san diego family photographer | fifty-two on friday {1} self portrait

I am so excited to tell you about my 52 week project that I am taking part in this year. 19 other photographers and I are doing our project together so you are in for a big treat. We have a list of 52 ‘ideas or themes’ we have to shoot each week for the year. I will take a picture of our theme for the week, the way I interpret it, and post it on my site. Then under my post, I will link another photographer who is part of the project for you to see her interpretation of the theme. After you see hers, you will notice a different link under her picture that will then take you to the next photographer’s website. If you continue to click on the link under each picture, in the end, you should see 18 other pictures and eventually make it back to my site. When I say there is some AMAZING talent in this group, I am not lying, you will definitely want to check out everyone’s pictures.

This week’s assignment was a self portrait. These self portrait pictures will allow you to see the photographers who are doing this project and put a face to a name. Self portraits are definitely not most people’s favorite thing to do, but it forces us to be on the other side of the camera and remind ourselves what our clients go through!

Enjoy Fifty-Two on Friday!

My Fifty-Two Fridays project today documents three important sides of me … the mommy, the photographer, and the teacher.  This was taken early morning at school on the Kindergarten playground.  Of course Brooks, my favorite muse, is the center of it all.  I’m looking forward to sharing this project with you!  2011 is going to be a great year!

Please go check out the crazy talent of my dear friend Gina Maxine…she is a fantastic central coast photographer.  I did a quick little session with her family this summer that is one of my favorites!  We are already planning my family session with her this summer.  I can’t wait!  xoxo

Elisa - How did I miss this? It’s a beautiful self-portrait Jules… says so much about you! 😀 I love how Brooks is included & he’s running off. As parents, aren’t we always enamored with waiting & watching what our child’s next step in life will be? 🙂 Also, how you incorporated the dreamy texture with you being in such focus.. is a mystery, but I LOVE it!! It’s almost polaroid-esque.
