52 Weeks of Portraits | Long Island Children's Photography

My 52 Week Project is a portrait project that documents the growth of my children. For each of their first years, I did a photo a day project of each of them... this is a simpler continuation of that. One portrait a week for the year - not your typical "sit and smile at the camera" portraits, but "environmental portraits" - photographs of my children, taken in their element, documenting this moment in their lives.

I try to write a few short words about each child under their portrait to record any details or milestones of the week.

This project was inspired by a gorgeous blog called You Are My Wild

At the end of each year, I make a memory book of the year's portraits.

Logan - Age 1, Week 51

I can't believe you are almost two. It seems like just yesterday that you were in my belly and referred to as "Spike"! Now you are starting Playgroup, and catching up to your sister in size. I love you, my sweet little love!

Lila - Age 4, Week 29

Favorite things at the moment: drawing, writing, making books, playing imagination games, helping Dad, and playing after school with Coco. You are almost at the end of the school year! Looking forward to a fun summer with you.
