Hey there! It's been so long, that I'm not really sure where to start. Anyone else feeling this way as things start to open back up? I feel like my life has changed so much from where I was at the beginning of March.
Like a lot of parents, I had to set aside my work once the lockdown hit in order to take care of my family. At first, it felt surreal and I was in survival mode. Then, homeschooling and managing the constant eating and exercise needs became my new normal. It got to the point where I didn't even think about picking up my camera anymore.
I got frustrated that I no longer had the time to think about photo stories let alone edit them. It was easier to leave my camera in the bag. Instead, I picked up my crochet hook and some yarn and started creating that way.
But I've found myself drawn back to my photos and the stories they tell lately. My family has been sharing old photos on our online chats. I had a long-lost friend find me through Facebook and we started reminiscing.
And then my youngest son turned 6 and I realised that I never finished his first year album! So over the last few weeks, I've been sitting down at night when I can grab some time and finishing a page here and a page there.
And today, I finally finished it! It's off to the press and we should have it in hand by the end of the month.
I feel back. I'm ready to tell stories through photos again. #simplestorytelling #documentyourdays #photostory #shamoftheperfect #honestlydocumented #beautyinthereal #yourstoryisworthtelling #sharethejoy #timewithfamily
