A Portrait 05/13

A couple of months ago I started this little project: a portrait of my child, once a month, each month through to 2014.IMG_5779Yesterday, what started out as a bike shoot (I’m selling my bike on craigslist) quickly turned into a portrait shoot, since, as I should have guessed, asking a three-year-old to stay out of the picture is so not going to happen.

See that fat little cheek? That’s half chocolate Easter egg (we still have some of them kicking around) and half because she walked into her bedroom door yesterday. *Sigh. And see those rain boots? It’s not raining here at the moment. But I’m starting to learn that arguing with a three-year-old over what to wear is just not worth the energy most days.

You can see other portrait posts HERE and HERE

P.S. Here’s two bikes that I love, HERE and HERE

P.P.S. My husband would need to be in BIG trouble before he’d ever agree to roll on one of THESE. But it would make me reeeeally happy!

  1. You catch beautiful and fun moments with Julia. You’re a wonderful photographer, Connie.
    You obviously caught the bug from your mom.
