(a portrait of my daughter, once a week, every week in 2014)

Julia: sitting in the prettiest field (we were hunting for cherry blossoms and found an awesome field instead).

So I have a bit of a variation from my usual one photo for Project 52 day ~ I have a few more photos to share! It was just SUCH a pretty day, and Miss J was wearing her new spring frock so I just had to take a bunch o' photos. I read something about photography recently: you have to love what you are photographing more than photography itself. That's certainly more than true when it comes to photographing my kiddo. Actually I just really love faces. I love portraits. Some people like to shoot weddings, weather, macro work, fashion, what have you ~ I love kids and the kid world and especially their faces.


Her dress, I love it, and wish it came in my size. It's very much a 'frock' ~ sweet, tiny cherry print, springy with just a sploosh of ruffle. I looooooove it and am so happy she occasionally enjoys wearing something that isn't leopard print.

And I am so so so happy that spring is here.

    1. I love me my extreme closeups!!! esp on kids with their perfect skin. :)

      I have to low-res everything to get stuff to load ok in Blogger, but in the original pic, you can see each and every little eyelashy :)

    1. thank you Christina! she kept yelling at me, 'are you focused??' she likes to tell me to pre-focus -- actually this time I was going for intentional blur so she was a little confused about that. she's the world's smallest art director :)

  4. These are beautiful. My fav is the second to last one. The angle, the black and white, the sky...all so perfect.

    I LOVE that you're doing this and sharing it with us.

    1. I used that word just this very morning! If people think I am just silly and make up words only on the blog, they would be very very wrong. I talk this way in real life :)
