If you’ve been following me for awhile, you’ll remember Stories in Seven. After a year of that project, I was really sad when that group decided to bring the blog circle to an end. It was such a motivator for me and I learned a lot about my own shooting style. It’s sometimes hard to narrow down my images, so having a set number that I was allowed to share forced me to be more purposeful in the way I chose to shoot a story.
BUT, along comes 5 on 5! It’s a similar concept with an all new group of photographers (well, new to me! Some of them have been at this awhile!). I was super grateful to be included and am so excited to get started. 5 on 5 is a blog circle made up of documentary family photographers who have committed to telling a story in 5 images on the 5th of each month.
This is the story of the hose. Every time we go over to Nana and Papa’s house we bring a change of clothes. There’s something magical (and messy!) about being allowed to run free in their yard and garden. There’s dirt and plants and rocks and mud and the hose…Bennett has only recently figured out how to turn it on and maneuver it himself. And he is SO proud!
Be sure to follow the 5 on 5 circle to see the other photographers’ August storytelling! You can start by visiting Iowa birth and documentary family photographer, Melissa Clark of Heart Shot Photo
