What Do Your Mornings Look Like?

I have loved looking through the lovely photos of A Year of Mornings.


I love the story behind the book. 

I love the collaboration and the outcome is stunning and simple.

I thought I would give it a try myself. 

The result was MY mornings and the early hours through my eyes.

I put my camera next to my bed so I wouldn't forget!

I captured three mornings.

None of the photos have been edited so you can see the natural light.

It was such a fun experience and really helped me look at our home, light and mornings with a new perspective.

What do your mornings look like?

    I love photographing and chronicling mornings. I did participate in a group about Beautiful Sundays and mine were always in the mornings. Maybe we can start a small group where, people take shots of their mornings once a week (or more) and share the why of the picture. Do you think that seems fun? Then create journals or an Apple book using the pictures. I’m rambling…too tired and too much wine…Anway – I’d love to work on something like that!

    fun post, If I shared my mornings in Pictures, it wouldn’t be Pretty! Crazy I like Jackie’s idea too.. Your shots are Beautiful. Jamie

    Oh, I love these photographs and this idea! You should do this once a week & (as mentioned above) begin a group. Soft morning light is just pure loveliness. Love this post. ๐Ÿ™‚

    mine look a lot like yours… except that the laptop and coffee will be seen on the front porch…
    beautiful photos “log”… think I’ll have to try this myself!

    Your photos are beautiful…. I like this idea and may try it later this week. (Oh, my, it’s Thursday already, isn’t it?) Okay, one day soon. I love morning light, so this is a great excuse to take pictures first thing one morning!

    i don’t think i could get tired of seeing these kinds of shots, the beauty (and the ugly sometimes, i guess) of it! but it is fun to try to find the sweetness, beauty, coolness in the unexpected! i love that! thanks for sharing this awesome book and your mornings!

    What a great post and I love your photos as well as Jackie’s idea! I don’t think my morning pictures would be as lovely as yours, I’m usually running around like a maniac!

  8. Tara

    Love your photos, I think i will try this maybe this weekend…love the nautural light in the mornings…perfect! ๐Ÿ™‚

    totally cool idea! my mornings are spent sitting on the back steps waiting for oscar to go poop. Yes, a very glamourous life I lead! But my morning always includes a pot, yes a POT of coffee! (with coconut creamer)

    Lovely mornings! I think I will do this. I love the idea of looking at things in a new light and since my eyes are barely open for the first hour I’m awake, this ‘otta be interesting. Thanks for the inspiriation.

    I enjoyed your photos; morning light is lovely to capture. I will watch for it tomorrow…around here:)

    my morning is me stumbling over to the computer while i frantically try to catch up on my google reader…it’s not pretty either, i can assure you…mornings are not kind to me…LOL…your mornings look very pretty Jeanne!!!

  13. Alyssa

    what a fun idea. love how your’s turned out. They looks so romantic and thoughtful. Mine – not so much ๐Ÿ˜‰ But, if I take photos perhaps I will look at it differently. Thanks for the pretty shots & idea ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Tracy

    agreed – my mornings are typically frantic – as i’m not a morning person. but – what a great challenge this is, as i can really slow it down and try to see the beauty in it….!
    THANK YOU for this post!

  15. Hi there! I just discovered your beautiful blog through “Blogging for Bliss” and I have a little award for you over at my blog! Please pop over! Suzie

    Very fun idea. I’m afraid mine would look more like bed head, but the coffee is something we have in common! Always creative….love reading your blog!

  17. tracey

    Beautiful pictures! My mornings don’t look good until I’ve had at least 1 cup of coffee. But, I will say that my 3 little ones do look awfully cute in the morning – before the whining, nagging, and over whelming noise of the day kicks in!

  18. paige

    great idea!
    i love how you chronicled just the ordinary of your day. it looks lovely by the way.

  19. koralee

    I love this book…I have it on my bookshelf..thought it would be such a good idea..a photo diary of my year….I really don’t think it would take long to do…just one photo each day…easy to post and no words needed.
    Love your images of your mornings…cute toes!
    Have a great weekend!
