With only one week to go in this series, I realise how quickly my year has gone. Time has gone past at warp speed and both my babies have grown up so much.

I was attempting to do the 'serious' portrait of Tamika and Jarvis together as requested by my parents. We all do not do series portraits well. When I was looking through the files, I realised it was the not quiet right images that I loved the best. Plus it is hard to get an image of Jarvis... we have a runner.

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. Great challenge! I was only thinking this evening how I am never in any of our photos! Such a shame. Will be great to see your family pics. x Katrina

  2. I thought that last year. So this year with this project I made an effort to include myself in the family photos.

  3. HAHA, yes they hit toddler hood, and suddenly you're chasing them with a camera, or trying to sneak one in and randomly say their name so they look up at you. Are you doing this project for 2014 as well?

  4. I think I will continue it in 2014. Still so many images of my family I am yet to include
