3/52

“A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013.”
Che: sandy and sunkissed (you can see my silhouette and the ocean in his eyes)
Poet: she hides behind that golden curl

I’ll admit that I am thoroughly enjoying all of your portraits. My favourites from 2/52? – Kandice’s best friend/love and baby girl; nothing like a freshly bathed baby wrapped in a towel / Sarah’s little blonde babes, especially the magic of the aquarium shot / it’s so nice to see a Dad joining in….and how cute is little owl Naomi? / Clio photographed Mica in b+w – a timeless shot / I adore all of Dee’s captures but especially this underwater shot of kiss-blowing Limi.And I had to share with you…Jenny’s belly from 1/52 is now a baby – welcome precious Marlow!

Quite a few of you have mentioned that one of the reasons you are doing The 52 Project is to improve your photography. First step? Turn your camera off auto and start shooting on manual. Need some help? Well, if you’re in or around Sydney Tim Coulson and I are hosting The Creatives in May and July (one place left in May, a couple in July). I’ve heard really good things about Eyes Open for those of you who like learning online and if you’re after a cute and educational poster check out this manual photography cheat sheet.ย Also, if you’re interested in making your photos bigger on your blog I’ve written a step-by-step guide over here. If you have any questions I am more than happy to answer them in the comments section so ask away!

    Beautiful pictures and kind advice. I agree everyone needs to learn to turn auto off every now and then, I think it sparks this kind of hunger for "more" from a photograph… I love the grey theme to this week's photos and Poet's chubby hands clinging to that chair!

    Goodness, would you look at those beautiful blue eyes? Che is getting more grown up by the week – I swear! And little adventurer Poet, always climbing on things… reminds me of your "Poet Winter" story you told a while back. (PS- I would still buy that book if you wrote it!) x

    Thank you so much!! I've been talking about starting a blog for way too long – and nothing quite pushed me over the line like you have!! I'm so inspired now! Although my children are now in 'teenage' category – so changes over the 12 months won't be so obvious, but I can't wait to put it all together at the end of the year! Your images are just beautiful. Thank you for connecting so many likeminded people. Simone xx simonebell.blogspot.com.au

    Beautiful shots as always! I love Poet's wild hair. I have a wild blonde at my house too. I mean, a child with wild blonde hair. Or both. I am thinking of saving my pennies for a camera with a manual mode. My sister is a wonderful photographer so I tend to rely on her a lot. Maybe I should learn (and hope some of her talent make its way into my DNA too!)
