“A portrait of my daughter, once a week, every week, in 2015.”

Poet: she’s seemed so big of late and just like that I’m reminded; she fits in the laundry basket…she’s still little. 

Shot on a Canon 5D mkiii with a 50mm 1.4 lens – ISO125, f1.6, 1/640

I was taking washing off the line when I looked over and noticed that she had set up camp. As subtly as I could, I dashed inside to get the camera and managed to take this before she noticed me. Lucky.This week I was enamoured with this magical window scene / a little one catching snowflakes on her tongue / these b+w portraits (a theme for the entire year – inspiring).

    Oh she's so sweet – my girls love playing boats with our baskets, I'll be a little sad when they're too big to fit anymore!

  • Katrina@capturingmoments

    It looks like a great spot to lay around and gaze at the sky! My portraits are always better when they don't notice me snapping away.

    Beautiful capture. Love this photo!

  • Emma Cavill

    Sweet. They do seem so big sometimes, and then you catch a glimpse of them all tiny and vulnerable, and remember they are still so small. Lovely capture. And, are those oranges on the bush behind? Wow 🙂

  • Elizabeth

    Love this, the best pictures are always caught with them unaware. Another reason to keep the camera at the door (without a fiddly case).

  • Vicky Charles

    Gorgeous! Gosh i can't wait for summer over here! And thank you for mentioning my window photo of my little girl, its always a special compliment when others can see the beauty in your pictures as well. x

  • Appleshoe

    Beautiful. You are such a talented artist. My son is a blur in most of his photos. I take hundreds of them just trying to capture that one moment when he is sitting still or the blur actually works well. A nearly impossible feat 😉

  • Hannie Blaise

    Aw, she's beautiful! This photograph is just lovely.

  • Mammasaurus

    Jodi, I have been reading your blog for over a year now, one of those mainly silent readers who us bloggers never really know exist until they pop up a comment but I just wanted to say that this is my favourite 52 photo to date. It touches the 39 year old-about-to-turn 40 year old, mother who will now be having any more children. Just lovely.
