Welcome to the 5th Annual “A Day in the Life of…” photography project! The concept is simple, but the results are awesome.  Take one picture every hour, for one day, and an unique hour by hour snapshot of your day is created.

Introducing The 3rd Annual “A Day in the Life of…” Project

"A Day In The Life Of..."

I love, love, LOVE the "A Day in the Life of..." photography project!  Every year I pick a day in January to take one picture every hour from the moment I wake up until I go to bed that night.  I end up taking pictures of the ordinary - supper prep, cranky babies, trips the library, a cup of coffee, my computer screen. These ordinary pictures are actually quite extraordinary.  They are my everyday.  They are my here and my now.  They are a day in my life. I feel like I've given myself an amazing gift to be able to look back at a typical day from the past years and see the changes from year to year.  The gift of being able to see … [Read more...]

A Day in the Life of… Emily!

8:00 AM

I am so excited about the "A Day in the Life of..." photography project!  The idea is simple.  Take one picture every hour for one day.  The result is an hour by hour snapshot of your day!  On February 1, 2011 I'll be hosting a link up for everyone to share their days. This project isn't just for bloggers!  If you email me your photos I'll post some for you.  Here are some photographs from one lady that did just that. Emily is the mom to one adorable little boy.  She was able to stay home with him for months before returning to her job this is week.  Lucky for me, Emily took her pictures just before her maternity leave ran out.

A Day in the Life Of… Rebekah from 2007!

8:00 AM

For one day on January 18, 2007 I carried my camera everywhere and I took one photograph each hour. My goal was to capture a picture every hour that would represent whatever I was doing at that moment. Life was a lot different back then!  I was working full time as an administrative assistant at a travel agency.  My hubby and I were living in an apartment & enjoying our child-free lifestyle.  I'll be doing another "A Day in the Life of..." photography day next week and I can't wait to see how different January 2007 is from January 2011! A Day in the Life of Rebekah - January 18, 2007 8:00 Am - Getting my lunch out of the fridge and … [Read more...]

A Day in the Life of…

4:00 PM

Four years ago I was wife with no children, working a full time office job and my latest toy was a new digtital camera.  Inspired by my new camera, I decided to document a day in my life through photography. For one day on January 18, 2007 I carried my camera everywhere and I took one photograph each hour. My goal was to capture a picture every hour that would represent whatever I was doing at that moment. Looking back, it is interesting to see how nearly everything in my life has changed - my job, my house, my family, and even the TV show I was watching that day is now off the air! I've decided it is time to do another "Day in the … [Read more...]
