6/52 | portrait project

Week 6 of the 52 portrait project created by Jodi at Practising Simplicity: The idea is simple: a portrait of each child, once a week, every week, in 2014. Three posts in a row here are portrait posts. :( At least I'm keeping up with one of my projects this year! This week, the eyes got me.

He gave up kickboxing lessons about a year ago. Lately he's taken it up again but prefers to work out on his own or with his dad. Today he did ground & pound against pillows on my bed.

I can't decide about this photo. I was focused on her hands because it is all about 'making' with her.  Then she looked right into my camera.  It happens so rarely, I clicked the shutter and then tried to quickly change my focus. Of course by then she was back to her work. There's still something about the photo that gets me. The blur of her left eye contrasted with the steadiness of her hands. She is always so busy that it just feels right.
