It has taken me all morning to pick three. Who would have thought it so hard to edit 26 images. But I kept picking different images for different reasons. Then I realised all of the ones that I was really drawn to, are the one that show the connections of love. Which is the reason I decided to show family members together in the first place. For this post, I have converted all of the images to Black & White, so it is all about the love.
So of course my favourite had to include my babies together.
Justin and I together.
Jarvis and I
Justin and Jarvis
And us a group.
Okay, okay, so I know that is five, but Jodi’s project has given me that chance to do and show something that is so special to my heart. My family.
Ps: sorry Tira you did not get included, but you are also very important to me and my family.
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.
