The Now Project – January

Hello 2017!

Here in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada January it is cold, dark and – well frankly – depressing. As many of you know my family and I welcomed a baby girl in December and my days have quickly filled with long feedings and sleepless nights. To make matters worse, most days I feel trapped in my house due to snow storms or icy roads.

Then suddenly, one of my favourite photographers, Erin Lester, proposed The Now Project. A collection of photographers who each post a weekly image showing a glimpse of their personal lives.

The entire premise of this project is to pick up our cameras more and document “the now”. To capture the normal everyday moments that seem simple and mundane.

Ah! The frost was lifted from my foggy mind and I was provided with a goal to keep me motivated during the chilly winter. And so the challenge was on.

Throughout this challenge, I am continuously in awe of the photos people are posting. The talent is astonishing. I feel a little out of my league, but also so lucky to be inspired by these creative souls.

Without further ado, here are my January images (yes…there are only 3 because I missed a week). I do hope that this is a challenge that I am able to continue all year.

    Beautiful images, Kristy! The Now Project is totally win-win: you stay motivated creatively during the dreary winter months AND you have gorgeous reminds of this time in your family’s life for years to come. It’s a fantastic idea, and I’m so glad you introduced me to it as well. (I missed two weeks and have no excuse, February will be better!!)
