52 Project 2013 recap

"A portrait of Avienne once a week, every week, in 2013"

Project 52 was such a fun and motivating goal to have for the year. Initially, I hoped to have 52 pictures to look back on at the end of the year that kind of told a story of a week in the life of Avienne. I had also hoped that having a bit of pressure to deliver a photograph each week might encourage me to pull out my real camera more often and be a little more present on this blog. There were definitely weeks that went by when I didn't give myself the time to sit down and reflect on the week's picture, instead, making myself play catch-up a week later. But, somehow, I managed to have a picture of my girl every single week. (My iPhone certainly came in handy on those "off" weeks.)

I'll be keeping up once again with the 52 Project for 2014. I thought about getting in front of the camera with Avienne, or forcing a family photo each week (it's not as easy at it sounds, really!), but I'm just going to stick with capturing a weekly moment of Avienne. I can honestly look back at every single one of the pictures above and tell you exactly where we were and what we were doing and feeling, and I sure do treasure having those visual reminders. This year, I really do hope to enhance my camera skills, and I am going to make every effort to use my real camera every week. Fingers crossed...

I love your recap pics. How'd you get em in those cute circles? It's amazing to see how much a child can change in a year, especially at that age. She's turning into a lovely little toddler!
