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

These two portraits were rather hurried, taken in the blurry early morning light on Friday, Xav’s 6th birthday.

Xavi - 7am, excitedly ripping open his presents. Whilst he was at school later that day, we were busy readying the meadow for his old-fashioned camping party on Saturday.

Louis - still full of sleep but happy to wake early to help his brother open his cards and presents. The light in this shot is terrible, but there is a lot of love in it, so it makes this week’s cut.

As ever, I’m joining in with Jodi and everyone else taking part in the weekly portrait series.
