Kids Were Here | Three

If one thing is for certain this month, Kids Were Here. They were everywhere it seemed, leaving trails of chaos in their wake. I’m delighted to be a part of the collaborative project that documents the traces our children leave behind – in our spaces and in our hearts. See the entire collective on the group blog here.

Here’s what fellow photgrapher Ginger Unzueta shared this month. I think we can all relate:

“When I first began this project, I thought it would be fun to document the every day messes my children make. As the weeks have passed, this project has really become so much more than that.

It’s not really about messes at all, but about the stories they tell. It’s about traces of childhood I see throughout my home on a daily basis. It’s about the love we share together. It’s about living and being…creating, making, learning and trying. This project leaves me a beautiful story each month of the reminders that Kids are here now…and the time, well, its all too fleeting, isn’t it? We all need to embrace these moments and just live them too; because they really are the best moments of life.”
