May Project TEN

The twins are in the home stretch of their sixth year, which I absolutely cannot believe! They turn 7 at the end of next month and the explosion of growth this year in first grade has me left a little emotional. In one way, it's absolutely amazing. In another way, it reminds me how fast life speeds past! Weren't they just toddling around? 

They are both working on reading at their own pace, which has been a huge part of their school year. I thought I would take a moment with project Ten this month to capture them reading, which has been so much a part of their recent life. We used the setting of the library of course! We then took advantage of a rare moment without rain these last weeks and played outside for a few at the end! 

 (No, Dean is not able to read Harry Potter all on his own yet but we actually take turns, which I adore! Reading fun stories is something we can bond over!)

The last photo is a bonus photo focusing on the design element of "repetition." We are trying to challenge each other each month for the rest of this year to work on a photo aimed at pushing us creatively. Each of us will have our own interpretation and hopefully add some creative answers to each challenge! Here's to the first challenge for repetition! (And often elements of design can overlap, as with this image you could argue perspective or lines as well as the repetition of the arches). 

 

Project Ten is made up of a group of very talented photographers who are determined to document their own lives and not just the lives of their clients. Ten photos from our everyday lives on the tenth of every month. Check back monthly and be sure to check out all the other extremely talented women below!
