ABOUT THIS MONTH
My Year of Themes project for February was focused on minimalism. I love simple, so I was excited for this theme! Then I remembered that simplicity and small children don’t necessarily go hand in hand, and I was finding it challenging to capture my kids’ everyday moments in a minimal way. That being said, I didn’t take a lot of minimalism themed photos with my kids in them. I kinda feel like I copped out. But I also feel like I stepped out of my comfort zone a bit too because I took a lot of photos without people in them, which is not typical for me!
I planned on trying to shoot 2 rolls with this theme in mind. That’s how excited I was for the theme! But the month got away from me. I love to shoot with negative space in mind often. This isn’t something new or super challenging for me. I really wanted to push myself with this theme and try to capture extreme minimalism. I didn’t exactly accomplish that. But, I am a busy work from home small business owner and simultaneously full time mom of three…during a pandemic. So, I am going to give myself some grace, and be proud that I was able to capture what I did! Heck, this is my 14th month in a row keeping up with blogging my personal photo projects, so that is a win in and of itself in my book!
I’m doing this project with a group of fellow film photographers! Be sure to check out their minimalism photos too! Dena | Amy | Emma | Catherine | Cami

Ummmm, nailed it! LOVE the skipping/cycling shadows on the ground and then ooooh, the arms and legs photos. But wow, architecture just screams minimalism, especially when you know how to see it.
Jolene! These are incredible 😍 Also you are amazing to be doing all you are doing, 14 months is 🙌
Ummm, these are amazing!! So good to see all these interesting shapes and compositions from you! Still very Jolene. I’m dying over the legs one. So so so cute. But these should all be prints! Gorgeous!
