Life Stories: Homework now | Bethesda, MD Photographer

Several years ago in 2011, I joined a group of talented photographers to document the everyday in our own lives.  We committed to a post once a month for a year, and to date it is the only photo challenge that I have completed.  Haha!  I never missed a month, and as I look back on those photos, they have become treasures to me.  They captured my family, my little babies, as they were - those little moments.  It made me think about what I wanted to get on film each month and make it happen.  It made me think what is it that I don't want to forget, and then go document it.

Fast forward to today, I find I rarely photograph my kiddos anymore.  They are all in school full time.  They have their own lives and friends, but there are still so many little things that I want to remember.  I needed a challenge to get me to actually step out and take those photos again.  I asked some talented ladies if they were willingly to start again or for the first time.  I'm so excited to see their stories and share my own.  I look forward to 5 years from now when I get to look back on these photos and reminisce about these sweet moments.

I have to admit getting back into photographing them has been a bit of a challenge.  I feel like the last Friday snuck up on me, and I realized I hadn't taken photos yet.   I was in rush mode, but I did it.  I got something on camera.  Yay!  It's a little victory, and I hope to make a slightly larger victory next month. :)

My story homework now...

Homework used to just look like this.

Now it is morphing more and more into this as he gets older.  He loves it, and it makes our lives a lot easier when he has less physical writing to do.  Computers are his thing.  He wants to be a programmer when he is older, so this is right up his alley. 


He assures me that this is really homework.  It looks like he is planning a vacation to a tropical island.  Hmmm....  Well plan one for me too while you're at it.
