A group of my local photographer friends and I have set out to document a slice of our lives during this time in our world. Our project is called “THE FAMILY WAS HERE,” and is taken from the original project by KETTI PHOTOGRAPHY called “THE KIDS WERE HERE.” The idea is simple but gives such a strong message: to document what our family leave behind during our day to day lives as we are quarantined at home.
The purpose is to not only document the “messes,” but to capture a part of our lives and our children’s lives and to record these irreplaceable memories. And although these things may seem trivial today or even a burden at times, these “messes” are the ones that will mean so much to us tomorrow and will be some of the most important images we will ever photograph, besides those of our children. We hope this encourages others to take photographs at this time and to remember how these “messes” will soon be wonderful memories. When people work together and do things together- great things can happen! Here are some of the sweet messes from this week in my house.

Also, yesterday I taught a FREE online class for moms to help them learn how to take better photos of their kids! If you want to watch the replay of that class, click HERE!
