A portrait a week
Images and memories allow us to revisit moments and exist in them a little longer. Everyday life and the treasure that is found in everyday moments have become so important to us. We spend most of our days behind our cameras capturing the lives of others. But as it goes, we find that except for our travels, we have captured so little of us over the years. So, this year we decided to take a portrait a week. A photo project more for us than anyone else, but follow along if you want to share in our lives.
We plan to update “52 Portraits” as often as possible, letting you into our world and our 2018. We can’t promise images won’t come in batches (when the editing monster has subsided) but we do promise there will be 52 images, and 52 memories on this page come 2019!
Welcome to the inner-workings of Page and Holmes. The adventures, our home life, our sunburnt faces, the various stages of Kris’ facial hair, our good and our bad.
