“A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2012.”
Che: Hiding from the camera, discovering the scariest of shadows
Poet: Her first cold –  snotty-nosed and red-cheeked yet still giggling with glee
 
I’m unsure whether I’m going to continue posting these portraits every week. Are you bored yet? Perhaps you’re a little tired of looking at photographs of my children. Please, do tell…

    These portraits are so sweet! I bet it's going to be neat to have them in an album or such when the year is finished to see how much they've grown.

    You surely must know the joy we get from seeing these two, Jodi. Poet, sick yet still divine. Che, so so comical.

    I'm not a parent, but I think these photos are precious. You don't go overboard by posting 50 million photos, just a simple one photo of each kid. It's part of your life and I love your photos.

    These portraits are what originally drew me to your blog. They've inspired my own portraiture so much. I hope you continue to post them, they're so lovely.

    They are beautiful shots, but perhaps it's better to post them because you want to, not becuse you have to?

      I do want to photograph them once a week, to document the year. I do want to post them…I'm just not sure people who visit here want to see them each and every week.
      But once I've started something I do feel the need to finish it…and posting here every Sunday is the discipline I need to see the project through.

    Lovely weekly photos…neat to see your kids personalities shining through too. I do like your other posts around the photos however, if it were just the photos and no other posting about what you had been doing, I would probably want more. Greedy no?

    Not bored at all. Your kids are gorgeous and such characters.
    And your blog is very inspiring.
    I am going through a de-cluttering phase at the moment with a 14 months old, and your home is such an inspiration. At the moment my greatest challenge is to be disciplined about baby toys and clothes. I was wondering what do you do with those toys that your kids get as presents but you don't really like them (big (or small) plastic ones that are not very nice to look at and hard to store).
    My other question: Are you also struggling drying the washed clothes in this weather?
    Keep the photos coming please, they are great. Agnes x

    Where did you get Che's wee wooden kitchen? Thanks. x

    I think the portraits are lovely and I would like for you to keep posting them. It's the simplicity of it that I think draws me, and so many others in, to this particular type of entry. You give us a beautiful photo, a line to ponder, and then you step away, allowing your audience to connect its own dots and create for themselves the story that they came wanting to hear. You guide the reader where you want them to be, then leaves them to make of it what they want, and I very much enjoy that.

    I always enjoy your posts because your opinions are expressed unapologetically yet politely and because you give a wonderful vignette of your life while keeping mystery and privacy, as it should be. You practice a restraint in your openness that I find refreshing in a time when too many share too much. But still so warm… So charasmatic in your tales. When I cleared my daily reads to reduce the clutter I bring into this head of mine, the thought to remove yours never crossed my mind. It's too much of a treat to visit this space. Aesthetically pleasing, a great knowledge of subjects that interest me, and an approachable attitude toward the topics you write about and the people who visit. It's a priviledge to be able to see a bit of your insight as a mother and a woman.

    These little portraits are always a nice little surprise to find when I visit your blog and I do hope you'll keep sharing them.

    No, keep going with them! I love the thought of having fifty-two consecutive pictures of your children to look at years from now, and it shows all the subtle differences in them .
