5/52





The image for this week just had to include our newest family member, my great-niece Evie, who was born on Wednesday. The image quality is not the best as it was taken on my sister’s phone. However, who cares when I am holding a new human that was only five hours old. 


There are a few, Portrait a Week options out there. A lot involve taking a portrait of your children each week Jodi over at Che and Fidel has inspired me to pick up my camera and turn the focus inward. Since I already take 100s of photos of my children each week, so I thought I would twist the idea a little. What I never seem to get is group shots, images of the family together. Whether it is my two children, Tamika and Jarvis. Or me with the kids. Or shots of Justin and I. So I am going to challenge myself to get one image of "my family" per week.

    1. Families are so connected and disjointed. That is why I think it will be fun and challenging to photograph my family. I am still so upset by the flooding destroying my garden I have yet to go out and begin the clean up of the yard.
