Personal project: four people, twelve times (first time)

A photographer whose work I love came up with this great idea, and I’m taking it on as a personal project too. I’m going to really try to get one family photo each month this year. I’m thinking it’s a cool time to do it. Sadie’s 9 months old, Annie’s 4, and at this time next year they’re both going to be so much bigger. Doesn’t matter what we’re wearing, what we’re doing, I’m just going to try to get us all in the same frame. And I HATE getting my picture taken. That’s why I take pictures, so I don’t have to be in them. Ick. But here goes.

This month’s shot is in the room we’re adding in our basement, in the hopes that it’ll be fun to look back at this picture as the year progresses and our renovation project finishes up (please, oh please, can it finish up?)…

Here we are in all our glory. And DUDE, it’s hard to get everybody to look in the same direction when there’s nobody behind the camera (that’s my funky new remote shutter in my hand). Three outta four ain’t bad, I figure.

And you can see the room a bit more in this one:

Anybody want to join me for this project this year?

What a fabulous idea! I had recently been inspired by the Picture of the Day idea (taking one pic a day of your kids), but it seems overwhelming to me. Twelve times sounds doable…I’m in!
