personal project

She turned 7 • Personal ongoing project

This year again, I took "One Picture A Day" for the whole month of February to celebrate my daughter turning 7 (on the 23rd). You can look at the one from last year here

Then I order a softcover photo-book and I love to see my little collection growing. My kids too are growing and it's nice to see the faces and the arms + legs lengthen and their personalities flourish. It is a little bittersweet at the same time as the chubby cheeks and clumsy hands vanished slowly. But I am glad to catch my kids everyday for a month in their daily activities from dawn to night. 

Juliette Fradin uses a documentary approach for photographing families so they can just *be* in the moment and enjoy the simple moment of being together. If you would like to see more of her recent family photography, head over to her Instagram account. She loves to document the love (and tears) that go into family life, managing a small business or a sweet reunion.

She turned 6 • Personal ongoing project

For the past 4 years I've been doing a personal project documenting my kids growing up. On their birthday month, I take 1 photo a day for the whole month and print them in a book (I use Artifact Uprising).
Because I can't commit to a 365 project (where you take a pic a day for a year), I thought this would be a nice idea to work on and push me to CREATE something tangible. It feels less intimidating and something I can totally do for 1 month. One year I decided to shoot black & white only but I try to keep it simple and to put not too much pressure. The goal is to portray my daughter/son in their daily activities and remember the places, the toys, the clothes, the friends, the activities they liked...

Getting the photo-book in my mailbox totally makes my day and I love to see all the little books stacking up.
