a portrait of my children once a week, every week, in 2013

It's a moment like this that I dreamed about when I imagined becoming a mother. There's all the work and worry and sleeplessness too, but this is the stuff that I'll remember when I'm old and gray.

*part of Jodi's 52 project. 

ps / so this picture is from my phone! i finally replaced my ancient iphone with a shiny new one and i'm pretty obsessed. the camera is even better than i'd hoped. up to this point i would never use a camera pic in this series because my goal is to print them all in the end, and i didn't think the quality was there. i was working on another post (for tomorrow) and wanted to include this picture, and i just decided it was too sweet not to bump into the 52 project. the quality actually looks pretty good, even at a large scale, and the phone is so light that i was able to get directly over them (which i failed at with my big slr). obviously there's not a ton of control, but i'm pretty excited to have the option of a decent snapshot at all times!

pps / i know posts have been limited. what can i say? i have lots and lots of content, and too little energy to sift through my thoughts and images. working on it.


  1. i adore those cheeks and you're making me want a new phone.

  2. Just a gorgeous picture! And many congrats on the new phone LOL

  3. These sweet moments have to be so sweet to soak in, too precious. And her little sweater? I'm loving it.

  4. I am so with you on the thoughts and ideas but limited ability to get to the computer to edit and publish. I blame chasing two small people all day and just starting season 1 of 5 seasons of sons of anarchy. TV is eating my blog brain! This photo is amazing! Much love. Ashley

  5. Could there be a sweeter picture of siblings? Probably not. Great quality for a phone, too!!
