The Portrait Project {Week 18}

Portraits of my children…because photos should been seen and shared.

My goal is to use these images for an ‘end of the year’ Blurb photo book for each of my children. It’s a gift for me as well as for them.

boy with food photo for blurb book

Here he is again, whining about the food that we give him and swatting it away. It seems these days he’ll only eat anything sweet like bananas, apples and pears. I have to sneak in some greens for him so I puree the sweet stuff with kale and mix in some quinoa. He can’t get away, muahahaha =)

This is what he looks like after dinner – messy, dirty and happy.

girl with rocks photo for blurb books

This face is telling me what to do and making sure I understand. I forgot exactly what she said here, but she usually wears this face when she’s giving me instructions.

‘Mommy, mommy! Listen to me! You have to do this and this…okay?’
‘Mommy, mommy! No, you don’t, okay?!’ (when I tell her what to do and she doesn’t agree)

Bossy little thing….just like her mom =)
