A portrait of my child once a week, every week for 2015

It’s bliss as Rafael finally goes to sleep after some hard nights teething.

A portrait of my child, once a week, every week for 2015

Rafael spent lots of time with his grandparents this weekend.  I love this snap his poppa took, he looks like a little bird.  Poppa got a new camera for his birthday so happily got down to business taking some great photos.

Rafael rolls around on my bed giggling to himself.  I love how content and happy with life he is.  It continues to blow my mind that he is exclusively breast fed and grows so strong and healthy every day.  We are heading into ‘real food’ territory and I look forward to exploring this and applying my nutrition passion to his growing needs

So I’m getting back on the photography horse.  It has been years.  I can’t even remember what aperture, ISO and shutter speed mean!  I’ve tried the step by step guide…and today I had a little play.  I must confess to ‘needing’ to take the photo as my battery life is low and I have left my battery charger in New Zealand!

So I had a play, its not perfect, but I think it captures Rafael and his cheekiness today                    DSC_0658

The 52 Project

Inspired by Practising Simplicity I’m going to participate in The 52 Project, taking a portrait a week of my young son, Rafael.

This is 1/52
Rafael sleeps anywhere, except on me! I captured him nestled in my friends bed while we did a photo shoot for me.
I took this on my iphone, and I’m keen to get using my SLR properly to take future photos
