2015 Project 52 – Week 19 - FamilyAnton and I had an amazing weekend Celebrating our Engagement and Anton’s Graduation with his Masters in English Education. We were so blessed to have most of our family in town for such a momentous occasion. Now having a professional photographer in the family comes with pros and cons.

Pro: If I feel like “working” then we have high quality images capturing the moment.

Con: Sometimes I don’t want to “work”. I just want to relax and be “in” the moment.

Pro/Con: Depending upon who you are and your personality you may or may not want your picture taken every few minutes.

Pro: Inexpensive if not free digital downloads.

Con: The photographer still owns the copyright even if they extend a print release.

2015 Project 52 – Week 19 - FamilyI’d love to have you join me for my Project 52, even if it is only for a month or sporadically throughout the year. Every month, I will provide a list of weekly prompts for you to use to inspire your weekly photos.  All you have to do is use the hash tag #jdvbymproject52 when posting your weekly photo on Instagram or Facebook, and you can join in the fun!  And I am going to be following along with these prompts too, so be sure to follow me on Instagram or Facebook as I complete my first 52 week photography project!

Here is a peek at the prompts for the next four weeks:

may 18th| family

may 25th| summer time

june 1st| just for fun

june 8th| time capsule

The weeks will go Monday to Sunday. It is okay if you miss a week or are off by a few days. Just pick back up where you left off! As reminder, if you would like these prompts to be emailed right to your inbox every month, be sure to subscribe to my blog!
