It’s been a long time since I have taken pictures of all the children together in a semi-staged photo. I think the last time was our family Christmas picture. Lots of reasons…I was so sick for months with this pregnancy, then so tired all the time, and of course there is the rain and cold here that makes being outside miserable. But I have really been wanting to get back in to taking pictures again. I have a new lens- 50mm- that I want to practice with. And I want memories of all these days.
So camera out, children all dressed, props in hand, we headed to the orchard. But it was a bad time of the day. Late afternoon, with the sun setting behind us. Lots of shadows from all the trees. And the grass was so long that the children complained that it hurt their feet. (Give them a few weeks of being barefoot this Spring, and they won’t even notice!) We ended up on the side of the barn. I love the boards, they make for a great backdrop any day. So here are a few pics from that afternoon.
A jet that one of the boys spotted!
