The Polaroid Project

Happy New Year! How was your Christmas break? Are you still in the same kind of cheese and chocolate coma that I'm currently in? I plan on getting back to a normal way of eating over the next few days, but we are starting the year off with a family meal at Paul's mum and dads so it wont be today, especially since I'm on dessert, and I'm making sticky toffee pudding.

Today is the first day of a new year, and also, the first day of a project I've been planning for a while now. The thought of a new year brings so much excitement with it, and for us, this year more than usual with our wedding in October. While it's already more special then most, I wanted to do something to capture it all, the whole thing, so I can look back and remember even the most simple boring days. I love photography, and my pictures mean so much to me, the way they can capture a moment or a feeling forever is something very special, and I treasure then all -even the bad ones. My polaroid snaps are some of my very favourites, so this project is all about them. Starting today, I will be taking one polaroid picture a day for the entire year! By the end -assuming I remember every day, I will have 365 little moments to keep forever. For the last few months I've been building a stock of Instax film, so I'm all ready to go. I will still use it for different occasions and take the photos I usually would, but there will be one a day that is only for this. I plan on numbering them too, or making little notes, or drawing doodles. My collection of Sharpies will do the job perfectly, and I can even change colours according to seasons.

I think every so often I will post an update of how I'm getting on, and share a few of them with you, if that's something you would like to see? I'm really very excited about it! I've thought about starting it at so many different points in the last year -a birthday, and anniversary, but starting at at the beginning of something feels better. The beginning of a year sounds right, and as it's the year we get married, hopefully a very exciting one too!

This little project is purely for me, and while the thought of something taking an entire year to complete sounds like such a long time, I'm sure it will be over before we know it! Especially if 2018 is anything to go by.

  1. Aw such a lovely idea! I've been thinking of getting a polaroid as I do so miss having 'real' photos rather than just online! x
