Throughout various communities, I’ve seen people wish they could pose men better. Documenting adult men is a whole different ball game.
Every Monday (ok, most Mondays, if I’m being honest), I post a ‘Motivation Monday’ themed post in our Facebook Group. In April, I had a wild hair to challenge the group to photograph their husbands (or bestie). We’ve been saying it for months over here that we don’t want our blog to be all about photographing the documented days of our kiddos…. there’s a dozen of blogs dedicated to that subject alone. We want our audience to be able to have the ability and confidence to photograph adults too – especially the ones they know and love.

To see the photos pour in from dozens of photographers taking the challenge to photograph their husbands was pure joy in my heart! I even snapped a few of my own hubby during this challenge as I realized I hardly ever photograph him. Not only did these photographers pick up their camera and aim it towards their hubby, they did it in an unposed, documentary fashion.
Their mission was to think of the things their husbands normally do… to create a photo where they can recognize their spouse.
Homework: Photograph your hubby or another special adult in their environment. It’s easier than you think! (and then share your photos + experience with us… duh!)
This final image, in particular, took my breath away. Amazing, Gloria!!!
