Kale Weekly {week 1}

August 15, 2013  •  1 Comment

So for those of you who follow my photography Facebook page, you know that I have an ongoing project named 'Kale Weekly.' I started this project in January 2013. I was able to complete a 365 project in 2012, but felt I wouldn't be able to commit to one this year. I still wanted to do to some sort of weekly project to improve on my skills and continue to document my personal life. What better way to do that than to take photos of my son each week! Since starting the project, I've only posted a few photos of him each week on my photography page. Now, I want to share all the never-before-seen photos from each week so far. Once I'm caught up, I'll continue to blog the photos that I didn't post, along with a short recap and letter to my son. I'm really glad I started this project and I'm so thankful I have the ability to capture my son's life and preserve those little (and big) moments beautifully and artistically.

 

This week: January 1st - January 7th, 2013

Dear Kale,
This is the first week of a new year and I've decided to embark on the journey of documenting your life more in depth. You have basically grown up with a camera in your face, so I think you're used to it by now. You may hate it sometimes, but I hope you learn to appreciate all the photos I take of you as you grow older. An endless amount of love goes into each photo I take. You are currently 2 years old (about 2 years and 3 months to be specific) I, your mother, am currently 20 years old (about 20 years and 8 months to be specific) And you continually astound me with your unique personality each and every day. Sometimes I just sit back and admire everything about you. You're my greatest creation and my most beautiful work of art.

It's right after the Holidays now, so our Christmas tree is still up, there is still snow on the ground, and you've been busy playing with all your new presents! (including your favorite Black & Decker tool bench that Santa brought you) This week, you also came along with me to the Devil's Backbone trail that's just a short 10 minute drive away from the apartment where we live in Loveland, Colorado. Mommy wanted to do a little photoshoot, just the two of us, to try shooting in RAW for the first time. (This is one of my photographic New Year's Resolutions) So we bundled up, and drove to The Backbone where I let you explore and we took some very meaningful photos together...
