Hitting the Books

Hitting the Books

We're 'back to school' at i heart faces this week.
Perfect timing. (I think that was the plan...)

We're heading back to school at Mt. Hope Academy this week, also.
What a great time to update the school photos.

Unfortunately (for a boy, I guess), when you are homeschooled and your mom is a photographer, it is always picture day!

We decided to goof off a little and have fun with our photos this week.
More coming up (do you doubt it?), but I thought the one above would be
just the thing for a back to school photo entry.

This year I have a pre-schooler, a kindergartener, and a second-grader. Whew!
Don't they look studious? Grin.

ETA: 5th place. Wahoooooo!!

I can't decide what I like best. Great composition, lighting, editing and color, focus; it's perfect. Wait; I know what I like best... the subjects! Their expressions are absolutely, adorably hilarious! Great interpretation!

Awesome... I homeschool too and was like, how do I take a "school" photo this year. (this is my first homeschool year but our 3rd year of school). So, I couldn't do the traditional backpack/school bus pics. Anyway... Love it!
