2/52 : a portrait project



"A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013."

Aila: A week of swimming lessons. What a world of difference it made to her confidence. 
Elliot : A maniac in and around the water. No fear.

  1. I can see the twinkle in Elliot's eyes, the second one always seems to always be a bit more of a risk taker. xx

  3. Elliot sounds just like Sophie - a real water baby :) It's amazing how day after day spent in the pool seems to turn cautious ones into mermaids... Grace is the same. After a hesitant start to swimming lessons, having been in our neighbour's pool nearly every day since Christmas, she has become so much more confident!

  5. There are so many amazing water photos in the project this week. Clever parents keeping their little ones cool and content.
    It doesn't take long to build confidence in swimming- lessons are just so important.
    Have a lovely week. Xx
