In April 2013 I started a year-long project of my own family photography, Project 52, one moment each of the 52 weeks. I’ve been lucky enough to work on this alongside some amazing professional photographers from all over the world, each of us documenting family moments in our own unique way. We’ve been energized by some of the themes, dumbstruck by others and on occasion, completely changed the theme mid-week, but we made it and I’m so thankful for these memories. My family would like you to know that they too are excited it’s over (… shhh don’t remind them that I started an equally fun 365 day project on Instagram back in January 2014 #abbemccrackenphotography365).
Perusing 52 images is a lot to ask of anyone so here are a few of the highlights. If you’d like to know more, I showcased my Project 52 Top 10 images along with the story behind each on the blog recently. Thank you for taking time to view my personal projects. Want to learn more about me and my style of modern family photography? Please visit my About Me page. I’ll give you a hint, people have a lot of fun when I pick up my camera. I do too!

Want to know more? On my blog is a post showing my Project 52 Top 10 pictures along with the story behind each picture. If you want more personal project inspiration, my Instagram 365 is a great place to start – easy peasy to capture with your mobile device and so fun to have a whole year full of daily memories. I loved this Project 52 but I might love the IG 365 even more. Here are two recent how to blog posts to help you start a 365 Project: Why your iPhone rocks and My iPhoneography Top 10. There are lots of great tips and apps mentioned in these two articles. I hope you’ve been inspired to start a personal project too!
