The 52 Project – a portrait series of my daughter, once a week in 2013
I can’t believe we are already at the end of this series. In some ways, it feels like it has just begun. I love that this project has encouraged me to not only get better at photography, but also to go out and adventure more with Rylee. In all honesty, it was hard for me to keep up with. I missed a handful of weeks, but as I look back on all the photos from this year, there are so many that I treasure. It’s crazy to see how much she has grown since my first photo of this series. I still called her my baby back then. And now, she is my girl. There’s nothing baby about her. Aside from her binky obsession I suppose. Parts of me are sad that she is growing up so quickly, gaining independence, and finally…some hair! ;) But I feel awful lucky to be her mom….to watch her grow and learn and become her own little person. Life has a way of just flying by….but looking back on on all these photos helps me to realize how full and wonderful it’s really been. I can’t wait to see what 2014 has in store for us.
