I always wanted to do one of these “Day in the Life of” photo projects. I figured since today is my birthday that yesterday would be the perfect day to record our life. It will be fun to look back and see what a normal day when I was 30 looked like.
I will be the first to admit that while these photos may not be photography genius, I do love them and it got me thinking about different photography situations. You have to work with different lighting situations, compositions, and there are a lot of not “ideal” factors.
This is a great exercise to do if you are in a rut and need to pick up your camera again.
How it works:
-Pick a day
-Take your camera EVERYWHERE
-You can photograph each hour or each activity
-Some people set an alarm to go off each hour
Here we go:
4:09 am – Claire decides she is starving. Turns out it’s really hard to get a shot in the dark when you are exhausted. ha
8:11 am – This lovely one greets me good morning.
9:43 am – Time to get dressed and ready to go meet our friends.
10:46 am – Playing with friends at an indoor play area.
11:26 am – This play area is fantastic because the kids are happy and I get to chat with my friends.
1:57 pm – Time for lunch. We found an burger place that was trying to be like an American joint. We listened to oldies and had burgers and fries. It was like a small slice of home.
3:44 pm – Claire’s 1 month picture time.
4:50 pm – Edit Claire’s pictures.
6:21 pm – We are blessed with a fantastic squadron who have people signed up to bring us dinner to help out after Claire was born. Thank you Katey for the delicious dinner!!
7:13 pm – After dinner walk with Buzz, 3 kids, and two dogs.
8:56 pm – Kids are in bed and it’s time to work on the blog. I’m exhausted!
