365

Hey er’body. I’ve decided to embark on a Project 365, which is where you commit to capturing one photo a day for an entire year. I know it really doesn’t sound that challenging, but I’m sure there will be days to come where I’ll be all, “What’s the point? No one cares. Who the hell wants to see a picture of my shoelaces??” Most people that do this sort of thing probably start on the New Year, but that’s not how Dougie Crowther rolls. Nope. Instead, he chooses a random day…say, April 16th. Yeah, that sounds good.

I’ve decided not to set any rules for myself in this project, and am hopeful that I can do this entirely with my DSLR (which means I need to try and start lugging that thing with me anywhere I go…a challenge in itself). It’s simply an experiment that will force me to pick up my camera every day and edit more often. Realistically, I probably won’t be able to post each day, so I will strive to make sure I at least post in bulk once a week. They won’t always be pretty (unless the wife is in them of course), and they most certainly won’t be perfect, but it will be a glimpse into my life (which you’ll find is just too exciting for reality TV). With that said, let’s do this!!

P.S. – The format of this post will be a bit different than my others, as this one will be continually updated as the year progresses. I’m also embedding the images from Flickr to save storage space on my WordPress, so hopefully there are no issues with the images loading properly.

Day 29. Penelope making a splash at Double Rock. It was a really nice day taking the kids for a walk to the park, then had a much needed date night with the wife that evening. Thanks Steph and Joe for watching the kids!

Day 25. A shot from a newborn session I had with this super nice family. They were my first clients that I’ve never previously met through friends, which must mean I’m finally starting to expand out of my bubble. Pretty stoked!

Day 23. First hair cut for Lucas on Mother’s Day! We were going to have Aunt Erin cut it, but we got impatient and have been too busy to go see her. Karla figured she’d give it a shot, and I think it turned out pretty slick.

Day 9. Lazy Sunday for mommy and daddy (and the dogs, as usual) after an eventful Saturday. Here’s Penelope enjoying a snack, and Lucas enjoying his sock.

Day 8. Getting Lucas’ birthday party planned and prepped was a bit stressful to say the least. But in the end, I think it turned out a success. Thank you so much to all our friends and family for coming out and celebrating our little guy turning the big O-N-E!

Day 2. Had some alone time with Lucas for a few hours while Karla was out with Penelope at Gina’s baby shower. I let the little guy do some roaming around. And just like his dad, he can’t seem to stay away from the kitchen.
