Project Ten, December

   Well my friends, it has been a full year of my Project Ten experiment. Looking back, I think it helped me to push to shoot more personal things, although sometimes it felt daunting too. I have had a few late months (like this one), but overall I think it caused me to look for the beautiful in the everyday. It pushed me a bit to do some story telling of my own life, instead of just the lives of others. I was also challenged not to show only the beautiful things, but also the reality (see Benjamin below in a few shots :) 

   We had a jam packed weekend full of fun things our kids were a part of, as well as a visit to Santa. I thought I would just share all of these family things I was capturing over the weekend for your enjoyment!
