31/52




How to play catch with your son. Umm, Justin when I suggested catch, I meant with a ball, not with Jarvis. But of course our dare devil son loved it. The higher he went the move he laughed. Then Jarvis kept chasing Justin around the yard to do it again and again.


On a side note…. I have never picked a favourite of the week, for the simple reason, it feels as if I would be picking a favourite child. There are just so many amazing images: week after week I love looking at them. But I love this sense of community this 52 Portraits Series is bringing to the blogging world. 

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.

    And I feel the same about favourites...I did it for a few weeks but it just didn't feel right...I love all the photos and all for different reasons.

    1. Tamika is the craziest with Jarvis. But Justin gets the hight and the speed. Both scare me.

      I just could not pick favourites. Each week I would like this one, and this one and this one.... Hmm I like them all for different reasons. Exactly!

  2. I'm glad it's not just Eve being launched into the stratosphere! It is much easier to watch when it's not your own baby though.

    1. We all joke Jarvis is going to be a circus freak when he grows up, doing something crazy and dare devilish.

    1. Interestingly enough, Justin use to be oh so cautious with Jarvis. But our son has taught him how to play scary

    1. So do I. His hair is crazy, often has a mohawk shape. Though nothing on your little man's hair!
