The Day to Day | Tucson and Phoenix Photographer

Summer is brutal here in Tucson and sadly for us, we spend the better part of it indoors. I hate that about this city, I LOVE being outside! However, when November rolls around, I’m positively in love with the mild “winter” here.  Double-edged sword I suppose…

Now that I’m shooting daily with my 365 project, which I love, I’ve become even more excited about capturing the day-to-day happenings in our household. It will be such a wonderful thing to show my children once they’re grown. Besides, my sewing, knitting, crocheting skills are pretty dire, so I guess I need to make up for that somehow.

Recently, I’ve found a ton of awesome photographers who have shot a “Day in the Life” project in addition to their 365. I knew I wanted to do one, but secretly wanted to wait for a super abnormally exciting day to document.

Then I realized, not only is it the dead of summer here in the Old Pueblo, but our day-to-day just isn’t all that exciting normally. Aaaannd, I did want it to reflect who we are now, even if it’s totally bland and full of fits, Legos, snacking, dishes, coffee, computer, napping, last-minute grocery trips, water-play and pee accidents (and poo too, let’s face it – aren’t you glad I didn’t include that image) Ha!

So here it is. Boring. Real. Us. Don’t fall asleep! 😉

You must see DeAnna McCasland’s “Day in the Life” series. It is GREAT and after seeing hers, I knew I needed to do my own!–week-2—personal

    Halle @ Whole Lifestyle Nutrition - What an amazing project!!! I am so inspired by this and so wish I had done something like this when my 3 girls were young (the twins are 7 and Kenna is 9)! What a gift you can give your children when they are all grown up.

    I have chosen to journal for each of my 3 girls and write through the years and plan on giving it to them when they have children. Call it a parenting handbook of probably what not to do 🙂 but I hope they will treasure it.

    I will reach out to you tomorrow…thanks so much for submitting your interest at WLN 🙂
