Why You Should Take a Picture Everyday

There’s one thing that I love about photographing my everyday and it is the satisfaction of seeing our everyday and adventures in a book at the end of the years. It’s a way for me to preserve our memories and leave a legacy for my kids.

 I cherish the photos I take and the photos taken by my friends and family. Because I cherish them so much I love to share them. I love posting our family adventures on social media so that friends and family can see in real-time the adventures that we are taking but my favorite part is to create a photo book for each kid at the end of the year that has pictures from every adventure we have taken that year.

Starting a photography project is a big undertaking but I can guarantee you that it will pay off in the end. Here are 4 reasons why you should shoot every day!

You never know what your day will bring 

We don’t wake up each morning knowing how our day will unfold so taking your camera with you to capture your day is a great way to document the ups and downs. Even the ordinary needs to be remembered! If we can’t tell what a day will bring there’s no way for us to predict how a year will unfold, therefore taking a photo a day is a great way to remember how you began the year and how the year ended. And pictures are a great way to remember what we have to be thankful for.

You children will thank you

This became so true for me when my mom passed, I was extremely thankful that she had taken pictures of us as a family and pictures of us with her, they are a great way to look back and remember all of the good times. And now that she’s gone pictures of her are what sparks the memories I want to remember forever.  

If you have children your photos will most likely include your day to day adventures with them which will be so very exciting for them to look back on in the years to come. If you don’t have children it is just as important to photograph your daily life. There’s nothing more fun for your children than seeing what your life was like before you had them. Children love to see what you look like what you did and what you were passionate about.

Your Photography Skills will Improve

There is something to be said about what an impact picking up your camera every single day can do for your photography. I was amazed at how much my photography style and camera skills drastically improved by taking a photo a day. By the end of the year, I could visually see an evolution in my photography skills as the days and months went by because I learned so much about photography and my camera every single day. 

Feeling of accomplishment 

It’s a really great feeling when you take your final picture of the year. You will feel it every time you see your images. This is why it is even more important to celebrate the completion of your 365 photography project with your family and friends by making a blurb book of all of your pictures.  A photo book is also a great way to see how far your photography has come, you’ll get to see the picture that you took at the beginning of the project and the picture at the end and I can guarantee there will be a huge difference in those two pictures.

So what is stopping you? Of every photographer who has completed a 365 project, not one has had any regrets. Whether it is to photograph memories for your family or to help improve your photography one day at a time there are too many wonderful reasons for you to pick up your camera and take a picture every day!
