A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2015.

Chloe : getting creative with her new paints

Gregor : napping sweetly, after a very long and sleepless night.

Back to the weekly portrait! Hooray! I have tried doing this over the past couple years, but last year I sort of took a hiatus from blogging and never followed through, despite how much I really love having these portraits of my children. 

A couple weeks back Christian was putting together a collection of photos for a digital picture frame that he would give as a gift. He sorted through all my photos on my computer and random memory cards to find the portraits I had taken of Chloe (this proved to be quite a task - you have no idea how digitally disorganized I am!). While he sorted through, we found ourselves reminiscing and reflecting on these past three years: watching Chloe grow up, seeing our family grow from three to four, remembering little things about days, not too far into the past, that we might have forgotten for just a moment. It made me really happy to have that disorganized mess of digital photos.

So this year, I start again. I am going to use my "real camera", as we call it around here (I have a Nikon D3200), and shoot on manual mode (i am nowhere near being a professional, but going to try to learn!), and post one a week of each of my children. I am also going to put aside a couple dollars every week so that when I reach the end of the year I can make these portraits into a really nice coffee table book... for that coffee table I will have someday.

I link up with Jodi each week, and after this week I will also link to some of my favorite portraits from the previous week. If you are interested in participating you can check out Jodi's blog right here.
