"A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2014." 

Poppy: you are a mermaid. a surfer. a beach bum. in a past life i have no doubt you lived in the ocean. as soon as your toes touch the sand a smile spreads across your lips and you soak it all in. 

Piper: somewhere in the last few weeks you have changed into a girl, not a little girl, a real girl, with strong opinions and a better ability to express them. you sit and 'read' and tell us your plans and stories in great detail.

  4. such beautiful photos!
    thanks for stopping by the other day ;)
    happy new year!

  5. Oh wow, Poppy!! Amazing!! The blue in her portrait is spectacular. And I am looking out to a very dark rainy Scottish scene. It's making me want to relocate, that blue! And Piper, that sofa looks like the best spot for a story or 10. Looks every so cosy. Happy new year to you all.x

  6. Awesome little surfer girl! And such a pensive little reader. Love these both.

  7. Your little surfer girl is hilarious! I just looked at her and laughed - such a wonderful photo! and I love the reflection and peaceful colours of Piper's photo.

  8. Well that photosl is a classic isn't it. Found your blog via my yellow heart. Lovely.

  9. Wow! Both of these portraits are phenomenal. Also, seeing that 1/52 title reminded me that I want to do this (or is that too much commitment?)

    1. Do it! I once tried to do 365. That was way too much commitment. This is very doable and easy to catch up with if you forget a week...xxx

  10. I love your blog
