Project 52 – Motivation through 2021

by | Jan 4, 2021

I’ll admit it, I slacked on taking personal pictures in 2020.

I couldn’t have imagined I could go weeks, let alone months, without picking up my camera – but that’s exactly what happened. I know it was a challenging year for everyone, but instead of documenting that part of our family history, I recoiled into a Netflix-binging ball of stress. I didn’t create, I didn’t do anything for months.

Here we are at the start of 2021, with another lockdown in-progress (in my part of the world anyway), and this time, I am so relieved to have a project that is going to get me motivated, creating and documenting my life and I want you to join me.

I live with a grumpy husband, a couple of teenagers, and the handsomist kitty. None of them want to be a part of my projects anymore, so, don’t worry if you don’t have littles to photograph, or a perfect home, this project is going to be about you as a creator, and together we’ll find new ways of seeing our lives.

Each week I’ll share a new theme for us to all focus on in the Facebook Group and via email. Remember to stop by Facebook to share your images and tag HL52 on Instagram!

Worried you might forget, sign up right here for a weekly email reminder in your inbox.

WEEK 1 – Self-Portraits

Remember in grade school, on the first day when the teacher made you say your name and something about yourself and you cringed a little (or a lot) on the inside? Well, here we are again. But this time, you can make your portrait ANYTHING you want. It doesn’t have to be perfect or a work of art – it just needs to be you.

Trust me, I am cringing just as much as anyone about this assignment – but we can do it! I can’t wait to get to know you all through your self-portraits.

When you’re ready, post your image in the Facebook Community, and on IG share using #HL52_1.

Remember, your image can be just you, you with family, or even a representation of you. Can’t wait to see!
