Everyday Joy Project “Self Portrait”

After a super busy fall season last year I found myself yearning to slow down. To better carve out time to take pictures of my own little crew. To remember why I got into photography in the first place. It was for my story. My little family’s story. And yet, the reality had become that I was rarely picking up my big camera anymore at home. The iphone is just way too handy dandy.

And so I decided to start a little project.
The “Everyday Joy Project”

I invited each of the ladies who took one of my beginner photography classes to join me in a monthly project. I figured if I was the one who organized and started the project then I couldn’t back out halfway through the year! (ha!)
I also thought it would be an awesome way to practice together. Plus, once a month is totally doable!It has since grown from there and anyone and everyone is welcomed to join!

Each month I post a new theme in a closed facebook group. These themes will hopefully encourage us to “think outside the box” and get a bit more creative with our picture taking! The plan is for each of us to post our photos in the facebook group and then I will highlight some of them on here each month.
The goal is to create community.
To encourage one another.
To grow together.
Whether you are brand new to photography, or have been doing it for years, all are welcome!
If you would like to play along, please click here and request to join our group:)

Wendy Nilsen - Um, I love this! (partly because I get to ‘see’ a glimpse of you & a few friends and partly because it reminds me to take in the moments! ) Miss you friend!
