I know I posted a few of the images from this shoot yesterday, but I was looking at this image and thinking about how very much I love my children. My children are my heart, they encompass so much of who I am; watching them grow and learn has taught me so much about being an adult. About being a woman. I look at these two amazing beings, and still am amazed that they were both once in my tummy.
A mother's love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity, it dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path. Agatha Christie quote.
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.
