49/52

"A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2012."

Che: Wrapped in a serape, watching the children play on the sand below. 
Poet: She watched the big kids from afar; so many squeals.

*if you came here earlier today you may have noticed different portraits to the ones I have here now. A lovely American reader pointed out that wearing an Indian headdress is offensive to their sacred culture, hence why I took the photo down.

  10. aww, that was sweet of you to take it down. i saw it earlier and loved it so much that i didn't have the heart to mention it (though i'm glad someone, in a kind way i hope, did). i'm always a little torn on the subject because they make for such powerful images. xo

    1. Tori was very kind with her explanation of why it wasn't appropriate. I had absolutely no idea so I hope you and every other reader excuses my ignorance! x

  11. Great photos Jodi i love how you capture their little expressions so well. I loved the head piece and had no idea it could have been offensive, you learn something new everyday... Hope you are enjoying your weekend. x

  12. As an American I don't see it as offensive as long as it's not accompanied with stereotypical actions! They are beautiful objects and when worn with a spirit of respect they are perfectly acceptable.

    But these are beautiful too, of course. You were blessed with photogenic children!

  16. These photo's are just as lovely as the last, Jodi. Poet's pouty lips and inquisitive eyes never cease to melt my heart.

  18. I love these photos although it kind of unsettles me that it's up to 49/52! Didn't you just start doing this? Are we really that close to the end of the year? Time sure flies sometimes, doesn't it? Thanks for sharing.

    1. it absolutely freaks me out. It feels likes I've been doing this for about three months. Such a great record though - both C & P have grown so much this year; I'm so relieved I captured it in weeks x

    2. It's delightful. I think I might try and take weekly portraits of my two this coming year (although not for online publication - I'm far too paranoid for that!) :)

  19. As always, beautiful.
    It almost looks to cold for a swim x
