It has been SO much fun seeing everyone embrace video this month. Seriously – getting a live peek into so many people’s lives has been a rich reward in this cold and dreary month. Thank you to all who dived in (and to those who kept the feed going with fabulous stills) for making this month anything but humdrum!
Jenna Thiessen combined great composition and great light along with an edit full of rich tones to capture her son playing piano in this week’s Featured Image. Manda Maderich brings us a whole lot of beachy goodness in her shot from a beach in the Virgin Islands. It works stunningly well in black and white!
New this week
We’ve got a 5 week theme ahead of us for March and it’s going to be a fun one! Room by Room Challenge! We’ve spent more time in our houses this last year than ever before! We want to challenge you to find the beauty in every room of your house. But before we do that, find your comfort spot and reflect on WHY it is. This will help as you move into the next week’s locations! Catch all the details here!
New month, new theme, new album!
