Can it really be one year since I joined the other fabulous photographers and embarked on a weekly theme to photograph? It really is remarkable to me that one year ago, I took a self-portrait with my 2-year old Jack in our master bath and just today I snapped the same photo. What a difference a year makes…I think I am better with my white balance; the days of onesies are gone; my hair is longer; I am better at removing clutter before taking a self-portrait in the bathroom ;). But despite those differences, I still love to snuggle with this little man; he is still home with me (no school yet); and above all, I remain richly blessed.

And now, for one final blog rotation, you can begin by visiting the fabulous, Chrissy, of My Lily Rose, a Cincinnati Family & Child Photographer and see the self-portrait she took. Finally, thanks to all of my fellow photographers for this amazing journey we have been on together for the last year.

    Great contrast of the two images…and yet so similar. Love it! I am still in awe of your consistent look, feel, and tones in every single one of your images!
