7/52

"A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013."

Che: aka Astro Boy - I don't think he has ever loved "downtime" quite as much as he has this week. It's been absolutely essential.
Poet: I know she looks like me but goodness, I can definitely see it in her serious gaze.

This week my favourite portraits featured boys and brothers! I think this is Ronnie's best capture this year, her three boys waving at their Nan / little River is bathed in light (and I can't resist a good pair of overalls/dungarees) / Zila's boys are handsome and hilarious / Arlo and Munroe always make my heart sing...and I especially love the outtakes / "Mister G sat on the wall" - swoon!

Whilst it's not a conventional portrait as such, Sarah Humphreys has just released "Boy Wonder" - it's delightful and features my very own gorgeous boy.

Can't wait to see your captures for this week....

  3. She looks so much like you, and 'looks' so much like you as well! haha I'm so glad to see that Che likes comic books and downtime in general, he looks so much like an Astro Boy type character that he absolutely must be a Miyazaki boy!

  7. Che sounds like a mature little boy to take time out to read, such a wonderful sight I bet for you to see him enjoying reading. And those lips of Poet's in her serious look, just beautiful.xx

  12. That first photo makes me smile big time! I have a stash of Japanese manga from my childhood as well. Brings back such memories.
    Poet is so very beautiful, no matter what her expression.

  13. Ah, quiet home time. It's something we all love. So lovely that he perches somewhere with a favourite read. And your baby girl just a wee little you. Beautiful captures! Hope your week is a lovely one :) x

  14. Boys. I just LOVE the theme! And all the photos linked were fabulous.

    I really enjoyed the Boy Wonder clip but couldn't help feeling it needed more boy craziness - climbing and dirt.

    Here are my boys from this week - they are non-stop, crazy little bundles of energy. http://wp.me/s2olKc-752

  16. My fave of Poet so far...so pensive, you can't help but wonder whats on her mind.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Love both these photos. But the view from above is very clever and perfect. xx

    ReplyDelete
  18. Beautiful and beautiful.

    I love that photo of Che...there really is something about children's feet...they seem so much more important when you are children...when you are an adult they are just something that goes in shoes!

  21. What does Che have his feet up on? It looks like an old radio.
    Lovely pictures and beautiful children. I can imagine your 52 project photo book at the end of the year Jodi. Stunning.
    You should print one out for every year.

  24. Lovely, and thanks for featuring Ronnie's image. She's such an inspiration.
    As a total random aside, my girl (who was born in Japan) when through a phase at about 1 year where she looked exactly like astro boy. And i thought that was the greatest!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Gorgeous photos as always Jodi. We love Sarah's music too, that video is lovely. Have a great week x

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love Che's toes gently resting on the toy oven. I feel relaxed after looking at that shot...

  27. love her beads necklace! I really like to wear jewelry that a child can use :) so cute!

    ReplyDelete
  28. i love these. :) i'm enjoying seeing my son like this as well, at rest and reading. it's a good age. and i love your little girl's necklace--those beads!

  29. I like the way your portraits aren't always conventional ones Jodi, like the shot of Che engrossed in his Astro Boy comic. I'm going to try and take this approach on board over the coming weeks occasionally. Poet is such a sweetie, she always looks so pensive and calm. Saw Sarah's new clip and notice your darling boy in it!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Much approval at the comic book reading! Love that stillness and the calm that comes from reading.

  31. I was such a huge astro-boy fan growing up...good to see kids of today still love it. That serious gaze is adorable! happy weekend Jodi x

  46. I have just joined the series :) Seven weeks late, but better late than never, right?
    This was a great idea, and I like the sense of community it creates between mommas.
    I really enjoy looking through all the pictures. Your children are beautiful!!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I love your photos, but that's not new. What is new is the little tidbits of other beautiful mama's lives that the link up brings me to each week. I was just visited by Lisa from Big Little who was visiting each of her 'neighbours' on the link up, which I love!

    Time for me to go meet my 7/52 neighbours. :-)
