April Love 2020

 

Welcome!

Unexpected and unusual things are happening in our world right now and the majority of us are holed up at home to help protect others, so I’m really happy to be able to share some April Love with you! This is a very gentle photo challenge to help bring creative mindfulness to our days. Not only is this the “home edition” — you should be able to photograph something at home every day — but I’ve also added some extra prompts so we can start on Monday 23rd March. Yes!

There are no emails and no pressure to keep up. You can get involved as much or as little as you want. Take photos every day or just dip in when you feel inspired. Get your kids involved! Share your photos in the Facebook group, on Instagram with our hashtag #aprillove2020 or just keep them for yourself. There are no rules.

I’ve created a list of photo prompts to be explored throughout the month, a mix of straightforward things-to-shoot and a few more thoughtful prompts, so if you’re not sure how to illustrate the latter try simply sharing a moment from your day. Use the challenge as a way to give yourself ten minutes to notice your surroundings and take a breath. Keep it simple. Enjoy digging into your home with your camera and maybe spend a bit of time in your journal, too. Or not! Again I say: there really are no rules.

 

 

Optional sharing!

There are two ways we can gather as a community:

1. Join the Facebook group over here to share your photos and insights

2. Share your photos on Instagram using the #AprilLove2020 hashtag

Happy April Love, everyone! xo
