The Gallery: Faces

My three favourite faces are so similar. And so beautiful they break my heart. Put them in a crowd and you would pick them out – know they fitted together. The delicate features, the blue eyes, the light brown hair… They belong together and I love them all so much.

My eldest, the most like me.  Such a beautiful boy. His face will be breaking girls’ (and probably some boys’ too) hearts before we know it. The high cheekbones, the pink cheeks, the slight build, the smattering of freckles. It is a face which really is too beautiful for a boy.

My younger son, the spitting image of his Daddy as a child. Pale as porcelain, so white he almost glows. The cheeky grin, the long eyelashes.

My daughter, a perfect mix of the two of them. With a face like her middle brother’s, but made more girly, and the colouring of her biggest brother. A delicate little face which lights up a room.

Two of them have glasses. I would never wish for a child to have glasses, but they have them and they are a part of them. Part of their faces, part of their character, part of what makes them stand out from the crowd. I love their glasses just as much as I love their eyes, their noses, their mouths, their cheeks.

They are the most beautiful faces in the world.

  2. A tough one for you this week, with your policy of unrecognisable photos but you’ve managed it – you’re children are unique and beautiful. Your eldest has stunning eyes! Beautiful post 🙂

    • It was a tough one, but I liked putting the pic together. I still wonder if I’ve cropped it enough, but all of the pics are at least two years old. Eldest really has got beautiful eyes.

  3. Everything is so bright! Their eyes looks like they have light inside that when you photograph them it shines. Love the concept! I esp love the bottom right photo! #TheGallery

  4. A lovely post, handled very well! I actually think your approach accentuates their features which might not be so noticeable in a full shot. Cute and charming at the same time!

    • Thanks very much, Kelly. Good point that you might not recognise their features as part of the whole. As my final line of defence against them being recognised, all of the photos are at least two years old!

  5. A really tough one. I have the same policy. It can be difficult to feature the children, without showing their faces enough to recognize. I like your interpretation.

    • Glad I’m not the only one with this policy! Sometimes I feel like I am. In many ways I would love to show pics of my children because they are beautiful and I take some good photos of them, but I know it’s not worth it if the blog ever gets discovered by their friends.
