365 Project for 2016

A professional photographer’s personal project of capturing one photo a day for an entire year. Family. Friends. Love. Life. 365 Moments.

 

My last 365 Project was in 2012, so it is time once again for me to capture everyday life moments…big moments, small moments and everything in between. This project is about the simple and personal goal of shooting and choosing one photo to define each day of the year. It’s about documenting my life — real life, and the people, events, activities, and things that are important to me and inspire me. In this digital age of shooting a million pictures on our phones, the challenge is choosing to use our real DSLR or film cameras and printing our photos. So just like my first 365 project, I will be shooting this with mostly with my Nikon DSLR and printing these moments in a book that our family can enjoy and keep for years to come. I’m still amazed how many times I catch my kids and their friends flipping through our first book. It’s a treasure. Thanks for stopping by! This project is also on Instagram at @heatherdurham2016 if you want to follow there. I hope you’ll be inspired to shoot and print your life.

Sometimes you need a Sunday afternoon with a girlfriend to be inspired and dream a little. Amazing job Chris Reebals and team from Christopher Architects & Interiors. It was gorgeous.

It’s been 3 years since my last business photos were taken and I’m supposed to get new ones taken tomorrow by my fab intern, Abbie. I haven’t had time to shop for something to wear until 8:00 tonight. I think I may just wear this. Ugh.

When life is mundane and there’a nothing exciting to shoot, the 365 Project will probably default to the pup, who’s getting bigger by the day. Feel free to unfollow as needed. ha ha. ;)

Spent the day photographing a beautiful Lake Martin home designed by Christopher Architects. The rest of the team left early, so I enjoyed a peaceful and quiet afternoon to myself…just me and my camera.

We passed this ferris wheel every day while were were in Atlanta. So tonight, after dinner, while I was waiting on rush hour traffic to clear before heading back to Birmingham, I decided I would go check it out…and ride it…by myself. It lit up in several different colors. I waited for the best one.

This kid is 94 and we celebrated him tonight. My Grandad truly is the kindest, most loving man I’ve ever known. I can honestly say I don’t think I’ve ever heard him speak an unkind word about another person. Ever. He’s a prince and I love him to pieces.

I originally posted another photo for today, but then this happened later that night, and I knew it was the one I wanted in our book. It stole my heart.
