A PORTRAIT OF MY CHILDREN, EVERY WEEK, FOR THE NEXT 52 WEEKS
Inspired by The 52 Project.
Finley: His messy, salty, blond hair, that he likes to have combed just so, when we wash it,with a little swish from right to left.

Some weeks are harder to capture their portraits than others. I had a whole lot of nice, sweet, scenic, lots of bright light (often in Dubai), but fairly average photos to choose from, but these two stole my heart, for they are both very much exactly as I see them . Their facial expressions, that quiet concentration, contemplating their next move, just thinking, I recognise that so well.
I love capturing their smiles, mid laugh, or a cheeky grin, but I don’t enjoy taking photos where someone is asked to smile. I want to capture my kids’ portraits naturally, so whatever they were doing at that moment in time, is what gets captured – and remembered, and documented. These are my photos of how I see them.
