The 12 “Life in Loud” founders would like to extend an invitation to other photographers to “join” our vision of inspiring and supporting artist photographers to shoot from their heart and for themselves. Block out the loud or rise above it, listen to your own intuition and make a photo just for you.
One of the goals I am setting for myself is to let go of some of the pressure I put on myself to always take professional worthy photos of my family and kids. I have found myself criticizing the pictures of my children because they are blurry, the lighting isn't perfect, their hair is messed up or they're not wearing the right outfit. I want to get pictures of my kids doing the day-to-day, the mundane, the boring normal things that we do that makes us us. These are things I want to remember. Sure I still love to get photos of them dressed up in the perfect location to blow up for our walls. But I don't want to skimp on capturing them in real life because the picture isn't perfect. The reason I started taking pictures was to remember the little things.
I thought about purchasing a point & shoot so I wouldn't have to carry around my camera (or having to whip it out and take a picture of them eating nuggets at Wendy's). Then I realized I didn't give my camera phone enough credit. So I've started taking more with it. And I've noticed that by doing this, I am getting myself in more photos as well. Another goal I'm working on.
So this is my life in loud for the week. My living room on a Saturday morning. Taken with my phone. This is my reality.
(And my kitchen. I had to take two because I don't have panoramic option on my phone. And you have to see the full picture to really grasp the chaos. Including the always present laundry in the background. )
My name is Kaci. I am a working mom of 3. Wife to Josh. Mom to Jackson, Cameron & Isabella. My life is dinner, homework, baseball, basketball, grocery lists, laundry, wine, video games, and bath time. I started this blog because I am passionate about photography and journaling, and because I wanted a place to write it all down, to rememeber little details so easily forgotten in the mad rush that is the life of a family of 5. Through my photos and words, I endeavor to capture our story.
