a bit about your host
If you found your way over here, you may just be thinking of joining us for life in 52. I hope so! Because this project is so personal in nature, I thought I would share a little about myself. The "Meet the Flock" page on my photography website pretty much sums me up, but in a nutshell I am a thirty-something Mama of almost seven children. I am married to my high school sweetheart, Wes (of 18 years now) and up and moved to Colorado from Connecticut sight unseen about six years ago. I am obsessed with coffee, mustard yellow, almost any song with an acoustic guitar, target, photography and I pretty much thrive on chaos. I also am a professional photographer and specialize in kids and families. A fun fact is my business name is "My Four Hens Photography" and many think I really like birds but I was actually inspired by my last name (Cornish) and our then four children. We have grown a bit since then in all the ways, but I likely won't be changing my business name anything because I am a nostalgic hot mess (emphasis on hot mess.) My kids are my "why" and in many reasons the purpose for starting all those years ago, so you'll see lots of them in my 52.
All you need is a camera (it could even be your camera phone), and maybe some kind of access to social media. If you prefer not to use the Facebook group (which I understand, but completely recommend you try it) you can also share via the hash tag #lifein52 on Instagram. We may are hoping to foster an online community on Insta soon.
So you're ready to join in. It's simple to get started. Ready? You just take a photo. Start today, right now. The best part of this project is it isn't rigid. You don't need anything but your own amazing perspective and a simple camera. Use your DSLR, your camera phone or even your film camera. The sky is the limit.
