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!
