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


Julia: my wildflower amongst the wildflowers.

Ok, going by Jodi's schedule, I am way way off. I should be at Week 34. Um, ok next week I'll post 3 pix and consider myself caught up!

I had to beg, badger and cajole and pay $2 to get this photo. I really REALLY wanted a decent shot of her near our wildflower garden.
"Get closer to the wildflowers please." 
"No, there's a bee!" 
"The bee flew away. No, get CLOSER to the wildflowers. PLEASE." 
"I'm going to blow on a dandelion." 
"No I REALLY want you next to the wildflowers, PLEASE." 
"I'm going to look this way (the opposite way I wanted her to look), just take a picture ok? Now I'm going on the swing."
No, seriously can you please just get a little closer to the flowers. CLOSER. Can you just get in the flowers?
(then came the money conversation.)
"Ok nevermind, I have a headache now." 
"Ok, I'll do it!"

That pretty much sums up how our photos get created these days. Oh and she created that little headwrap thingy all on her own and wore it everywhere for several days.

  3. Lovely shot!!! Julia creates her own accessories? Wow your girl is so inventive! I hear you about the pictures. I don't think I have any decent photos of the kids. And my dad keep asking me why I don't send pictures >.<

  7. Great photo. I am so hoping to do this next year with my children! What a great idea! I just need a new lens for my camera. I loved my 50mm and it died. :(

    1. I was very inspired by seeing others do it, but I'm really not doing it as well as I outta be, I'm so off schedule! The people who do a 365 -- every day! That's commitment. oh the 50mm -- it's so great! sorry yours conked out. Right now I'm renting a 35mm that I really want to buy at some point and I loooooooooooooove it.
