Last December my sister Marcy came to me with an idea she wanted to do for Ardo. A picture a day for a whole year. I'm not gonna lie as soon as she told me, all I could think about was the WORK. I knew remembering to take a picture of him every single day would be a lot to remember, and then a fun project turns....not so fun? She convinced me tho considering she sees Ardo 4 days a week I'd only be responsible for 3. Good deal! On December 31, 2012 the project was over and my sister and I got to making the short video. This is the first project I've made with my mac book pro and my heart is so happy with how it came out. I thought the timing was funny because as we are putting together our short film, I saw other blogs I frequent are doing a portrait a week (ps check out Amelias blog, I just love it, she's so funny and that Ralphie!).
Remember when I said I thought it was going to be a lot of work?! I was right, it was, my sister would remind me every Thursday and every weekend. Towards the end I would tell my sister is it December 31 yet?? She'd say just a little bit longer. After we finished, I was embarrassed I complained, the finished product brought tears to my eyes, to watch my son grow up for an entire year 1 picture at a time, it's something I'll always treasure..plus the song we chose, thank you John Lennon for writing the most glorious song for a little boy. I promise the video is only 2:30 okay maybe its 2:32 but it's an easy two minutes. =)
