I did it!!!

When my friend Tatiana asked me if I wanted to post one photo per day during 2011 to a blog she created titled Project Exposure 2011, I reluctantly agreed.  The goal was to take one photo each day that captured my life living in an international city, in my case, TORONTO.  I was excited to be part of a photo project and eager to begin taking photos, but I was nervous that I would run out of things to photograph, be too busy to do it and quite frankly, not have photos good enough for daily viewing!  Although the project was challenging, I have to admit, I really ENJOYED it.  I was able to learn so much simply by taking so many photos (some days I would take as many as 30 or 40 photos).  I enjoyed seeing the photos of the other participants ---  they really inspired me to try new things and strive to take better photos.  After it was all over, I really wanted something TANGIBLE to show for it.  I made this photo book which I hope to order if and when Shutterfly runs a good sale! Until then, I will keep taking photos.  Project Exposure 2012 is up and running!  This year, we have 10 participants!  We are only posting one photo per week but this motivates me more than ever to find that one photo each week that I can be proud of!

Shutterfly photo books offer a variety of layouts and cover options to choose from.


  1. That is really cool!!!! (Watching my coupons for you too!)

  2. Jen, what a fantastic idea! I really enjoyed each and every one of your photos in 2011. It was a fun project. :)

  3. I think the same! I just looked thru every page and enjoyed it so much. So many ideas and so many great family times. Hopefully they can have a sale soon and you can have it printed. GREAT job!.
