9/52

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

Che: Sitting in front of the green screen preparing to reenact a Star Wars scene. The things that happen in my garage.....
Poet: I had a few captures to choose from but this, well, it says it all. She is sweet, she is mischievous. - clover bonnet c/o dover & madden

I unintentionally re-created 16/52 from last year - the same polka dot helmet, an older and cheekier grin. 


This week I was completely enamoured with little Oliver and his beautiful eyes / a sleeping baby called Everdeen - sigh / three priceless expressions, three joyous captures / from high above, the family bed (as soon as I saw this photo I went straight back to this week) / finally, Theo and his bed tunnel - precious.  

I received an email a few days ago from Rebecca and she suggested I share her idea. I think it would be lovely if, when you're posting your portraits for the week, you link to your favourite 52 post from another blog. That way there's a little more link love going around. What do you think?

  34. Hi Jodi,

  38. I love the idea of link love. Oh, but how to choose one? My favourite part of Sunday is visiting all of the other blogs and looking at their images. It is so good getting glimpses into lives all over the world.

  42. These photos are amazing Jodi! I'm not just saying that either! When I saw that dynamic photo of Che in my blogger feed I just had to click over to it. You are getting really good and I love that Poets wild hair can't be tamed even by a bonnet :)
    Ellen xx

    ReplyDelete
  43. Poet is utterly adorable (that bonnet is beautiful! clicking over to clover&madden now!) and this portrait of Che is stunning!
    I'm sure I'll say it every week, but these portraits are my favourite so far!

    Have a lovely week, Jodi.

  44. Thank you for featuring my blog this week! :) I'm loving this project! And loving all the new bloggers I'm meeting :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. Each week I think, "this is my favorite photo of Poet thus far," and then the next post trumps it. That's one very special little girl.

    Che looks so grown up here, despite the polka dot helmet. He always seems like such an aged spirit in his photos.

    My best,
    Jo Farmer

    1. When he was a baby I was approached by countless old people. They would walk straight up to us, nod at me, and then direct all their attention to Che. And they would always say the same thing: "You've been here before." It happened about 20 times and I still get goosebumps when I think of it.

      Poet - with her wide-eyes and excited expressions...she's brand new x

  46. So precious!
