100 Days of Summer | Week One | Ashburn Virginia Documentary Photography

I mentioned it briefly in my last post, but this season I've decided to document our summer through a 100 Days of Summer Project. Along with other photographers all over the world, I'll be taking at least one photo a day (although knowing the way I shoot it will probably be more like 100 per day) beginning on Memorial Day and concluding on Labor Day.

There are lots of reasons I chose to join in with this project, first and foremost being the little extra push it gives me to pick up the camera everyday and document my own family's lives. As family photographers sometimes we get so wrapped up capturing memories for other families that our own fall by the wayside. By shooting everyday (and most likely the same subject everyday: Charlie) I'm hoping to exercise some creative muscles and improve my skills. We all know the best way to get better at something is to practice, and I've got 100 days of practice ahead of me!

While my goal is to take a photo everyday, processing those photos is another story. I'm giving myself grace in that department, and aiming to have the photos edited and posted here in a weekly blog post. Hopefully that will make things a bit easier to manage! With all that being said, here are my photos from the first week of the project!

That's it for week one! Hopefully I'll be back next week with more images to share! I would love to capture memories for your family just as I do my own; if you'd like to schedule your family, maternity, newborn, or childhood session, send me a note and let's chat!
