Just a quick reminder that Week In The Life 2021 is coming up soon! Our community documenting week is scheduled for May 10th through May 16th, 2021.
What is Week In The Life? Essentially it's a seven-day documentary project (started in 2005) that exists as an opportunity to capture the simple everyday details of your life with photos + words. One of the specific things I love about this project is that it has a beginning + an end vs. the pressure that sometimes comes with ongoing documenting adventures. The albums I've created are some of my most treasured in that they are wonderful representations of my family's life at a particular point in time. When you look at them all together they tell the beautiful story of the basic ups + downs of my/our life for one week each year.
I've got years (literally) of past blog posts that show how I've approached this project in past years - check that out here.
To help you get in the storytelling mood we've got a variety of things planned for the @aliedwardsdesigninc IG account + here on the blog the week before the documenting week and I will be hosting a $5 Week In The Life Prep Day on Saturday, May 8th (registration for the Prep Day will open on Saturday, May 1st).
We've also got a variety of products available in the shop to help guide and support your documenting. Check out those physical + digital products here.
Also, make sure to check out the #eightweekstocomplete challenge that @jess_forster has been leading for inspiration on Instagram to finish up past Week In The Life projects.
