Hey! It’s Karina here with Light and Armour Photography. First blog post! As I announced on my Facebook business page, I am stepping away from the business aspects of photography for a majority of 2019, as we welcome baby Jude in April and transition to a family of five. The thought of “walking” away from photography for the entire year was not what I had in mind, though, and so I created the group, “Document Your Now.”
My vision for Document Your Now is to encourage us all, professional photographer or not, to document our daily life. The moments we think we’ll remember. I’ll look back on images from months or years ago, and wonder how I could’ve forgotten the details. Blissful moments with my husband, precious knuckle dimples of my newborn, a sweet treat I spent hours creating, carefree travels, beloved embraces with family members who have passed. Images are the gift we give ourselves when our memory fails. The gift we didn’t know we needed, when we convince ourselves, “I’ll remember.” This small notion sparked my entire photography passion. To preserve my now, which is ever so fleeting. I hope this group can inspire each of us to share our work, develop our talent, and grow as a photographer / artist.
To track our growth and our year, I encouraged group members to begin a 365 day project (photo a day) or a 52 week photo challenge (a photo a week) for 2019. I am personally doing a 365 day project / photo a day.
Monthly, I will be blogging and sharing favorites from the group. I hope you enjoy our month in review! It was difficult to just pick one photo from each person!
Happy 2019, folks!
