I’m currently enrolled in Jessica Thomason’s workshop, the documentary Approach, on clickin moms. I’ve taken a gazillion workshops it feels like, and this may be my last one for a while. I’m burnt out, having a 4 month old and a 3 year old is a lot of work! I still take pictures, but uploading them on the laptop, editing them always seems like more effort than its worth right now. But this class is great, and Jessica’s work is awesome. If you’ve never heard of her before, you have to check her out. I love how open she is with her knowledge, and willing to share. Her photography is documentary, and it’s very real. No posing, no staging. You can find out all her info here.
Anyway, our week three assignment was to capture a day in the life. And with this assignment in mind, we had to answer a few questions. How different is our life now from 6 months ago, how different will our lives be in 6 months, etc. And the reason why I started photography in the first place, was the hope that my daughters would look at these pictures years from now, and remember what their lives were like way back when. So this was a great exercise in seeing how our lives are like right now at this moment.
It’s exhausting. My DITL started this past Sunday. And I already forgot to take pictures of our morning, waking up, getting Ariya dressed, etc. But I did the best that I could. I also took these photos with the fuji x100t. I have such a love/hate relationship with it. I’m so close to selling it, I’m just more comfortable with my nikon d610. But I love how small and portable the fuji is. Anyway, here is how we spent our day. Enjoy!
