48/52

“A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2012.”
Che: “Mum, I’ll be the sun and you are the earth. Move around me in circles but don’t get too close, you’ll burn!”
Poet: circa 1968? No, it was taken in 2012, promise.
Β 
For those of you joining the 52 project in 2013….I’ve commissioned illustrator Rebekka Seale to create a beautiful “52 – a portrait a week” button for you to place on your sidebar. It will be ready at the very end ofΒ December, just in time for 1/52.
Tell me, are you joining in next year? If so, are you excited?

      I am considering the linky thing…I just have to get past the fact that aesthetically, it's not all that pleasing (I'm so fussy). Would you like me to include a linky? x

    Che's idea of you being the Earth just about knocked me off my feet. He's full of imagination! And Poet definitely is channeling the 60s, no doubt ; )

    Also, I haven't thought about joining "52-a portrait a week". I believe I'm ready for the challenge.

    Seriously thinking about doing this. I do a 'little bits' photography sum up most weeks but I love this idea too.

    Also, I love the earth and sun thing, lovely πŸ™‚

    Beautiful as always! And what a thinker that little man of your is. I've been joining in for a while now and love it. I have adored capturing all the beautiful little nuances of my babies' personalities. And how lovely to think of a Rebekkah Seale button. Hope your Sunday is spectacular. Christmas tree shopping perhaps? x x

    oh yes please, i was putting links on my blog of all the other portrait-takers I'd been visiting, but it was getting a bit laborious πŸ˜‰ i just love popping in to visit everyone's portraits each week and being inspired. :)sarah

    Yes! I will be joining in. I cannot wait to begin. Though I am thinking of starting in December, both have birthdays in December, and I want to document them a week at a time until their next birthday, Tamika will turn 21 in 2013 and Jarvis 2. So first portraits of them will be taken this week.

    yes i will definitely be joining in. i have been doing the project 366 this year but as i am not so good at remembering to take a photo everyday maybe this would be better for me.

    I haven't got any children, but I have a husband who dances around like a little boy when he is happy. He will be my subject. As will a photo that really sums up the week's essence.

    Like Greer I have been holding off for a new year start. Looking forward to joining in then.

    I must say, Che looks very grown up in that first picture. And Poets curls are just the dearest things. πŸ™‚

    Lovely photographs, as always.
    Where has this year gone? I am still in disbelief that 2013 is less than a month away.

    I am looking forward to joining in next year.

    I'll be joining in. I've been taking photos almost everyday of my new bubba but for the 52 portraits I'll actually take the time to print them out & put them in an album. Also it might give me a chance to learn how to use my camera better. I paid alot for it & the picture quality doesn't reflect that. That might be my fault though!

    I am definitely joining in πŸ™‚ I'm struggling to get through my 366 at the moment – morning sickness is not a friend when it comes to these things. I'm thinking that one photo a week will be much easier to handle. I'm very much looking forward to it!

      Oh congratulations! I love the idea of 366….but the reality is just too stressful. A photo a week is very achievable x

    Yes I'll be joining in! I've really enjoyed the project this year, so thank you for the inspiration! I have one question though Jodi – have you decided how you will print your 2012 photo books, and who will print them? I'm currently researching companies and wondered if you had found a good quality option at a good price!? I recently went with snapfish for a little holiday book and wasn't impressed with the binding. Thank you so much. V πŸ™‚

    • Jodi

      No, I haven't decided yet. One of my projects for January is to collate all the images, find a reputable printing company and create the design. I'll keep you updated x

      Blurb has always been good when I've used them. You've inspired me to print up 2012 pics into a book of our own.

    I'll be joining in. Neither of my children have any photo albums, I think this is the perfect way for me to start.

    ps How lovely to have a special Rebekka Seale button. Looking forward to seeing what she creates.

    Yes. I will be. And yes, i am excited. It is such a wonderful project. I have loved doing a photo a day, but it is a very big commitment. A portrait a week next year will be far more managable.

    I have watched your 52 project unfold and loved it. I take photos of my kids almost daily. I think the best part of being involved in this is that it will help me edit so that I am left with a lovely record of 2013 – perhaps not of the best photo but of the best moment. So count me in.

    Hi Jodi

    I am a huge fan of your blog and the way you capture and inspire through your photography and words. I would love to join in the 52 project next year. Wish also that I could come to your photography and writing workshop next year. Alas too far from Blighty ( and boy, is it chilly over here at the mo!)

    Looking forward to the 52 button too. What a treat!

    En "El Conde Lucanor" hay dos cuentos. El brujo conoce lasinvocaciones satanicas "en idioma". Esta vez tuvo suerte. Joan Anderman in the Boston Globe summed up Gelb as "the mythical diablo 3 gold American cowboy spray-painted in strange, muted shades. Think art-school Neil Young, or Lou Reed wandering the buy diablo 3 gold Mojave Desert."Gelb's verve for doing what comes naturally does not always translate into commercial success: All of Giant Sand's releases until diablo gold the mid-1990s were put out on independent labels and many were marketed to fans directly through mail-order.
