Last month, though, I did my first "By the Hour" project. The challenge, of course, is to create an interesting photo when the timer goes off - no matter how uninteresting things seem to be at the moment.
And that's really what it's all about, isn't it?
Finding that beautiful bit in the mundane.
Reframing your view of your personal situation and focusing more on all the little things you're thankful for.
And being 100% present, so you can truly experience it.
What would you do if I came over with my camera for the afternoon?
Maybe you’d cozy up and read on the couch with your youngest. Maybe you’d bake something special with your oldest. Maybe you’d build a fort from start to finish with your kids – or try, until they took over to get everything just so.
If I had chosen a word to define 2016, it would have been consistency. While a lot of good came from that consistency (a growing business, acceptance into Click Pro, a workshop that has helped women really learn to use their cameras), I also spent a lot of it stressed and busy with tasks that, frankly, made wonder if I was wasting time that could have been better spent.
After a year of hospitalization, including major heart surgery and a throat surgery to correct breathing issues, Eliza is home!
This film is a celebration of Eliza's life, her homecoming, and the love her family shares, both with her and for her. My hope, is that in the years to come, they'll look back and see how far they've come.
