Back to the real world

School holidays are over, and the school routine has begun.  I am terrible at mornings and I am missing my sleep ins terribly.  We had such lovely holidays.  Here are some photos from our time.

While things are not quite as busy without all the kids at home, I have some very busy weekends ahead to look forward to, birthdays to plan, penny farthing races to watch and weddings to prepare for. I am looking forward to it.

Home Sick

My little girl has the flu this week so she is at home, resting.

Just to annoy her (not intentionally, but she hates posing for photos unless its the spinning ones)  I asked if I could take some pictures of her.

I wanted to try one of the techniques from Rachel Devine’s E-book Click, which was to practice side lighting, and a serious pose.

She wasn’t keen on the idea.

It wasn’t true side lighting as I also had a window behind my head that I couldn’t cover, so I will have to try a different window if I want to get that shadowed look on one half of her face.
