Good Morning, Friends!

 

Here is our biweekly Document our Days Feature. I have been trying to think of ways to simplify our group and to make things a bit more organized. With my travel schedule currently I am sometimes out of state when these fall so I had a bit of an idea.

Starting this week our features will not be scheduled. I will still be doing them biweekly, but instead of doing them on a concrete day I am going to be doing them on any given weekday. This ensures that i can get them up before I travel. I also notice at this point in our project it can be hard to get into the group and only a handful of people post in the folders because it is so much easier to post to the wall with our phone. I am going to do away with the folders since they are daily images and just have you all post to the wall in the group OR you can still absolutely just hashtag if you wish. I will continue to pull from there.

I think these two changes will help quite a bit for everyone. I am still going strong with the daily project and have been hash tagging to M4HP365 so if that is easiest we will roll with that for you too. However you want to do it. I know you all have busy lives as well so I want to make it as simple as possible for you too!

This feature is a bit late. My husband surprised us with a trip to South Dakota. I am playing a major game of catch up but my gosh, if you haven’t had a chance to get out there you have to go. It is so beautiful!!

And here is what some of you have been up to this week. I will quit my rambling since you have been waiting long enough.

97[365] At 4 am Mimi rushed me to the ER. I was experiencing the most excruciating lower back pain and was immediately diagnosed with kidney stones. Words can’t even describe the pain, it’s the worst of my life and it’s going to get worse according to the dr. Lots of nausea meds and 2 morphine shots later I’m home and on some heavy meds(thank you Jesus). Hoping to pass these quickly and with as little pain as possible so I’m covering my back and stomach with lemon oil and a few others. Thank you Mimi and Dandy for taking me to the ER and staying by my side for 5 hours. Thanks babe for waiting patiently at home with the kids and for taking care of me. And thank you to the staff at Eastern for taking great care of me. Prayers are greatly appreciated. Good night!!

week14

I hope you are all having an amazing Tuesday so far. We are a day late. My husband surprised us with an impromptu trip to South Dakota to see Mount Rushmore and The Bandlands so we had an amazing quick little family vacation. I am playing catch up now so I am going to hop right in since you guys have all waited long enough. Thank you SO much for your patience!

Project 365 friends, our Bi weekly feature goes live tomorrow!

With that being said, let’s hop into our Eye Candy for this week.

And a reminder:

If you are newer to the project or would like to jump in there is a wealth of great information on how this project works in our Facebook group especially under the “Files” area. You can find our group HERE.

Let’s get started!

Black and White – This was actually my idea for the ‘perspective’ week but life got so busy I unable to do it. My husband had me watch this movie, Lone Survivor, even though I am not a huge war movie fan, but this one lingered with me for days after. Only very recently has my husband been able to open up to me about some of the ‘tamer’ things he’s seen so these stories are starting to really put my life in perspective when my kiddos are pushing me to my breaking point and I have a million things I need to accomplish. The rose that my son tore up seemed like a perfect representation of something that started out so beautifully in one piece and came out a bit beat up.

“This is what I like about photographs. They’re proof that once, even if just for a heartbeat, everything was perfect.” -Jodi Picoult.
This is an image I keep by my bedside. The image is of my parents and I, enjoying a summer day with my family. My Aunt snapped this picture and the bright background caused us to be silhouette’s. It is my absolute favorite image. I lost my father a few years later, when I was 5. He was 36 years old…the age I am today. I cannot imagine leaving my 2 beautiful children or having them grow up the way I had to. The thought haunts me almost daily and limits almost every action I take. Yesterday, April 7th, was my Dad’s birthday. This is my black and white.

I always make sure I take a picture on their final night of the show, on stage, if possible. “Mame” was a fun show for him, and I loved seeing him grow as a person and actor because of it. I had another shot of just him on stage, but something about this one speaks to me more. The show goes on. Even though the audience is still in the lobby, the curtains are pulled, the work lights are up and the stage manager has already begun striking the set. Another actor is making his way to the dressing room for the final time.

And Trenton can’t wait to get out of those knee socks and dress shoes for the last time.

I still feel like I am figuring out what makes a black and white image work. I see so many images that I love but I have no idea how to create them. When I started out my 365 I didn’t think that B&W would interest me much but some of my favourite images have been in that format. It has saved me during the long winter months and for that I am very grateful.

When we lived in our old house, we had really great light that came into our living space. In our new house, we just do not. Our kitchen is right smack in the middle of the house, so there isn’t a tremendous amount of light. I walked in the other day and saw the sun hitting the oranges, that aren’t usually on the stove, and realized that maybe I just had not really been looking for the light soming in. And, the utensils creating what looks like a hand puppet dog or maybe dragon, made me laugh!

Growing up too fast…

“I don’t want to kiss you good night
So I’ll just keep on holding you tight
‘Cause I know you’ll change and you’ll grow
You’ll get bigger with each morning light

I know that the sky’s full of stars
And dreams call your name from afar
I’m anxious to see all you’re going to be
But I’m sure going to miss who you are

But I’ll keep you right here in my heart
And I’ll memorize each little part
‘Cause one day you’ll grow and I’ll miss you so
But I’ll keep you right here in my heart.”

(these lines from a poem by Betsy Hernandez beautifully sums up my emotions.)

Life goes through phases of gray times and clearcut black and white times. We’ve had lots of changes this week. Changes that move us completely out of the gray areas of our lives and bring us fully into a more black & white certainty of our future. Living in the gray is hard. Having our house on the market for nearly 3 years, we finally recieved and accepted an offer this week. Our oldest child discovered more loose teeth, and announced that he was going to marry a little girl in his class. Our middle child got registered for Kindergarten. And our youngest (and last) baby stopped nursing, just shy of 1 year. My kids are growing up, and we as a family are moving up. Up and out of the gray, into the black and white reality of life as a strong family of 5. It’s all terrifying and heartbreaking and overwhelmingly exciting at the same time. I’ve loved every minute of this gray phase. There have been more ridiculously amazing memories made in the gray than I can even count. I can’t wait to see what the black and white phase of a new, bigger house, two kids in grade school, and full-on toddlerhood brings

It breaks my heart to post this Black & White image. This one moment in time captures innocence lost to reality. This.

The moment I took it, I knew.

14/52 :: Black & White

This little girl’s name is Taylor. She is 10-years-old and she has cancer. I have just started working with families whose child has cancer, and this is the first time I got to photograph them.

I was completely ok sitting in the hospital with them, laughing, hanging out. It was when I started talking it through with my husband, culling images, that I lost it. They make jokes about death, they talk about their friends’ kids who have died from cancer, and it made me catch my breath. I dared not say the C word or the D word for fear that I would upset them, but it’s their reality. Cancer is already part of their life. Death MIGHT be part of their life at some point during this journey.

This will be the most sobering, difficult, rewarding thing I will ever be blessed to photograph.
