("A portrait of my child, once a week, every week, in 2013.")
Stanley: Happy as long as he's on his belly playing with his toy cars.

I'm participating in this feature that started over at the lovely jodie's blog. And so it seems so are a few others, tigerlilyquinn and bleubird to name a few! It is a simple idea but one that doesn't put too much pressure on me. I couldn't handle doing a portrait a day as much as I'd love to, as it is I'm typically a day late with this one already. No matter, I will endeavour to continue to post on time every Sunday a portrait of my ever changing boy. I'm also collecting (for me at the minute) a picture a day of him to animate. I started on his birthday and hope to continue for the whole year so I can speed it up and see how much he changes in front of my eyes! Hopefully I'll be able to share bits and pieces of that project as I go along....

In the meantime here is my first portrait. My personal brief I have set is to capture a little more of his personality in each image. His quirks, his likes and dislikes, the things that make him who he is. I aim to take them outside when I can to make more of the environment I live in, make the most of the light available and make me less lazy and complacent with where I take the photos....


  1. He's such a gorgeous boy! You girls are all tempting me to take part in the project but I take so many photos of the girls already that I don't know how much sense it would make. We used Daily Capture on the iphone to take daily photos of Robin for a few months when she was a small baby and could animate them too. Problem is we had to centre her face in exactly the same place as the previous photos for it to work and a baby never stays still!

  2. Oh yay! So glad you are doing this project too! X

  3. I'm so excited about how many people are taking part in this lovely project! xx
