My grandparents own a farm, where they have lived and raised their family forever. They had six sons, all of which help farm each year. They are my uncles and dad. Well before I ever started taking photos regularly I imagined how amazing it could be to take tons of photos of my grandparents, the six sons and the farm.
I remember telling my husband as we drove past farm land one day, “Wouldn’t it be so amazing to have the farm, Pops and Nana, and the six sons photographed?” And I remember his response as well, “Yeah, you should do it.”
But at that time, I could hardly turn the camera on, let alone photograph something so precious and with so many subjects. Now after a few months of serious practice, I am doing this project! It’s on Saturday, 4 days away.
Mostly I feel really really excited. I can’t wait to turn these photos into a big beautiful photo book to have for generations and generations to come.
This photo project is sort of going to decide if I “learned photography” well enough to consider the goal met. Hopefully, it will. Even if I do feel like the goal is met, I plan to continue working on it more and more, because maybe one day this could be a part time career for me 🙂
