I began photography when I had my first child for the sole purpose of documenting our life as a family. I was frustrated by the delay in point and shoot cameras and not having control over exposure. As I began to learn more about the technical side of photography, I started to look for perfection in the technical and lost the emotion and documentation. Everything had to be perfect and as anyone with children knows, my house rarely is. A group of my photographer friends were starting a 10 on 10 project and I decided to join in an effort to take me back to what I love to shoot – my family. The basic idea is to pick 1 day each month and shoot 10 images of where you are that day. I’ve decided to give myself a little leeway and will be choosing 10 images over a few days but the premise will be the same – to document where we are at this stage in our family. Several of these are things I want to remember about where my kids are right now that I wouldn’t remember without these images. After you have checked out my 10 on 10 – head over to Amy Horton Photography to see her take on this project.
