52 Weeks of Memories is back for 2017

If you've been following along here for a while then you'll be aware I started a weekly photography project 52 Weeks of Memories back in 2014 as a way to capture memories of my daughter. I initially intended for it to be a one off challenge for that year, but due to popular demand have brought it back each year since.

To be honest I was considering not doing it this year as my motivation waned a bit the second half of last year {due to morning sickness and pregnancy issues}, but once again I was inundated with requests for a new list. My friend also reminded me of why I started the challenge in the first place, to capture memories, and with a new baby on the way this year it seemed even more fitting than ever to want to capture special memories. So over the past few days I've created a new list for 2017 {there's a few of my favourite prompts repeated from last year, but the majority of them are brand new}. 

My interests have varied over the last few years since becoming a mum so I've aligned the new prompts with most of the things that make me happy ~ special moments, play based learning and nature. There's also a few prompts relating to seasons and special events throughout the year. I've tried to make the prompts as open ended as possible so everyone can play along, regardless of if you have kids as well. I'll also send out inspiration for each of the prompts in the weekly emails {simply subscribe to the list at the bottom of the page}.



So how do you join in and play along I hear you ask? Well, it's super simple.



1. Follow the weekly prompt for your photo - you can be as creative or literal as you like.
2. Share your photo - there are many ways you can do this:
  • via Instagram, simply use #fmy52weeksofmemories
  • on the Finding Myself Young Facebook wall
  • on your own Facebook wall
  • via the 52 Weeks of Memories Facebook group {subscribe below for access}

To help you stay motivated I've added an email list so you can get weekly prompt reminders and inspiration. I know it's tough to stay focused for a whole year and things often get in the way, so it's nice to have a friendly reminder. By joining the mailing list you'll also get access to the private Facebook group. To sign up simply fill in the form below. 

I can't wait to see all your wonderful photos throughout the year.

  1. I had planned to join in with a weekly project this year but am yet to start...hmm. Great idea, I will have to keep an eye out for the hashtag.
