365 Self-Portrait Project (week 49th)

One more week behind. It’s getting closer, and closer to the end of this project. Sometimes I can’t wait… sometimes I’m sad about it.


Last Friday:

On Saturday I had a newborn/family session. I got very lucky to be able to photograph such a beautiful family:

On Sunday I spent most of my day processing the newborn photos but first COFFEE,

Monday was park day.

At some point I and No.2 got tired and while this picture is not really the best, it tells the real story of a mother trying to relax. I bet many of you know the plot.

The sun is shining on my face and warms up my entire body. My Little Darling just dozed off while eating. I feel like my eye are getting heavier as well. It is nice, relaxing, comfortable. I wish, I was laying in a hammock right now, but in this circumstances I am happy that the playground is empty, just us. It is quite, peaceful. I closed my eyes…

– MOOOOM!!! MORE WATER, please!!!

Gosh… it felt so good for a few second… but not anymore.

The next day was a park day, too. The weather is too beautiful to sit at the house. We walked to the park and hereΒ is the entire walk captured.

Speaking of motherhood captured. Here is one more example:

This wasn’t the hardest hit I’ve received from her… but it got me by surprise, that’s for sure.


This picture is called: “I’m going to shoot myself” πŸ˜‰

On Wednesday I received a package from Poland and it had my old, old, old, analog camera. The one that I love so much.

At the same time, I know that it needs some repairs and general inspection, and that will costs some money. The conclusion is: I am happy and frustrated at the same time. I have my cameras but to be able to fully enjoy them I will have to wait, and that is KILLING ME even more than not having those cameras with me!

Today’s shot was a small practice for Saturday family photo session. Love the light on my Little Ones face!

If the weather stays as gorgeous as the last several days I am not planning to be shooting indoors on Saturday, that’s for sure!

So, I think that would be it for today.

Hope you guys are staying warm and happy!

  7. your newborn/family session shots are so very sweet~!!~great work~!
    and that last photo is lovely too.

    i did a 365 day project a few years ago and although it wasn’t self portraits, it was quite a commitment and i was very pleased at the end of the year to have managed a shot for nearly every single day as well as to be finished. i’ve thought about doing it again but i have so many other irons in the fire that i don’t think the timing is right.
    congrats to you for not only being nearly finished but also for doing such a good job. you have produced a year full of emotionally sweet and beautifuly done work.



    1. it is a big commitment, I agree. I tried 365 project before and it did work out for me. This time around I was more motivated, I guess.
      Thank you for such kind words!


  8. Great series of photos as always!


  9. I always love your selfies but wow- that last one is just so beautiful!!!!


    1. the last one came out pretty nice, I agree πŸ™‚ thank you!


  10. Lovely series! Happy Holiday Season. πŸ™‚


  11. i’ve been scrolling through several posts and love your work. i love how candid your self portraits are, and none (NONE) of them are ‘ordinary’. πŸ™‚ especially when they capture a moment in your life… like the one in the car and your daughter is seen over your shoulder. tells a great story. perfect.

    thanks for linking at 1440… hope you will continue on–your photos are always so different and add so much to our little party. πŸ™‚

    also, happy holidays to you, too!


  12. you have produced a lot of gret photogrphy during this year. You can still do it but not that much. πŸ™‚


Don’t be shy and let me know what’s hiding in your head!
