The Home Life Project is a personal photography project I started shortly after my youngest child was born to put aside a day a month to record the everyday moments of family life through the seasons. All too often the weeks rush by and we find that without a specific event to act as a trigger we forget to photograph our every day.
Now in its third year I still find great value in having a date in the diary to make the effort to use my big camera to photograph family moments. Others join along too some intermittently, some more frequently, but if you ever wish to get your camera out and share the results you are more than welcome…
July is of course a joy to photograph and this summer has been particularly kind to us. It was 31c yesterday and after a morning at home we were lucky enough to spend some time in my parents pool cooling off with two crazy water babies whose swimming skills have really come into their own during this warm weather.
As my mum often says it was “a day for the freezer”.
If you have only just discovered the Home Life Project and would like to join in next month, it happens on the first full weekend of every month, so the next dates are 4th & 5th August, with the blog linky opening at 7am on Monday 6th August. You can read more about it here.
