I loved the first year of the Free 52 Project so much that I couldn’t possibly give it up. The images that came from it were by far my favorites from 2016. I found an unexpected fulfillment that I had been lacking in my work. A new happiness that came from intentionally setting aside time to shoot… for me! The more I shot, the more I made an effort to document our everyday outings too. That was a welcomed side effect. So often I allow myself to get bogged down by life & work that I resort to shooting my family with my iPhone. While that’s awesome for some things, I was missing the opportunity to give my family (and myself) dynamic images of our life. The project forces me to stay on top of my editing by keeping me accountable each month. I love the images I create so much that it’s hard to go a day without uploading them to see what I did (or didn’t) get. With freelensing so much of what you capture can be a miss but it can also be a radical combination of bokehlicious light leaked goodness. The unknown is worth every single click.
I look forward to another year of shooting & being inspired by the ladies of The Free 52 project. We have quite a few new free lens loving faces that will be joining in next month &, of course, a lot of familiar ones too.
P.S. I had a couple people reach out to me about purchasing my nature prints for their homes. The gallery is up & available here if you’re interested: Art Prints for purchase
This was my January…

Oh. my. goodness…are you kidding me? This stuff is unbelievable. You started 2017 out with a bang…I just love so many of these. Wonderful stories, colors, scenes…awesome. and inspiring <3
Gorgeous work, Kristin!
Absolutely stunning, as always! I felt like I was right there with you for the snow photos, what memories. I also love how you got in the frame in your son’s shot when he lost his tooth. Your quote ‘the unknown is worth every single click’ really resonates with me and is why I also adore what freelensing has brought to my both personally and professionally. Thanks again friend.
Wow- these are all so alive with color and vibrancy. I want to hang those succulent shots all over my house 🙂
Your month is fantastic and the contrast between the winter wonderland and warm green house is outstanding. I especially love the log cabin shot!
These are so good!
