you are my wild.


i’ve been following the ‘you are my wild’ project the past few weeks, and have felt so inspired by the beautiful portraits that i wanted to share in case you hadn’t come across it yet.  14 photographers are collaborating by sharing a portrait of their child each week documenting how they see their children. it’s absolutely beautiful. here are a few of my favorites…

Someone who inspires you.I know that you don’t have a lot of time but in case it’s interesting for you that would be very interesting for me! Thank you!

    This is such a lovely project!
    So heartwarming, thank you for showcasing it!

    You know how sometimes when it rains, it pours?
    It’s a funny coincidence that I’ve never looked into children photography projects, and just this week I’ve come across several.
    Another blogger I read referred to this one, with children all over the world being photographed with their favorite toys:

    I saw this a couple of weeks ago on Pinterest and I am hooked! It is one of my favorite reads each week the new post goes up! Makes me want to polish up on photography skills and capture amazing images of my own kiddo.

    Love it!

  22. I love that!
    The photograph with the dog and heart tights are my favorite.

  23. I love this project – and all the other blogs that have taken on. Such a fantastic way to capture your children’s growth! x

  24. rethink it

    Why do people photo document their children for the internet? We should be teaching our children to use the web with caution and responsibility. Not every internet child is going to grow up to appreciate that their topless, bath time, or potty training pics are online forever for the world to see. I’m sure this will be classified as trolling or that I have no life etc.

  25. Heart = melted. I’m so in love with every single one of these.

  26. This is such a wonderful project! So beautiful, thanks for sharing.

  27. ashley

    Beautiful photos – inspired to get out my new Canon 7D and try and capture some photos of my own.

  28. giulia

    There are a group of Aussie bloggers joining Jodi from Che & Fidel’s lead and taking a portrait of their children once a week each week all year… you can follow Jodi here:

    It has produced some very gorgeous photos.

  33. So cuuuute!!! The heart on the bum killed me. Love it.

    These are adorable. Especially the heart butt. <3

  36. Sarag

    I started following this the other week too, beautiful concept and gorgeous images. It’s enough to make me want to be a mum but i think i may wait a few years!

  37. Sally

    Wonderful! Definitely going to start following that one…

  38. vvv03

    Beautifully stylized photos. But, I gotta say it, a bunch of rich white kids in their Boden and DPAM outfits. That lifestyle does indeed photograph well.

  39. Laura

    Ooo I checked it out a few weeks ago and love it. I couldn’t leave the site. Every picture lead to the next then to the next, then to the next…
