Photo A Day - Day One {New Year - New Life}

A bit of tradition amongst photographers is to start each year with A Photo A Day as a record of the first month of the year. Sometimes some people mix it up a bit and start from the first day of their holidays... check out Katie's 30 Days of Summer, but the idea is that we record a small snippet of our lives to look back upon and cherish.

You don't have to be a photographer to take part! You don't have to know how to take a technically perfect image, nail the composition or process it like a pro in photoshop. It doesn't have to be art. Just pick up your camera (or your phone!) and snap one shot each day. One shot to say this happened, I was there, I bore witness. You won't regret it.

This is my day one. A self portrait of my 20 week and 3 day pregnant belly. We're expecting a baby girl in May this year. (Love being able to say 'expecting this year'!) I'm so excited to meet her.

Day 1:  New Year - New Life.
