Photographing my own family was one of my personal projects of 2017. Included in that project were monthly portraits of my three kids, Matilda, Coralie, and Eddie. I was inspired by Sarah Cornish, a photographer out of Colorado, whose amazing portraits of her six (almost seven) children are just gorgeous. I expected that photographing them throughout the year would allow me to look back and see how they’ve grown, and it did. That was inevitable. But what I didn’t quite expect was how much looking at those photographs of each individual child in succession would define their personalities and exactly who they are in 2017.
