As a photographer, sometimes you need to work on things outside of your normal day-to-day life and this project is going to help us (and you) challenge, grow and creatively develop your photography as a whole. Weekly for the next year, we will be creating images and we call it 52 Weeks of Awesomeness (52WoA)!

Here are our Week 17 – “LOVE” images!

CHRIS: This was a gift that Brisa gave to me when we started dating and the image is one of the first ones that we have together. Amazing that we’ve been together since we were babies. Yes, it was taken on a film point and shoot camera. Whoa. Also, please enjoy my frosted tips. You are welcome.

SARAH: My husband and I received this journal as a wedding gift. Neither of us are very romantic, but we decided to keep this journal on our bedside and leave each other notes throughout the years. Looking back through this journal, I noticed that he has left me far more notes like this one than I have left for him. My goal for 2014 is to tell my loved ones, especially Josh, how much they mean to me.

AUTUMN: In my family, you love each other, and you love Chinese Tuesday. ALL THE LOVE! !

For those of you interested in participating, PLEASE join us! The more the merrier! You definitely do not need to be a professional photographer, this is something you can easily do with your point and shoot, cell phone, ipad, etc. You can comment with a link to your image here on our blog or on our La Brisa fan page or you can tag La Brisa Photography in your image on your own FB page or use the hashtag #52WoA on twitter and/or instagram that way we can share your efforts with everyone else! If you are interested in joining our La Brisa Aspiring Photographer Workshop group on FB, please request to join as we will also be sharing our images there too.

Week 18, “LUST” is due Tuesday, February 25th!
