16/52






I love watching Jarvis and Justin play together. It shows me the man that Justin has become and glimpses of the man Jarvis will be.

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.


Playing catch ups, This is last weeks.

  1. =) I love these pictures! Can you believe that there are fathers who rarely or never play with their kids?!

    1. Dad was always there for me, us. He is a cuddler and a protector. So I expect the same from Justin. Unfortunately his family is very distant emotionally, so we Tamika, Jarvis and I have had to teach Justin to show love and affection. The good thing is Justin is happy to follow our example, and I have always loved playing with my children.

  2. I love that first picture. I too love capturing more "family" photos. I have so many of the munchkins themselves!

    1. I have sooo many images of Jarvis, heaps of Tamika, but it is rare to get those family shots. This is why I am doing the twist on Jodi's 52 series. I also love how you are get images of your man, especially since he is camera shy.

  3. I love father son shots <333. I don't have any, because I'm not with my child's father, but it's still always adorable watching your kids interact with their dads.

    1. Depending on what your relationship is like with your ex you could still get some. I use to try to get images of Tamika with her father. Not for me, but for Teak. Now that she is older she can look back on them, and she thanks me for doing it. It was hard, Tamika's father married soon after we broke up and the wife wanted nothing to do with me, so it made it hard for Tamika and her Dad, but at least I have a small record of them together.
