February 2017 Photo A Day Instagram Challenge

Join us for the February 2017 Photo A Day Challenge!

February Photo A Day Challenge

Ah, February! Such an amorous month with Valentine’s Day around the corner. It’s a great reminder to love with all your heart, to be authentic in loving who you are, and to celebrate the opportunity you are given to love others. As busy moms, I can see how busy-ness can make life challenging to feel the love, but don’t you allow the drama of busy to hinder your true purpose in life…to love others. I used to loathe Valentine’s Day because I was so focused on projects, projects, projects!!! But what I failed to see was how much my husband just wanted to be with me and show me affection, or how much my children wanted me to spend time with them. Don’t be like the ‘old me’.

Here is our February Photo A Day Challenge. Scroll below to check out the February 2017 Photo A Day list, and all the details to join in – it’s free, it’s easy (one photo a day, people!), and it’ll create all kinds of buzz and interaction on your Instagram (which translates to more exposure, more likes, and more followers – if that’s what you’re looking to achieve out of this challenge).

If you’re new, you’re not the only one – I’ve played with other challenges but this is my first time doing my own thing and I’m so glad you’re here to grow with me. We’ve created twelve months worth of photo a day challenges so we’ll be doing this every month in 2017.

Join our Facebook group to share your photos, make new friends, inspire each other and learn a thing or two about photography.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE IN THREE EASY STEPS:

First: It’s really, really simple! Just look at the list each day and take a photo using the prompt for creative ideas and inspiration. For example, 1. is for Day One which starts on January 1 and the photo prompt word is ‘Sunset’. All you have to do is take a photo of the sunset in your area.

Second: Share your photo on Instagram or any social media outlet you want to. There’s no rule to this. You can share your challenge photo on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and Google+. Anywhere really. Join our TIM Photo A Day Facebook group to share in there too so we can all support and encourage one another. Simply use our designated hashtag #VowToStandOut.

Third: TheItDad and I (and hopefully others, as our little group grows) will share our favorite photos from each day’s prompt on our Instagram accounts. We’ll tag you if you are featured and you can check them out by following @TheItMom and @TheItDad on Instagram.

Here’s a post breakdown of how the overall Photo A Day Challenge works. If you want the list emailed to you each month, subscribe in the box below:
