a portrait of my children, once a week, every week in 2013 via Che and Fidel
He : Has the most beautiful smile. In his happy place, a cave of cushions on the lounge with his favourite books. (that would be the Usborne See Under the Sea and the Gem and Crystal Bible)
She : Reading Little Golden books to herself, most days she has 'done' her own makeup, blue eyeshadow is the favourite.
I was undecided about whether to do this 52 week project. And then my boy posed for a photo and every time I glance at it, my heart sings. This child who would descend into hysteria at the sight of a camera for three long years, who does not find his happy place easily, is growing into himself, a calmer, more focused and kinder version. It is a welcome reminder of how far we have come.
