My designs are now available on THREADLESS! Yaaay!
UPDATE: So my son turned 1 on February 12th, 2016. I reached my goal and had an amazing year with him. I still want to continue taking his photos but it is taking too much time from my other work. So for now the plan is to continue monthly instead of weekly.
So here is the reason why I've been so silent for the past year. I had a son! He is almost 9 months now and takes up most of my time for now. I may not have the time to paint watercolors but I couldn't stand still either. This is how this series of photographs came to happen.
First it was just a fun thing to do for memories. My son was born on a Thursday. Until his birth I bought so many funny onesies but when you give birth to a child in the middle of a winter storm (biggest in years in Boston) you have no place to use them. So I started taking his picture every Thursday with a funny onesie with my iPhone to post on Instagram. Quickly this became my Thursday ritual. Unfortunately when I tried to get them printed I realized they were really muddy and low-res pictures. Oh no! So things started getting serious. I took out my Canon and started to take this a bit more seriously.
After a while I ran out of funny onesies to buy online. Since we moved back to Turkey, either the shipping was horrendously high, or they didn't even ship to Turkey. I started designing my own onesies, and the concepts...
We're currently on onesie #45. I hope to continue this until he is 1 year old :) We'll see...
