I am SO excited to share a new project I will be doing this year with some insanely talented photographers! I am humbled to be a part of this group and KNOW you are going to LOVE LOVE LOVE all the images shared by these ridiculously talented photographers!
You may have heard of the project 10 on 10, where photographers share 10 images they took that month and share it on the 10th of the month. Well, in honor of Spinal Tap, we’re doing 11 on 11. If you don’t know what my Spinal Tap reference is, here’s a clip:
So, yes, indeed. These will go to 11! I will be sharing 11 images I’ve taken of my family and will share them on the 11th! The catch is, that 11th picture needs to be something different. For me, that something different will (hopefully) be a self portrait of me with my kids. I am so seldomly in front of the camera, and so desperately want pictures of me with my kids, so this project is my little push to make sure that I not only document my kids’ lives, but also include me in some of those pictures!
Let’s get started!
My freakishly tall daughter had the honor of placing the star on the San Francisco Union Square Christmas Tree this year. We’re so proud. Hehe.
My son graduated to yellow belt in karate. He already has a black belt in Cute.
My beautiful mom celebrated another year on this earth, for which I am incredibly grateful. Also pictured here is my amazing dad who lended his lungs when my mom couldn’t get those candles out. For those who don’t know, my mom has been battling brain cancer for almost 3 years now. Good thoughts and prayers are always welcome. It’s been tough.
The dude got a Flashrider 360 for Christmas and clearly owns the neighborhood now.
We went up to Reno to ski and play in the snow. She allowed me pretty much this one picture in the parking lot before running off but dang, how I love it.
Taking a break from sledding to eat some snow. He may have eaten his weight in snow that day.
We stayed at the Circus Circus in Reno. I woke up to see my little guy sitting on the heater, peering out the window at the newly fallen snow.
Up the escalator to go to Circus Circus’s Midway of Fun.
She bought some light up glasses with her winnings. It took her a gajillion minutes to decide on what to get and then she wore them for about a minute before she was done.
A shot of my daughter’s eyelashes while she was doing some artwork at the table. Love finding quiet moments like this.
And now for the 11th picture! This was shot by me, using a tripod, one light set up, and my remote. My remote has a 2 second delay, so once I fired it, I had two seconds to hide it and get ready for a shot! LOL! We had SO much fun! I couldn’t decide how to present it, so I went a little crazy.
I will have to do a separate blog post to share all the fun pictures I got! I rarely use studio lights and hope to try to use them more this coming year. I’m so glad I am challenging myself with this monthly self portrait. I hope I can keep the creativity going for 12 months!
