Document This: Scenes of Home

We love memory keeping and find it our responsibility to encourage you to document both the large and small moments in life. Sometimes we can be so focused on taking photos of the exciting events that we look over the daily items that make up our lives. That leads us to today's prompt. 

How often do you document the simple pieces of your home? We've gathered a few examples for you today, as well as some questions and ideas to help you record your story. 

  • What are your favorite parts of your home?
  • Photograph your dinnerware in the cupboards or displayed on the kitchen table.
  • Where does your family eat breakfast, lunch, or dinner?
  • Take a picture of your nightstand, bookshelf, or desk.
  • Do you have an antique, piece of furniture, or other item that tells a story?
  • What makes your home unique?
  • Photograph the front door, your street sign, or mailbox.
  • How do you use your home? Does the dog curl up next to the same window each day? Do you always relax in the same chair? Does your child have to use a stool to reach the sink?

Now that you've taken the pictures, it's time to print them out and get them into an album. Create a mini album of your house, construct a one or two page layout, or add pictures randomly to your pocket scrapbooking or Project Life spreads. Tell your story.
