Ahh book week. Each year so far I have vowed to be prepared and organized well in advance... and each year so far I have managed to leave it to the last minute and hash together something vague in the days before the big parade.
Alas this year was no different... after last year's effort, I had big plans to go all out. I actually wrote the date down in my diary and was determined that I would not be slack this year. I asked the kids weeks ago what they would like to dress as. Both were no real help. Miss 7 had a vague idea of going as Billy B Brown... Master 5 just shrugged and left it up to me. So I put it to the back of my mind and then promptly forgot.
With a week to go, I asked them again - Miss 7 proudly announced that she had decided to go as Scooby-Doo (we dont have anything vaguely resembling a Scooby-Doo outfit so that was never going to happen) - and again Master 5 just shrugged.
In the end, with one day to go, we raided the dress up box and chose two items that we already had. Miss 7 - a panda - from one of her Barbie books. Master 5 - a crocodile - from... ummm... hmm lets see if we can google a book that has a crocodile in it!
Nope we wont be winning any costume awards this year! (Mr 5 was not very happy about having his photo taken!!)
Todays blog features my Mother's Day mini sessions at Tamborine. Photos make lovely gifts for mums and grandmothers and makes a great excuse to get the whole family together, even the grown up kids! All sessions held at Tamborine have the option to make use of my purpose built studio as well as our 5 rural acres, giving two very different looks within the one portrait session, at no extra charge!
Here's some of the favourites from these mini sessions.
