Many photographers need inspiration for growth from time to time (and by "time to time" I mean we are in a constant search for becoming better because we inevitably find every imperfection in the work we shot even a day ago!)

For me, I go for such long ranges of shooting my heart out and then - zip - that when I'm home in Raleigh I rarely pick up my camera. Years ago I realized I rarely shoot my own kids, both because it is stressful (if I'm doing it as a spec shoot to demonstrate a concept I have in my head) and because I don't want them to be "those kids" who hate cameras and give a huge UGGGGGHHHHH every time a lens is out. 

Having said that, I still have kids who say UGGGGHHHH at the sight of a camera, but I blame that equally on Apple / smart phones for leading culture into documenting every. darn. second. My 5-year-old Lily even instituted a rule that you have to do 5 push-ups if you take her photo without asking her permission. 

Go on girl. 

But I digress. 

I have realized that I need a challenge...a change...a way to switch my norm and breathe new life into this craft that is my career. Insert: my 2018 365 project. The gist is that I post a photo for the year. By December 31, 2018, I hope to see growth and - most importantly - feel passion and change. 

Feel free to follow along on Instagram - I would appreciate encouragement or tips on what you have done to set your heart on fire!
