Picture a Day Project | December | Dickinson Center NY Child and Family Photographer

March 18, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

Can't believe this is my final grid for 2020 and that I completed my 3rd picture a day project!!  I thoroughly enjoyed this project but have decided I won't be starting one for 2021 - planning to focus my attention on other goals this year.

I had so much fun finishing up Christmas Mini's sessions this month and enjoyed decorating and having the tree and Christmas lights to photograph.  Missed getting everybody together for Christmas this year and am praying hard that next year will be different.  I'm thankful for the what we do have and the celebrations we had even though they were different.  

Below are my 12 grids for 2020 all in one place - so fun to look through and see the changing of the seasons and the memory that each picture brings!!

2020 Picture a Day Project | November | Dickinson Center NY Child and Family Photographer

December 16, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

And just like that November 2020 passed us by.  Can't believe I only have 31 days remaining in my 366 Project - crazy!  Haven't decided if I'll do one for 2021 - time will tell.  It was a busy month with outdoor Christmas Mini Sessions.  I decided against studio sessions this year because of Covid and had so much fun doing them outside.  Celebrate Cole's 9th birthday and shed some tears remembering Mom and Dad on their birthdays this month - miss them dearly but so grateful for their love and all the treasured memories.  We all celebrated Thanksgiving separately but came together for our first family Zoom call.  Praying next year things will be back to normal and we can all celebrate together.
