Technically, I failed this personal photography challenge, only capturing eight family photos out of twelve months. While I’m sad I missed four months, I’m so happy to have these images! I’m terrible about getting pictures with ME in them, so it’s great to have eight more pictures than I otherwise would have had.
It’s tough to make these pictures happen. My kids are at the age where they don’t care to have their pictures taken. I have to set up the timer and find a place for the camera to sit. It’s work, but it’s worth it, as I look back over the year. I want my kids to look back and see their mom in the pictures of our family life! Because of this, I’ll be taking the 12 of 12 challenge again this year! You can visit the whole series here, if you like.
Great job! It’s always work getting everyone in front of the camera and setting up the camera,but I’m with you as I want myla to see me in pictures too.
I should do this. I’m typically the one behind the lens, too. And I know the immense value of having photos of your parents. After my dad died, one of my greatest fears was forgetting what he looked like and his mannerisms. The photos and videos we have of him are cherished greatly!

I loved seeing your pictures from the year — what a great goal to set out to do. I may have to try and do the same. I’ve never used a timer… And, yes. It is so good to have Mama in the photos.So glad to be in the pages of Kindred with you. xoxo Jenn
They are all beautiful! You’re inspiring me to get in front of the camera with my little crew this year 🙂
Just found you via baby by the sea, like the idea of this challenge for the year as we hardly have any family portraits as one of us always behind the camera.
