Mavis: One Month Old

Day 1 – April 8th 2018

Many years ago I did a photo project alongside some friends called a 365 where you take a picture of yourself every day for a year. I kept mine going for over 500 consecutive days and the result was really cool to look back on, as well as being a great way to get to know myself and boost my self esteem. I haven’t had the motivation to do another one over the last 6 years, but since my daughter was born I have been taking a lot of photos of her (of course!) Actually, without trying, I had already taken a photo of Mavis every day for the first 3 weeks of her life and the idea struck me to do a 365 for her to document her first 365 days on earth. This will be a really beautiful keepsake to pass on to her one day (I turned my photos into a photo book and a large poster graphic) as well as a really neat way to document how a baby grows over the first year of life!

So once a month I’ll do an update to share the photos, and at the one year mark I will put together a chronological collage poster and booklet. This should be fun!

  1. ohm goodness cute alert. Firstly congratulations to you all (including the fur babies) What a gorgeous darling you have. Seeing her grow up in just a month – wow. What a brilliant idea to document her life by a photo/s a day… looking forward to watching her grow xx Much love to you all xx

    • Thanks so much! I’m really excited to see the growth. Seeing how much I changed in a year was wild, but babies change so much more so this should be really cool 🖤

  2. […] Our wonderful daughter Mavis is about to turn TWO! This is certainly a strange time to be alive but time marches on. You may remember I had been taking a photo of Mave every day for her first year, something called a 365 project that I have done with myself in years past. The first year has been posted on my blog month by month starting here! […]
