"A portrait of my youngest children, once a week, every week, in 2015."
Poet: dancing, always dancing (despite a heavy head and grouchy temperament).
Unfortunately I can't post Percy's portrait this week...I took some photos for one of my favourite children's clothing labels and as a result, Percy will be in their summer catalogue. As much as I would love to share his scrumptious face, I can't. I have however tucked the photo away in my 52 Project file to be printed at the end of the year.
In other news, we are officially half-way through the year! And whilst I have the excuse of a new baby to use when these posts are late (sometimes by a whole day) I must admit that it's also getting more difficult to photograph Poet. I find the perfect age to photograph children is from 18months - 3.5 years; they go about their day, often oblivious to the camera and to their own appearance. As they venture towards four their awareness generally expands and all of a sudden they are smiling cheesy grins for the camera. As a photographer you have to up your sleuth-like game and it can get difficult (especially if you have a babe in arms and you're not picking up the camera as regularly).
I'm also back to working on my photography series...more to come this week.
