6/52 & 7/52



6/52 - A weekly portrait of my children.

Sailor, age 2: Not a big fan of getting his hair combed after bath time.
Birdie, age 4: Making her own breakfast. Here is the same thing for breakfast, photographed 2 years ago.
Plum, age 12: She’s the one I take on the most food dates, not because I play favorites, but because she’s a foodie like me and we can explore new restaurants together.
Julian, age 14: Learning how to play Imagine by John Lennon on the guitar this week. Attaboy!


7/52 A weekly portrait of my children.

Sailor, age 2: I think he wins the award for best bed head.
Birdie, age 4: She hasn’t been doing much listening these days, but she sure is cute.
Plum, age 12: They have this whole week off of school, due to the ice-storm, so it’s been straight vacation-mode—staying up late and sleeping in late.
Julian, age 14: This boy will grab anything but his winter coat when heading outside, even in the snow.

    I thought it was just my son… 13 years old and you think I was asking for him to do the craziest thing by suggesting he wears a coat – and in CT in the dead of winter – it’s COLD around here…

    Gorgeous Photos, I love that you guys have vegemite, here in Australia we love it on our toast but we have it on Sao’s (cracker Biscuits) with grated cheese or plastic cheese (the cheese that comes wrapped in plastic squares) its our favourite spread.

    So neat to watch them growing up! Usually I think Birdie looks like Aubrey, but in the second shot I can really see you in her! Beautiful family

    My son is four next week and the first non-nursery song he learnt how to sing was Imagine. Everytime he does the Woo Hoo Oooo ooo ooo, I swear my heart skips a beat!

    The progression of children growing is so bitter-sweet and this series is kicking my butt! I really need to get on board with documenting them better!

    Thanks for the inspiration :)

    It was these posts that made me really fall in love with your blog and your photography in the first place, and I always enjoy them most when I come back.
    You’re such a great storyteller with a camera.
