365 Complete {Fine Art Photography, Effingham, Illinois}


I can't tell you how happy I am to be able to say.....My 365 Project is Complete!!!! For those of you who aren't in the know, I took a photo a day of my son Tharin.

The see the whole project, go HERE

I'm really quite proud of it to tell you the truth.  It was such a challenge!  For some reason, I thought it was going to be easy.  It wasn't. Not at all.

A panic still grips me now.  That fear of "Oh my God!  I didn't get my photo today!!"  Only to realize the project is over.  I wasn't completely successful with it.  A few days were missed here and there.  Many times, late at night I'd realize I had forgotten and have to sneak in while he was asleep to get his photo.  You'll see lots of sleepy photos since I'm fairly forgetful. Some days I wasn't feeling particularly inspired and the photo is more of a snapshot, but I'm okay with that.  I've barely picked up the camera since December 31st.  It's sooooo nice to take a break.

I hope to make a book for Tharin from his year in front of the camera.  He still has a bit of a chubby baby face starting in January but by December his face is looking all boy and no baby. It's really cool to look back and see all the changes and all the things he did last year.

And next up, Favorite Personal Photos of 2012!!
