Project 52: Resolutions | Oceanside Photographer | Alicia Q. Photography

. I want to welcome everyone to a new year, a new start, a new way of living.  With the drop of a ball, we all resolve to do better, to be better.  I've set plenty of goals for 2012.  One of which is to complete a 52 week project documenting this nice little life I've been building.  Last year I embarked on a 365 day photo project that ended with an epic fail.  I lasted less than a week.  A more realistic option for me is this Project 52 which I'll be participating in with weekly prompts provided by My Four Hens Photography.

The first week's assignment was Resolutions.  Like I said, I have many, but perhaps one of the most important is to be a better mother.  I want to spend more time with my son.  More time playing.  More time loving and hugging, teaching and learning.  I want to say "no" less and give more.  And along the way I want to capture our time together in photos.  Making a living as a photographer sometimes means I'm less willing to take simple snaps of my own family.  That will change in 2012, too.

We started on New Year's day with a walk along the Oceanside Pier and then we played in the sand for a bit.  Here are a few shots of my beautiful boy, with the first being my official P52 photo...
