I need this project. I. NEED. THIS. PROJECT.
It’s been so good for me to not only ignore the rules, but break them. It’s been great for me to embrace personal work in a way that is very free. I get so much joy from photographing everyday life without much thought as to how and when I’m going to make this happen. I’m not strategizing. I’m not planning. I’m not dressing my kids up or setting up a perfect environment.

I’m just shooting.
And I love it.

It’s also great that I’m committed to posting something on a certain day every month. Otherwise, I might decide there are too many things on the to-do list to make this happen.

But the reality is, this should be on the to-do list. I can’t forget why I started and what I love about photography. I can’t stop capturing the everyday in the style that I love the most. I can’t stop observing and experimenting. I can’t stop doing this for me.

So.. without further ado…here are a few of my favorite stories from my personal Free 52 project for the month of January.

We get a visit from a four-legged friend who needs a shower.

After school with Liv on a cloudy day.

Mornings with Lucas.

All of these images were freelensed. Freelensing is a photography technique in which the lens is detached from the camera body while you shoot. I’ve committed to posting a set of personal freelensed images once a month. Personally, this project is about documenting the everyday, messy, beautiful stuff I love so much. I get great joy in not thinking too hard about setting up these images and making them perfect. Like the technique, it’s quite liberating — Be sure to check out another Free 52 project on the blog ofChristine Wright .

    I adore the one one of your daughter with the window kiss! And the one of her leaning on her hands. That tiny little smile is just perfect 😀
