day in the life [august]

It’s been a minute since I did my last ‘day in the life’ project (and by a ‘minute’ I mean more than 4 months).  But now that school has started and we’ve gotten the hang of our new routine, I thought it was a good time to bust out the big camera and document a...

day in the life [April]

I did my first ‘day in the life’ project more than FOUR YEARS ago when Colin was only 14 months old.  In the beginning, I did them quarterly.  Until last year when I set a personal goal to do them monthly (which I did… until I forgot in December because of holiday craziness).  Monthly felt...

day in the life [january]

The photos I’ve taken as part of my ‘day in the life’ series are some of my favorites from the past few years (a ‘day in the life’ is when I bust out my professional camera at home and lug it with me for a full day to document our current routine and everyday details). For 2017, I’m...

day in the life [december]

Once a quarter I bust out my professional camera at home and lug it with me for a full day to document a ‘day in the life’… photographing our current routine and everyday details.  I thought it would be a good idea to do one smack dab in the middle of the holiday craziness, of course.  The...

day in the life [september]

Once a quarter I bust out my professional camera at home and lug it with me for a full day to document a ‘day in the life’… photographing our current routine and everyday details.  I was especially excited to do this one because we had just moved into our new home and there is SO...

day in the life [june]

Once a quarter I bust out my professional camera at home and lug it with me for a full day to document a ‘day in the life’… photographing the everyday routine of our current lives.  I’ve been doing this project for 2.5 years now and even though these moments feel mundane (and honestly a little...

day in the life [december]

I knew I wanted to do one more ‘day in the life’ post before the end of the year [it’s been three months since my last one], but after busy season I wasn’t itching to pick-up the big camera.  I saw this date on our calendar… a random Wednesday… completely blank.  No preschool.  No daycare.  No work....

day in the life [june]

It feels like I just did my last ‘day in the life,’ but as re-read that post, I saw a little baby happily napping in an infant carseat, smiling in the swing, and sleeping beside our bed at night.  Now, she’s all grown up in a big girl carseat, the swing has been consigned, and...

day in the life [march]

Wow.  Exactly four months have passed since my last day in the life post.  It felt really good to bust out the big gun [my ‘fancy camera‘] and take some everyday life photos again. March 9, 2015 [Colin is 2 years old, Jillian is 5 months] Good morning! Lately, Colin starts his day by standing at the corner...

day in the life: november

This ‘day in the life’ was a lot harder to document than prior ones.  My hands are full these days and it was a little complicated to juggle the toddler, newborn, and camera.  I was really surprised when I uploaded everything and found I had more photos to share than I did from any of...

day in the life: september

In my last day in the life post, Colin was 18 months old and had just started walking.  Even though our routine has stayed pretty similar, I knew I wanted to fit in one more ‘day in the life’ before we welcome another little one.  I have a feeling I’ll enjoy looking back at these photos, remembering simpler days,...

day in the life: may

It’s been awhile since my last day in the life post so I thought it would be fun to share another day, now that Colin is 18 months old.  Even though months have passed, our routine looks surprisingly similar. May 28, 2014 [Colin is 18 months] Colin typically wakes up around 7am and stays in his...

day in the life

My son is covered in spaghetti sauce.  I see my camera out of the corner of my eye, sitting on the table [strategically placed so that it would be ‘accessible’ and I’d be more inclined to pick it up].  But my iPhone is in my pocket.  I take it out to snap the quick photo....

documenting childhood: day in the life

Back in 2014, when my son Colin was 14 months old (and I was actually pregnant with Jill and didn’t know it yet), I picked up my ‘big camera’ to try a new project. I was feeling guilty that I had this nice camera with which I documented other families, but rarely my own. I...

day in the life [september]

Three months have passed since my last day in the life.  And in that time, Jill has sprouted a killer pony tail, Colin has developed a fierce love of trains, and the kids still adore the swings.  (Don’t even get me started on how dramatically things have changed since last September!) September 14, 2015 [Colin is...

HI, I’M MISS FREDDY.

 

Actually, my name is Casey. As a newborn I resembled Fred Flintstone so my parents nicknamed me Freddy and it stuck. I am a professional photo organizer (yes, that's a thing!) who helps people all over the world make sense of their photo mess through organizing services and self-paced online courses.

 

I want to help you ENJOY your photos again!
