At the start of this year I turned a casual and occasional photography post into a regular monthly photography project and I invited those who were curious to join in to. The Home Life Project not only provides a photographic record of my growing and changing family but it also means that whatever the weather, whatever the obstacles I get my camera out at the start of every month and spend a day concentrating on taking photos.
Often when I sit down to edit my photos at the end of the HLP weekend I can be a terrible critic and convince myself I took nothing of value that month, but what I’ve learned is that the images I capture grow in value over time. Looking back over the last 12 months there are so many brief wonderful moments that I photographed solely because of this project. Tiny baby moments that have gone forever or summer days that seem a lifetime away, but I have them recorded!
So today I want to share with you some of my favourite photos and to invite you to join me next year. You don’t need an expensive camera, but a desire to push yourself to capture the best photos within the limitations of your equipment is a great help. The Home Life Project happens on the first full weekend of every month (ie where both Saturday and Sunday are in the month) and the link up opens at 7am on the Monday.
New for 2017 I’ll be publishing a post on the Friday preceding the Home Life Project (starting next Friday) introducing a theme or challenge for the month. I hope you can join us, I promise you won’t regret it.
So what are you waiting for! All the information about the project and the badges for the blog post are kept on this page (bookmark it for future reference) and the first Home Life Project weekend is next weekend, 6th & 7th January! You don’t have to have a blog, you can simply join in by sharing your photos on social media with the hashtag #homelifeproject
