Week In The Life | Links To All Previous Projects

A seven-day documentary project, Week In The Life is an annual opportunity to capture the simple everyday details of your life with photos and words. The albums I've created using the basics outlined below are some of my most treasured in that they are wonderfully true representations of my family's life at a particular point in time. From the mundane to the profound, it's those simple little everyday moments that I treasure most.

If you choose to embark on this project, especially for the first time, I encourage you to read through the comments from previous years. There are many suggestions, answers, additional information, etc. that can be found within the comment sections of each post. And remember, there's no right or wrong way to approach this album.

Here's a great post to help you get started: The Basics Of Documenting A Week In Your Life

It's an amazing adventure. Consider yourself invited.
