3/52

"A portrait of my daughter, once a week, every week, in 2014."

Poet: oh little one, you are growing up so fast.

My friend Luisa took this photo unbeknownst to me. Such a beautiful gift, to receive a moment captured, especially one I didn't observe. It was rather serendipitous that she took it this week as I'm currently without a camera (Daniel took the mkiii with him and I'm waiting on delivery of a 6D). 

I've started creating my 2012 and 2013 "The 52 Project" books with Artifact Uprising. In 2012 my photos were in a variety of folders (labelled "autumn" and "new folder" and "adventures" - yes, very random) which means finding the correct files has been both time-consuming and frustrating. In 2013 I created a "2013 - The 52 Project" folder and I saved each week's portraits as "Poet 3/52 - print" and "Poet 3/52 - web"...I highly recommend you create a system like this - it will save you lots of time in the long run.

          ...............................................................................................................

Your photos - so many beautiful captures! But it was the little girl in the glistening lake that sung to my Australian heart / Oh Anaru; little boy, golden sand, big, swirling summer sky / Lola swings high - so much ahead of her / Lucy and her red recorder - so, so sweet / and finally, the light, the lightness, the laughter - an unforgettable portrait

  8. This is stunning, probably my favorite portrait of Poet ever. I particularly love her expression, body language and the juxtaposition of her florals, stripes, and leather saltwaters with the green of the foliage and the peeling paint. I have a 6D and love it more than I thought possible. I am excited to see what you will do with it. I have a 50mm 1.4 and a 35mm 1.4 and I am tempted to try a zoom. As always, thank you for the inspiration!

  11. They really do grow up so quickly…too quickly. I have noticed my little man has lost his roundness…he is becoming more lean and angular…such a little boy.

  12. One of my favourite portraits of Poet for sure. You can really see the maturity in her now can't you. It's so wonderful and scary how they grow so fast

  15. She is the absolute image of her Mumma! What a beautiful portrait. I saved my portraits in web and print folders towards the end of last year and gosh I wish I'd started sooner. Hope your Sunday is a lovely one :) xx

  16. This took my breath away. Can I have hair like hers please? ;) I do the same, saving my photos in "52 Project" folders like you, keeps me very organised. Do you still shoot on your Lumix GF1 at all?

  24. What a stunning portrait! Truly beautiful, capturing her faery wild sweetness. I save all my 52 project photos in a separate folder too, it makes things much easier : ) And thankyou for the photo love for my capture of Anaru last week, that big swirling Summer sky is something else : )

  31. How do you keep all your photos safe? I have a hard drive but after having one fail I'm still to afraid to delete anything and as a result I have no memory on my laptop! What's your solution?xxxx

  32. What a beautiful portrait. Look at those gorgeous curls!
    I just discovered your link up, YAY! I've been sharing a weekly portrait of my two children since the new year (instead of daily photos which I've done the last two years) and I'm so excited to see other people's. x

  45. It's funny, when I visited the page I right away recognized a subtle difference in her photo this week. As is ALL of your photos of Poet, this is such a beautiful capture - what a nice treat for you to step away from the camera and see her expression towards another photographers lens... makes me look forward for the family photos we'll be next week! Thanks so much for the mention of Lucy as well! (and I just finished up my 2013 Artifact Uprising book -- I had organized my file names exactly as you're doing, made the process SO much easier!)
    Best, Megan

  50. Lovely, lovely lass! Once you get that Canon 6D, I'm curious how you compare it against the Mark iii. Thinking of upgrading and I'm weighing these two babies!

    ReplyDelete
  51. A beautiful photo but interestingly enough I think she looks at the camera differently in this shot wether it is because you are not taking it or something else. More confident, eyes deep into the lens, I love it!
