A PORTRAIT OF MY CHILDREN, EVERY WEEK, FOR THE NEXT 52 WEEKS
Inspired by The 52 Project.
Sienna: Requests two things every single day; to go to the pool, and to visit her friend Viktoria. Words and sentences are flying out of her faster than we can sometimes keep up with, telling us five different, completely unrelated, things all at once before she stops and takes a break.
Finley: He put on a music and dance show for us in the garden this weekend, using a plastic toy cooker as a cd player. Dancing is his favourite, and I filmed parts of it, which he loved watching again and again afterwards.
I’m super excited to join in the 52 project this year, inspired by the very talented Jodi at Practicing Simplicity. I hope that by giving myself a challenge, and committing to this project, it’ll help me grow and develop as a creative photographer.
I love the idea of using all the portraits to create a book at the end of it, and I can’t wait to look back at all the photos and see the story they tell. Childhood flies by too quickly, we are all so busy with our everyday lives and routines, but I want to make the time; to stop, watch and capture our everyday memories, and remember exactly where my little people are in their lives right now. Their funny expressions, and twinkly eyes, their awesome personalities and their incredible imagination; real life, through my eyes.
