December Photo Challenge

I think one of the most important reasons to take photos is to tell your family’s story. We build the narrative day by day, shot by shot, until we can look back through an album (in our hands or on our phone) and see our story. Sometimes it’s easy to forget to add a page into that story each day. We’re busy. Our to do list is growing longer and longer. Sometimes it just doesn’t seem like there’s anything memorable to be taking photos of. But a day spent on the couch watching Christmas movies is just as worthy of a photo as a day dressed up to see Santa. I’ve put together this December Photo Challenge to help you remember to see those small moments as well as the big ones.

December Photo Challenge-Photos Scattered

Commit to taking an intentional photo every single day of this month using the prompts below. If it doesn’t directly apply to your life, make it yours. Some are specific, some are not. Interpret them in your own way and start telling the story of your family, one photo at a time.
