September family portrait .... teaser

I have loads of concepts that I want to try for this project, but I also try and go with the flow, so when we found ourselves in Coney island for the last weekend of summer, I could not let the opportunity pass by. I remember having gone there over ten years ago, and already  had that long wooden  boardwalk in my head before we set out. In the end, although I like this photo, the "official" September portrait ended up being something that happened out of the blue, as usual.

Still editing it, but thought I'd share this in the meantime.

This project started in January 2011.

I take one portrait of the whole family, myself included, once a month.  Wherever we are, whatever we are doing, whatever we are wearing.

Sometimes it's planned. Mostly, it's not.

I started doing this mainly because I realised that I was never in any of the family photos. 

It was meant to last  for the duration of 2011, but we are  enjoying it so much that it has carried on into 2012. Don't know when or where it will end. 

Every family should do this. Won't you give it a try and share with us?
