We are a group of local photographer friends who have set out to document a slice of our lives during this time in our world. Our project is called “THE FAMILY WAS HERE,” and is taken from the original project by KETTI PHOTOGRAPHY called “THE KIDS WERE HERE.” The idea is simple but gives such a strong message: to document what our family leave behind during our day to day lives as we are “to stay” at home.
The purpose is to not only document the “messes,” but to capture a part of our lives and our children’s lives and to record these irreplaceable memories. And although these things may seem trivial today or even a burden at times, these “messes” are the ones that will mean so much to us tomorrow and will be some of the most important images we will ever photograph, besides those of our children. We hope this encourages others to take photographs at this time and to remember how these “messes” will soon be wonderful memories.
When people work together and do things together- great things can happen.
Boredom has hit the Fahey household this week. B decided to color his hair, ate too many Cheetos, and played lots of Xbox. Our poor dogs were way overdo for a grooming, so we did our best to clean them up. Brigid had decided this year to play softball and the spirit wear arrived this week. And finally, the hardest day for me this week was the Cardinals home opener- that wasn't. We all wore our Cardinal gear (well, all but one.) At times, we get frustrated with the situation, however for me the silver lining is the much needed family time. My kids are growing up too fast. I will treasure this time with them forever.
Please continue to look at my fellow photographers week. - START HERE TO SEE THE TALENTED WORK OF Amanda @ Amanda Camden Photography.
