mild December day. Most of the time we were in or around our home in South East London, an environment we are comfortable with, a place to relax and be ourselves. What a full-on year! I just feel so grateful for having this little man in my life. Being a parent is exhausting but watching my child growing, exploring, laughing, crying, thinking and living life 100% is very inspiring.
Take a look at the highlights of my Project 52 and notice the beauty in the ordinary. As a family photographer, this has been very inspiring for my professional work too. Learning never ends!
That was 2018 for me! If you are a mum (or dad) who would love to start your own Project 52 this year, it’s never too late. I really recommend to start: grab your camera or just your phone and observe your child/ren simply being kids. Or perhaps you would love someone to document a moment of your family life this year? I would love to photograph your family. Get in touch and tell me more about what you’re looking for :-)
