My challenge is "12 in 2016" - taking a photo of Aria once a month all year. Not just any picture (because I can usually be found behind my camera) but a picture where Aria is both looking in my direction and with a genuine smile. Some months are more successful than others but the only picture you regret is the one you don't take.
This month I didn't get her looking or a big smile, but this picture was my favorite of the bunch. I love the way her little hands are holding each other and the string. Sometimes life knows better than the photographer.
This is also the third year of having a mini photo shoot with a heart balloon (or three). I'm a sucker for the traditions!
Please link-up any photography challenge you've been working on this year below! The link-up will be open until the end of the month, so add your link anytime between now and then. You can also share your pictures on instagram or twitter using #thepictureperfectproject. And, don't forget the next link up is on March 10th.
Have a wonderful Valentine's Weekend!
