1 of 52

Happy New Year!

It's the beginning of my year long project: "52 Weeks". I'll be in a picture every week with one, two, three kids or my entire family. It's just so often that as a mom I am always behind the camera and not in front of it. Not for 2009. So often as a mom we seem to always be behind the lens and rarely in front of it. Our children will look back at pictures when they are grown and we will hardly be in a single picture. If you would like to join me in this year long project I would really enjoy that. But more importantly your family will absolutely love it. Even if you don't have kids you can still do this, set up the timer on your camera and take a picture with you and your spouse, friend, dog, or just you out on a hike. Let's just make a point of getting in front of the camera more frequently.

Let me know if you decide to take on "52 Weeks" so I can visit your blog. Even if you don't join in, I hope that you will at least find yourself in the picture more often.

Beautiful photo, Carin. No doubt who his parents are. He may look like dad but that beautiful red hair and the blue eyes are just like moms.

I think this is a FABULOUS idea Carin! Your family will really appreciate your effort to do this. After our Mom passed away, I wanted to make a little memory book with pictures of her - they were few and far between because she was always the one taking the pictures. I loved this first photo - so sweet!

As I've said before, I just love this idea. This holiday season, I've really tried to be in front of the camera a lot more. I've always been the one behind it. I'm going to try and play along too!

I love your first picture of the year!

Loved your picture!! I'm glad you posted the idea, and even if I don't end up with once a week, I'm really going to make an effort to be consistent this year in at least 1-2 times a month!

I think I just might have to admend my to 1,2,3,or all 4 kids in a picture. I already am going to have problems with schudules, and having all the kids around, when the camera is actually out. I tried today, and the 15 year old didn't like her hair, ugh. So here is to at least 1 picture a week, with 1 or more kids in it. Love your first one, and once again thanks for the idea. I will have to keep peeking in.
