Now that it’s a new year, I’m beginning to think about personal portrait projects I’d like to take on.
Last year I joined a lovely group of photographers and participated in a weekly self-portrait project (#p52radness). Mainly to encourage myself to get in the frame with my kiddos. I spend so much time behind the camera that I don’t often get in the frame with my own children, which is really a bummer for them. Because for so long, I’ve been documenting their story from my perspective, leaving out one of their favorite characters. So this project was for them.
Here are some of my favorite self-portraits from 2017. Although I didn’t get in the frame every week, this project resulted in a collection of images that I would have never taken. And I know my children will appreciate these moments later in life.
Whether you’re a photographer or a mother, I encourage you to get in the frame this year, you won’t regret it!
