Starting 2011

 So who is taking on Project 365? {where you take a photo every single day}

I was thinking about it. But really...  I will totally suck at keeping up on it. I know I take a ton of photos, but believe it or not, I don't take a photo every day! I find that extremely challenging. The actual taking, editing, uploading. Ugh. I hope I don't regret not doing it!

Anyway.... 

Here they are, the FIRST photos of Bennett in 2011! He had his grumpy pants on and the only thing that would keep him happy was being outside. In 30 degree weather. Not fun. But anything to keep him happy, right? :)





............. coming soon ..............

You might have seen the announcement, but just in case you missed it.... I will be hosting a Valentine's Day linky!.... (coming soon!)

So be thinking about your Valentine.
How you met. Your love story. Why you love them. Your wedding day.  {things like this!}
And be ready to share it! :)

Beautiful pictures of him, I don't know how you chose which ones to blow up and frame! All of his pictures turn out wonderful! I'm thinking I'm going to do the P52.. one photo a week, much easier than 365!

Lacey said...

Hi! I am a new follower and so excited! I am a newlywed, {wanna} be photographer someday and am so inspired by your photos!

Your son is way to cute for words, I look forward to seeing more of his precious face! :)

m&msmommy said...

Those pictures are beautiful! He is absolutely precious!

I can't wait for the Valentines link-up. What a cute idea! :)

GabbyRM said...

I'm also inspired by your photos if I didn't say so already (hence why I am following your photography blog on top of this one and your Facebook page). I love seeing beautiful photography! I was thinking the same thing about the 365 project. I told my husband if I was going to do one, the new year would be the perfect time to start, but I probably wouldn't do well because I don't take pictures every day either.

I wish I had the motivation to do the 365 challenge too! I try to take pictures of Adrienne everyday, but of course other things happen and they end up staying on my camera for the.longest.time.




Such beautiful photos:)
Keeps reminding me I need a MUCH better camera.

Nikki said...

What a little boy! Who cares what the temp is, they want to be outside ALL the time.

Ooh a love story linky? I can't believe it's almost Valentine's day!

Sarah Halstead said...

He is so cute!! I am doing the 365 challenge, but just posting my photos once a week in a storyboard. Check it out on my blog if you want. :)

Kristy said...

Always a cutie! I'm doing P52 this year.

I am a new follower of your blog and LOVE it. Great pictures! Your son is so hansome!

I am attempting the project 365, hoping I can do it!

Amy said...

I really like the Valentine Link-up! Great idea - I'm sure you'll get some pretty amazing stories out of it :)

I have thought about doing the Project 365 once I get my camera but I just don't think I could deal with the pressure of a photo everyday!

Sylvia Cook Photography said...

Aww, he's wearing the hat he got for Christmas...and he left it on!
I wouldn't be able to do a 365, way too much commitment.

Jen said...

Such cute photos! Happy New Years... & stay WARM!

Amber said...

I am with you girl. I keep wanting to do a 365 challenge, but I think I will get overwhelmed and frustrated. Your photo skills are already awesome, but I know if I did it I would improve in so many areas by the end of the year. All of that to say, I am still up in the air. I guess, I should decide before I am even more behind....hahaha.

Bennett's first photos of 2011 are awesome. The grumpy pants some how made there way to Florida and onto my little boy. Quit passing those things around...hahaha.

Looking forward to more details on the linky party

kaley said...

i'm doing the 365! i started it mid-year in 2010 and did good for a couple of months but then ran out of things to take pictures of! this year i'm doing a 365 of my son!

Joni said...

i am participating in a 365 but i am totally just going to go with the flow. i will probably include phone photos and SOOC shots. i think if i don't pressure myself into expecting perfection then i will be okay.

i will definitely participate in your valentines linky. i am grabbing your little banner and putting it in my sidebar as a reminder if you don't mind?

Nikki said...

Those pictures are amazing!!!! So so good!!! Can't wait for the Valentines link up! YAY!

We should start an informal P52 group...I like something with less pressure. As always, bennet's adorable...

Jess Craig said...

oh well, being outside is great for him! we take wyatt out in the cold too. he loves it... which freaks me out because i'm always freezing. how do these babies do it? anyway, your kid's eyes are seriously piercing through my soul!

Lea said...

Well, I'm with you on the photo a day. I do take a ton of photos but not sure about "having" to take one everyday. :o)

The pictures are too cute but the subject is too cute!

Looking forward to hearing about your Valentine Day Linky. Sounds like fun!

Chelsey - The Paper Mama said...

I want to HUG him!

You already know I'm doing a 365... :D How about instead of a 52 weeks of YOU... Maybe a 52 weeks of Bennett? I know you already take enough photos to do this... maybe you could slip your beautiful mug in a couple of the shots too. :D

Charisma Moran said...

These are all amazing shots! Look at those eyes!

Angel Perry said...

Your photos are amazing! I wish I had the drive to take the challenge of picture taking everyday. Maybe I will start, just a little bit late? :)
