Life Stories Series: The Story of the Shopping | League City Childrens Photographer

Ever see a photographer who starts out with a 365 day project, or even a 52 week project and never finishes? Yeah, me too. Well, I recently joined a group of a few other busy photographers who decided to commit to a 12 month project! If we fail this, we'll be taking donations for a time management seminar. The best part is that it will be totally candid, lifestyle shots of each of our own families/lives. We don't even have to dredge up random people or make our kids pose for us. We're calling the series "The Story of ________" and we'll each be filling in our own blanks. At the end of this post is a link to another photographer who participated and she'll be linking to someone else. It's a whole big circle of stories in pictures. Click through and enjoy! 

Our weekly shopping trip - I have to say I was a chicken doing this.  I'd take my big ole huge camera out and take a quick shot and then put it back in my bag.  Wait until I got to another empty aisle and shoot a few more, but I'm so glad I did it.  What great memories!  And we actually made it out of the store with all our shoes.  Yep, that's a miracle.


So keep on clicking and see what story Taryn Chrapkowski of Taryn Lisa Photography has to tell this month.  Enjoy the circle. :)
