A PORTRAIT OF MY CHILDREN

Last year, I took a photo of my kids every week, until the year was over. I had hoped to keep the tradition strong and do the same again this year, but stopped after just twelve weeks. Looking back through the photos this morning and seeing just how incredibly cool documenting their growth and personality week after week truly was, I’ve decided to give it a go once again. Those photos are really something special.

Julian: Practicing a little AC/DC tune on the guitar.
Plum: Wearing Mama’s hat and making funny faces.
Birdie: It’s a pink Push-Pop kind of day!
Sailor: Talking up a storm these days and always has a car in hand. Always.

    I love how much character they each have.

    I was wondering what happened to the series! It’s tough to keep photo habits going; glad it’s back!

  • Kaylan

  • Alexandra

    Yay! I’ve missed this feature – so fun to read what they’re up to.

    Warm Regards,

    They each are so different — I feel that their personality is captured as well. Such a great idea. :] // ▲ itsCarmen.com ▲

    I love this idea…I can literally see the changes in my kids in just a few short months of photos. What beautiful photos you take!

  • Alexandra

    Que bom! Eu também adoro ver o tempo a passar ao olhar para os retratos dos meus filhos. Gosto muito deste Projeto 52. Abraços

    Glad you are back ! I also love seeing the time going by looking at the pictures of my children . Really like this Project 52. Hugs

    YAY! So glad you are picking it back up! You inspired me to start the series this year. :) I’ve not been the best at keeping on track with it, but I’m so thankful to have the photos that I do. In years past, I’ve not taken nearly enough photos of my kiddos and that made me sad. This year, I have a whole book full of photos of them after working on this series – I just put together an order at Artifact Uprising and can’t wait to see how it turns out.

    You are always such an inspiration! Thank you for sharing so much of your life with us readers!!

    Lots of love,
    Jessica

    Sailor is getting so big. I mean so are the others too but if you are anything like me, the baby is where you can really tell they are getting older. My youngest is 10 now and I can’t believe she will be in MIDDLE SCHOOL next year. Enjoy the snuggles now. They disappear overnight. :(

  • Ella

    I really missed that, so I am happy to see them.

  • june

    I love this idea! I plan on doing this with my son as well. Thanks for the inspiration. Can you please tell me what kind of shoes Sailor is wearing. They look adorable! Thank you!

  • Anna

    Oh I’ve missed these! :)

  • marie

    I need to start this portrait series with my sons too! My son used to have a toy car with him all the time too. Haha boys.
