2014 - 1/52

Each week in 2013 I photographed my children for the 52 project.  I'm not a photographer, I don't claim to be.  I don't have expensive equipment and I don't know anything about the "correct" way to photograph.  But for me, this project was never about that.  It was about documenting change rather than showcasing skills.  In fact, that is the very point of this blog.  Some of the pictures I took, and displayed through the course of the year, were just phone snaps taken on a whim, because that was what I had to hand.  My children aren't great at sitting still or at posing, but my philosophy was not to worry about that and just to snap whatever they were doing at the time, more often than not those are the best photographs for showing their true characters.

I can't pretend that this project isn't a commitment, it is.  But the reward, at the end of the year is huge.  And on that basis I have decided to commit to taking a portrait of my children, once a week, every week in 2014.

And so we begin...



This week, week one, shows Wiggles, round and baby faced, enjoying a peaceful moment. They happen occasionally, this time surrounded by the chaos of new toys.

Biscuit out in the dark, looking down protectively at her little sister.

Happily joining in with Jodi, now in her new home at Practising Simplicity.

  1. I'm so glad you're doing this again, I loved it last year. I wish I could take part but it just isn't worth the hassle :(

    1. Thank you, Amy, it's really sweet of you to say that and means a lot. I can understand that you're in a very difficult position and can't join in, which sucks for you, booooo! :( xxx

  2. Aww, just look at Wiggles' cheeks! Serious girl there. Biscuit seems like such a lovely big sister too - nice to get a shot of that x


Thank you for stopping by! I love reading your lovely comments x

If you're a rotten stinking spambot; shoooooo! Away with you!!
