The project was inspired by a poem by Kahlil Gibran that features the line:
You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth
The idea is to take a photo of your children every week, building up a wonderful collection of photographs capturing their childhood. I’ve really enjoyed taking part in the last two years, and am so excited to carry on with it again this year.
Our first photos of the year were taken the day after Boxing day, when we were all in need of a bit of fresh sea air after the festivities. The photos make it look like it was a gorgeous day, and it was nice and sunny while we were out but my word it was cold down at the beach!
I love these photos though, and I’m pleased I’ve stuck with my tradition from previous years of taking quite simple, straight-on photos of Rhys and Nerys for the first week of the project. I know I’ll love comparing these pictures to the ones I’ll take in the last week of December.
Looking back over the photos from last year really made me smile so much, I really do love joining in with this project and capturing my children every week.
Now I’m just looking forward to seeing what adventures 2018 brings them, both big and small!
