A portrait of sleep in my family every week in 2018

I somehow got off on my numbering this year. Life with two kids I guess. I realized today that although I completed this project, it wasn’t exactly what I set out to do. I was hoping to use my actual camera more often and do some longer exposures. In a way I’d love to leave it set up and make the same photograph every day or every week. But I’d need to somehow remember to do that, and frankly my brain, and my life, are just too full.

I’ve decided for the first time in six years not to do a year long project in 2019. I had wanted to do a 365, but knowing what this next year holds for us it just doesn’t feel realistic. I do plan to share photos here, and hope to make them often throughout the year. Maybe 2019 will be the year I repurpose this space, as the name doesn’t feel as fitting anymore. But in a way it feels sort of freeing, to not have a weekly task to hold myself to. I’m hopeful it will make my images more intentional, and less of a chore. Here’s to starting the new year without any goals, and just letting life unfold.

They are seriously snuggly in their sleep. The baby likes to sleep on top of people and has recently started sleeping on top of her sister as well.
