{one:::fifty two}

I have decided this year to give project 52 another shot this year. I tried once before, with 52 weeks - my kids and me, but I failed that project. Last year, I tried 365 of my girls...and failed again. So, this year I'm not setting any limits... everything is fair game... my girls, my husband, self portraits or just a photo I'd like to share. I feel that without setting 'rules'... I can be successful... and I know I can handle one photo a week. :)

This is actually last week's shot. I will post 2/52 by Sunday. Up until this morning I was unsure where I wanted to post this series.


She's so close to her fifth birthday. I don't like the idea. I'm having a harder time with five than with one! She's the most beautiful little person.

She told me this morning on the way to school... "Mama, I don't want to ever grow up... but I keep growing overnight." To which I replied "Mama doesn't want you to grow up either!"

Do you think she's been hearing lots of comment on her latest growth spurt?


  1. She is a beautiful little girl. I can't believe that we will both have five year olds this year. Where did it go, Kari?! I totally agree that five is much harder to understand then one. I think you just led me to a blog entry of my own! Mind if I steal the 52 week project of 'whatever'.

    See, I told you... you're great at this! :) Can't wait to see the new picture each week.

    Love ya!

  2. awww Kari i really just teared up when i read this! i cry when i think about jayden getting odler and shes not even mine! i cant imagine my own when hey come!!! ahhh i love this,..cant wait for the next 51!!!

  3. O so sweet! She's beautiful! and Iknow what you mean...I will surely have a hard time too!


About Me

My photo
I am a photographer focused on infant, child, family, maternity, couples and senior photography. I shoot on location, at the location of your choice, in natural light.

I have loved taking pictures for as long as I can remember - anyone who knows me can tell you that. There is just something about it that makes me smile. After the birth of my first daugther, Delaney, my passion for photography ignited. 33 months later came her baby sister, Avery. I have had my camera in my hand every day since. There isn't a moment I want to miss... the tiny toes, the drool, the smiles, the simple things. My girls are my inspiration for everything. You will often find me in the background snapping those natural moments in life that I don't want to see people forget. Sometimes the best photographs are the ones that are unposed and candid. I love the feeling of capturing such sweet moments and will strive to bring your memories to life in a way that you love.
