Projects throughout the years: 52 weeks of us, take two, 2012 – 2014

I started another 52 weeks of Us in November of 2012 when I shot a photo for our Christmas card that year. These projects are some of my absolute favorites because without them, there wouldn’t actually be a lot of pictures of us together, and I try to keep them fairly candid, so it really feels like a peek back at our real life over the course of a year. In this case, it’s a little more than a year. I missed a few weeks here and there, but I decided not to give up on having a full set of 52 weeks.

The full set is on flickr, but here are my favorites:

Projects Through The Years: 2012 in video

Remember this series? Bringing it back. 2012 was a great year. I had a photo in 5×5 magazine, we got to spend time with good friends, I had jury duty and didn’t expire from the experience, we took a mini-vacation and pretended to be tourists in our own city for our anniversary, I turned 27 and had a dinosaur themed birthday party, and I started a video project on my birthday in August that led me to shoot a few seconds of video everyday for the next year (that will be my next post in this series!)

May – #cy365 -Weeks 18-22

Okay, so, you know, I took a couple of months off of sharing these here, but I kept up with the project! The summer is such a drain on my creativity and we have had some busy, new life things the past couple of months.

Week 18:

123. Adventurous. A book in the bath.

Projects throughout the years: Failed 52 weeks, 2012

I started 2012 with a bit of photo project burnout, but I was still pretty addicted. I did a bunch of challenges on a month by month basis for most of the year. I also started a 52 weeks project of diptychs shot on Sunday that I called Sundae. I only did 19 weeks, whoops! It was hard to take photos on one specific day of the week, and Sundays are my laziest day, so it was doomed to fail.

Here are all 19 shots! I really love them, anyway!

Projects throughout the years: A picture a day in 2011.

2011 was a good year. We had a blizzard, I learned to crochet, we took a train to San Antonio and all year, we celebrated lots of life with lots of family. Looking through the photos for this year feels extra bittersweet to me.

Today we are going to say goodbye to this amazing lady. The sky is currently gray, and rain is slowly dripping off the eaves, and off the eaves of her house next door, too, which gives me a feeling. I feel so grateful to her for the part she did in raising Shaun, and for all the times she simply called me “granddaughter.” I feel lucky that I got to eat her chocolate pie, that I sleep most nights under one of her quilts, and that the last time I saw her she squeezed me so tight, still so strong, and told me she loved me. Goodbye Grandma, I love you too.

Projects throughout the years: 3rd 365 self portrait set, May 2010-2011

In May of of 2010 I got a new dSLR and I was feeling super inspired. Really, in a lot of ways, with my newly short hair and camera, I was feeling reborn. It was the first time things felt really normal, or even a little exciting, after my dad died.

In December we went back to Disney World, we drove all the way to Florida. It was probably my favorite of our 3 trips there.

In February 2011 we had an amazing blizzard. Super rare in Oklahoma, so we were snowed in for over a week, and it was really fun. I also taught myself how to crochet that week, and it became one of my favorite things to do for the next several years.

Here are some highlights from that set:
