"a portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013."
julian: away in florida this week.
milla plum: away in florida this week.
birdie: vegemite toast is her favorite.
sailor: another furrowed brow from this small boy.
a long term photo series has been on my list of to-do's for some time now, but i couldn't bring myself to commit to a daily project in fear of failure. i decided to challenge myself this year, but i am starting small. i am participating in a simple 52 project of my children that jodi inspired me to take part in. much more realistic for me, and it serves a purpose that i will treasure always. even though i take many photographs of my kids, i don't always get around to capturing a photo of each of them, on their own, on a regular basis. this is a great way to document change and growth and will be fun to look back on when the year is done. a photo a week, times four. it's a lot of photographs when all is said and done. a little less than 208, only because julian and plum spend time away in florida a few times a year. i am confident that i can stick to it, every single week.
here are a few series from the past that i enjoyed from around the web: andrea did a gorgeous 365 photo project in back in 2008, that kind of set the tone for the rest of us. nicole did a polaroid project a few years back that was awesome, but i can no longer find a link to it. this 365 project is lovely. my husband started his own project a couple of years ago, but never completed it. and there's THIS, my all time favorite photo series that inspired me to create my own while i was pregnant with birdie.
