Motherhood, Art, Creative Play, and Finding Joy in Everyday Life



“A portrait of my child, once a week, every week, in 2013.”

Simon: Caught in the act of reading a library book.

Once again, I struggled with choosing just one photo  from all that I took this week to be the featured portrait. There were many wonderful moments that I captured. I am already getting more comfortable shooting in manual just five weeks into this portrait project. I am excited to think about how far I can go in a year.

As always, click the image below to see what everyone else in the 52 project is up to this week.

  1. Love those cheeks, Krista…Simon is a beautiful, beautiful boy. 🙂

  2. Lovely photo. I feel the same about the photography part – I completed an online course this week and have been amazed at the difference it’s made already. Looking forward to seeing more of your photos over the coming weeks. x

  3. What a great project! For my daughter’s first birthday I made a poster with a picture for each month. I am 4 years late but want to make one for my son too.

    Love this picture it really captures a moment in time. He looks like such a thoughtful little boy : )

  4. I really love this idea, and you know I’m a big Simon fan.
