Tell your story, even if you didn't get a perfect photo | The Nerd Nest

For my version of Ali Edwards’s December Daily this year, I started on November 24 so I could capture the week before December and how we celebrate Thanksgiving too. Because I’m using my photo and journaling prompts from Daily Doc | Holiday Edition to document the holidays, the extra days mean that I get to use more of the 40 prompts, too! For those of you following along with Daily Doc, this is my take on prompt 31.

I wanted to capture how excited Eliza was about her Haudenausonees (Iroquois) project and presentation at school, but we’re not morning people and I didn’t grab (or fix the settings on) the camera quick enough. Even though you can barely see the project, I think her blur running to the bus captures the excitement well! I also added in a prep photo from the night before to give the story more context: you don’t have to stick completely to the photo a day idea!

The journaling reads:

“Haudenausonees Project — Eliza’s presentation on the Iroquois was today. I didn’t have time to take her picture, but I sure caught her super excitement rushing to the bus! Longhouse!– We were still finishing the project the night before. So much glue and SO many sticks. Awesome!”

To take the pressure off and give me plenty of time to complete each layout and photograph it in daylight, I’m sharing a day in this album every afternoon through the end of the year, two days after the day I document! To tune into the daily documenting with photos and words, follow me on Instagram, Twitter, or Flickr. Find the rest of the album here.
