fifty two on friday ~ week 1 {self portrait}


I am so excited to tell you about a fifty two week project that I am taking part in this year.  I've joined a group of 19 other photographers in a weekly theme project. Every Friday, we will post a photo that depicts our own interpretation of that theme, and under the photo will be a link to the next photographer. If you continue linking through, you should see 20 new photos and end up back here. There is amazing talent in this group, so you will definitely want to check out everyone’s site!
This week’s assignment was a self portrait. These self portraits will allow you to see the photographers who are doing this project and put a face to a name.





I can't help but define my "self" as mommy right now and because no post would be complete without pictures of my favorite subjects... this is me. I am looking forward to sharing this project with you. 2011 is going to be a great year!
Please be sure to head on over Tara's site,  Carman & Pugh Photography to see her take on the project!

beautiful compositions and images. Children always have a way of making images a little bit more emotional.
