Month of Jorja
Having a bit more time on my hands before work gets busier in the spring, I took the opportunity to work on some personal projects at the start of the year. I love taking portraits and I love photographing my kids so my plan was to take a photograph of Jorja (to start with) every day in January. I wanted to try a range of different styles, from simple clean portraits to environmental portraits and trying out different types of lighting.
I anticipated a couple of potential problems. Firstly Jorja's co-operation, which turned out not be a problem at all and she happily collaborated with extra ideas. I think being involved in the process and only interrupting her day for a few minutes helped. Also, with daylight hours being short in January especially when the kids are at school on weekdays, I worried about the lack of natural light but this never became a problem as I had plenty to keep me busy with additional light. Turns out I quite like the dark.
I loved doing this so much, I was a bit sad when it was complete but I've had Dexter to move on to and keep me busy. Here's the full collection of my month of Jorja:-
