Back to School Photo Shoot


Where did the Summer go?  Seriously.  We had such an eventful summer filled to the brim with activities, lessons, and family fun, interspersed with some great lazy and torturously crazy days.  Hopefully soon I will catch up on my posting of our fabulous summer {here's to dreaming!}.

On the boys' last day of summer I decided to take some "Back to School" photos.  We went out of our neighborhood a stone's throw to a dirt road and parked along the side of a shady bend.  To our right was the boys' fantasy come true, the remains of an old home just fit to climb on and explore.  They entitled it, 'the Secret Stairs'.  I bribed the boys with passage to these 'Secret Stairs' as soon as our photo shoot was complete.  They took the bait and really did a great job of cooperating.  I think they may have had a little fun too:)

I really am unworthy to have such an amazing camera {a Christmas present from my thoughtful husband}.  My goal this school year is to learn how to shoot on manual.  I just heard some of you cringe.  Yes I don't know how to use my camera.  I'm learning though!  little by little.  Despite my ignorance I feel like the photos turned out much to my delight!  Having beautiful children gives me such an advantage.  {Fiddling around with Aperature does too:)}


There are so many that I love.  Make way for a train of photos:

  1. What darling children you have! Fabulous job on the photo session too. Are you going to frame some of those?

  2. Thanks to both Jill! I tried to leave the house early morning to get the better lighting, but by the time we left it was close to mid morning, so I think we did pretty well with what we had. I need to be sooo much better about actually printing out photos and framing them. I definitely would like to frame some of them. I'm so horrible at narrowing down my favorites as you can see:) It may become a wall display:)

  3. Great Job. I am extremely jealous. How wonderful that you were able to take pictures of your boys that look like something out of a magazine spread. I love all of them too.

  4. Thanks Katrina! I am so anxious to learn how to be a better photographer. I was glad that I put my fear aside and just did this:)
