What a year! Last year, I tried a 365. I failed. Miserably. I made it to March, maybe. I got overwhelmed and discouraged and uninspired. I had a million excuses. I gave up. 

And then I regretted it.

This year. This year I promised that I would do better. That I'd take a photo of my kids every day just life-ing. No more rules other than one of Matilda and one of Wilson every day. I brought my camera everywhere. I tried new things. I shot in new light and tried new lenses and experimented with shadows and artificial light and off camera flash. 

I worked my tail off. I had amazing mentors and friends who encouraged me along the way, who inspired me. It's been a year of growth. Wonderful growth. This year, I found myself, my style. 

I am so proud of where I started, and so so proud of where I am now. And the hundreds of thousands of photos I took in between. I'm gearing up for my 2017 365 and photography goals. I want to work more on my lighting game. Be IN more photos. Shoot intentionally. I'm so excited to see what the next 365 days have in store. 

Who else is doing a photography project this year?
