tell the story of 2009...

/
A

A suggestion for your New Year’s (photo) resolution is:  to tell the story in photographs of your children/family for 2009.  I accomplished  this with my first born – a year of her life – I took a picture every day for 365 days – what great memories it evokes!!

As a photographer, the goal of every photograph is to tell a story.  If you document the day to day life of your family or one year – you are bound to capture many of life’s happiest moments.

Besides shooting the obvious like holidays, birthdays & special occasions – start to observe your children/family more closely…be spontaneous, be creative, be persistent!  Document what your children/family love (painting butterflies everyday after school, climbing trees), what they have fun with (playing dress up in princess costumes, jumping in puddles), their achievements (like learning to ride a bike, tie their shoes).

Take a lot of photos – think about the pictures that make you happiest when they come back from the lab – the most natural looking ones.  The more you shoot your children, the less attention they will pay to the camera and the better your chances of catching the shot you are looking for.  These are the photographs that become the most memorable.

Most importantly, when you look back on this album – you will be taken right back to that point in time.  What seems mundane now – will be a cherished memory years down the road.   Will you remember that your daughter liked to eat food from the dog bowl (when she was one) or wear a tutu over her skirt everyday (when she was four)?  Without these images, these are memories that may slip away!  Consider putting the album together in a blurb book or shutterfly. Tell the story of a year within the story of your lifetime!

We will post photography tips weekly – perhaps you can implement some of these ideas to keep things fresh all year!

Hi! I realize this is sort of off-topic but I needed
to ask. Does building a well-established website such as
yours require a large amount of work? I am brand new to running a
blog but I do write in my journal every day.
I’d like to start a blog so I can share my own experience and feelings online.
Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for new aspiring bloggers.
Appreciate it!

What a great idea. I’m expecting my first baby the end of this month and I should totally do this to document the first year of his little life.

It is a challenge to get a shot EVERY day but it is so worth it in the end. Congratulations by the way.
