Elma Family Kitty Photography Pip The 52 Project

41/52 {The 52 Project}

Linking up with Jodi with a portrait of each of my children once every week for 2015.

Space for the Butterflies - The 52 Project

Kitty: Playing around in the garden and you came and snuggled in and put your head in my lap as I was taking pictures of your brother. I looked down and you looked up at me with such a look of love and shared joy and time stopped for a moment.  And then the swing and the slide and the football called and you were off at a hundred miles a minute again.

Elma: I think I love this photo as much for the sentimental associations as for it being a technically brilliant portrait.  You’re sat on the steps of my old college, a spot I sat a thousand times, and your Grandpa a thousand before me.  I loved my time there and I am quite disproportionately fond of every inch of that stonework, so I’m glad you thought it was worthy of a photo, even if the photo was of your fingers.

Pip: I keep posting pictures of you in the swing don’t I.  I do have other pictures of you I promise but (a) swinging back and forth is when you are at your most still and (b) you just make the most hilarious expressions ranging from bafflement to jump up and down excitement.  Long may you be this happy my darling boy.

    Lovely, lovely captures Carie. Kitty’s photo is beautiful, and Elma’s is so precious. Pip looks so happy in his swing.

    Hope you are having a lovely weekend.

    Isn’t it lovely when they first start enjoying swings? A gorgeous set of photos this month Carie. I particularly love the natural shot on that stonework.

    Gorgeous photos again, and Pip in the swing is fine every time if he looks as happy as that!
