At the beginning of the year, I decided to embark on a small year-long project. I knew there was no way I could do picture-a-day, 52 week challenge or even the 26 week challenge. Nope. I knew I would only disappoint myself and my audience. Instead, I decided to post a monthly self portrait.

If you’re a photographer (professional or just the one who always carries around the camera) then you know the ratio of photos of you to photos of other people is a little skewed. Taking on the advice of a few other photographers, I decided to do a self portrait each month and post them here.

At first I thought this idea was a little egotistical. Then I realized that it was a great way for me to reflect on my month and sum it up with one image. It was a great challenge.

Though a little late, here’s my January 2012 self portrait. It was such a mild winter here in Indiana that I actually LIKED when we had our one bad day of ice and stranded weather. For 24 solid hours I was stuck at my house. No internet. No TV. No husband. It forced me to pick up my camera and see the world through the lens for pleasure (something I hadn’t done for a while.
