"A portrait of my children, once a week every week in 2013"
Sophie: Our little one has always been very dramatic when it comes to facial expressions... her eyes alone give away so much. This 'oooh' mouth is a common way she gestures shock or surprise, usually accompanied by a sweet little 'uh oh' or 'nook!' (look)...
Grace: I had visions of a backyard photo shoot today with Grace, soaking up the glorious sunshine and pottering in the garden together... and then, she was suddenly struck down with a fever and our poor poppet has since spent the day on the couch sleeping while I've sponged her forehead and taken her temperature at regular intervals, willing it to drop and for her spritely self to return.
And so I accepted that this week, one of my portraits would be missing, until I found the photo above. Taken a few days ago by Grace herself when she asked to have a play with the point and shoot camera, she unintentionally managed a silhouette self portrait of her first session 'playing photographer'.
