Living Arrows 1/52

I have been looking for something to challenge my photography, something to help me work out what I need to do to improve my photographs. This year my New Years resolution is to stop buying new equipment and learn to utilise the stuff I have got. Finally to get rid of the label 'All the gear and no idea'.

 This week I was fortunate to find a new website run by some very talented ladies who I have been inspired by. They are a group of photographers who have joined together on I Heart Snapping. One of the best things about this site is they are mum photographers from the UK! So often these website and groups tend to be based in America. Whilst they are amazing photographers it is great to find some local talent who cope with our grey, raining, overcast weather to photograph in!

I am joining in with their project Living Arrows - It is a 52 week photography challenge. We take a portrait every week of what having children is all about.

This is week one..... Mr O learning his sounds for school on the ipad:

  6. Wow. What a lovely photo. The contrast of light and dark is so striking and gorgeous.
    And thanks for being so lovely about I Heart Snapping, we had seen so many amazing American photography sites, and the UK was just crying out for its own. There are definitely enough talented snapping mamas in this country to deserve one.
    Thanks so much for linking up with Living Arrows. x
