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

Che: In his own beautiful, light-flared world. 
Poet: She stopped to smell the roses.

Daniel and I spent just over 24 hours away from the kids this week. We drove to the city without the need to negotiate or bribe, we went out to dinner at a lovely restaurant and enjoyed a meal that we didn't have to share, we skipped bathtime, bedtime stories and the inevitable q&a time that comes right before sleep. And we realised that regardless of the perks, we would have preferred to be home, in bed, with two little people snuggled between us. 

Twins Maggie and Elisabeth were born at 26 weeks gestation and after months in NICU they are now home in "the hut" - a cottage in Tasmania that overlooks an abundant garden and vast field. It warms my heart to finally see these strong, brave and beautiful girls' faces amidst all the other portraits / I only know Sunny and Scout from their mama's blog but I'd say these portraits capture their personalities perfectly / Outside - finally! Jane Mabel captures her children as the seasons shift / Dipping her toes in the spring water - little Penny is delightful / and rainbow children - sigh.
