A Portrait A Week: 48/52 {and the Freshly Picked Giveaway WINNER}

“A portrait of my child, once a week, every week, in 2013.” Finally, I’m caught up with this portrait-a-week project! I’d like to introduce you all to “cheese face” Mia! For awhile now, she’s been saying “cheese” whenever she sees or holds a camera (and sometimes my phone). She’s even said “cheese” a time or two when I ask her to while taking her picture. It’s only recently that she’s established a solid “cheese face” while taking pictures. This is {Read More}

A Portrait A Week: 47/52

“A portrait of my child, once a week, every week, in 2013.” I’m behind by a week, still. This double portrait captures the afternoon that my daughter woke up from her nap with THE worst case of bed head to date (for her, NOT in existence). What on Earth was going on in that crib of hers to create such a stunning head of hair?! I really do wish we would have spent a few more bucks on a video {Read More}

A Portrait A Week: 46/52

“A portrait of my child, once a week, every week, in 2013.” (rug: IKEA, bodysuit: CarlyMegan ) I’m behind by a week, yet again. Bleh. This week’s weekly portrait is dedicated to reading! As Mia grows, she has been becoming more interested in “reading” her books and looking at all of the colorful pictures rather than ripping them to shreds. Reading is an interest and skill that I highly respect and hold great significance in. When I was in Kindergarten, {Read More}

A Portrait A Week: 45/52

“A portrait of my child, once a week, every week, in 2013.” I’m behind on this portrait project, once again. Will I ever be that mom who’s always on top of things? A better question is does that person even exist? I try, guys. Really. Anyways, I decided to go triptych on ya with this 3 panel portrait this week. I think it best illustrates this girl’s love for her favorite show (Bubble Guppies, still) and her love for pushing {Read More}

A Portrait A Week: 44/52

“A portrait of my child, once a week, every week, in 2013.” (18 months old and photo taken with my phone) This kid loves her Daddy. Often times she’s rummaging through his belongings from his wallet (good girl) and mini-flashlights on the dresser, to his office supplies in his office, and his clothes in his closet. When I’m folding the laundry, this little bandit likes to steal a work shirt of his (they’re bright green) and will hold onto it {Read More}

A Portrait A Week: 43/52

“A portrait of my child, once a week, every week, in 2013.” (18 months old) Mia turned 18 months old on this day (yesterday). I’ll posting about it in a day or two. We visited a pumpkin patch at Lombardi Ranch in Santa Clarita, CA. Mia took a liking to the many gourds that filled a few empty tractor tires. She touched and felt and picked up and carried and observed as many as she could get her hands on. {Read More}
