52/52




 "A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013."

Ella     At Nan & Pas.  Becoming a young woman, she's very composed (for the most part), a gentle soul.  Time is moving so fast.
Leila   Still my baby in many ways, but she is getting so tall and very elegant, not yet too big for morning cuddles in bed.  Christmas morning and the excitement of opening her stocking.

It has been challenging, at times, to get a weekly photo of the girls.  It shows how life changes as they grow and begin school.  When they are small you have nothing but time to focus on the smallest of their actions and generally capture them on film.  As they grow older it becomes harder to capture those moments and there can be a feeling that images are a little staged.

Most photos of Ella this year seem to have been of her reading, probably her absolute favourite pastime.  Leila is now an amazing reader, so expect more snapshots of her doing the same in 2014.

Thank you Jodi, for reminding me to take a moment to remember these small yet huge moments.  I love my family, my girls and am all too aware of how fast time is passing.  I will never enjoy a time in my life more than I am right now and these moments remind me of that.

These are so lovely. I love the shot of your eldest, I can sense her gentle composure in the composition of the photo. Such sweetness in both of these photos.

I too have found it hard at times to capture my ever growing group of boys, yet at the same time it has been good to stretch myself.

I hope that you all are well and that you had a most lovely Christmas. xxoo
