Anyway, twelve months and twelve photos later, the project is done! Well, let's be honest, I probably took well over a hundred photos just to get one decent one each month. The first few months were the easiest as Sully would literally just sit in place wherever I propped him. My only challenge was getting him to smile. Month six was when things started to get more challenging. He wasn't moving, but he was more interested in playing with the owl pillow than posing for the camera. Months eight through twelve were the most challenging as by this point, Sully was on the move and would constantly try to stand up on the chair or go face-forward off the chair. I'd be lying if I said there weren't a few close calls!
Despite not putting a lot of forethought or planning into these photos, I'm so glad I did them and stuck with it! The end result (despite all the photos being slightly different colour tones - photographer I am not!), was worth it and I love seeing the change in him from month to month. I also included some of my favourite blooper photos from each month, because really, they are awesome and truly represent what mostly went on behind the camera!
