O & Lo

I had some success with the kids in trying to create our holiday card, but in the end I didn’t use any of these shots, they were too tired and not really into it. It was a good experiment with lighting though as I carted my new lightstands outside in the pitch dark!

First Day - New School

When we took this picture it was Oliver’s first day at the new school and Oliver had his game face on. For the first few weeks he was not particularly happy. Lots of new people to meet, homework, expectations were an awful lot to take in. Now as I write this in November, I can happily report Oliver is having a great time. He has two best friends, Max and Ozzie, has suffered his first crush with Ava and is very happy with his teacher Mrs Harris!

Being with family for the holidays is really what it’s all about. These moments are touchstones in our lives that we will look back on in years to come. Granny’s first year trick or treating was a blast.

Rustic Canyon Creek

There is a creek, a watershed right in front of our house that has long been a source of curiosity for the kids. This one day Oliver discovered a rope that some child had knotted up making an easy way down to explore the creek. This was the first day we made it down there.

UK Summer Holiday

This year was one of the best summer holidays we’ve had in the UK. We were settled in our own place just outside Flamstead, got to spend heaps of time with the cousins. Here are a few of my favorite shots.

Happy 6th Birthday Oliver

This was a great party! Once we got over the dog almost eating the birthday cake - it was all good! The reptile show was a huge hot with the kids and the adults alike and it was a good easy crowd. Nice to start to host things in the new house too -it’s a great place for entertaining! June was a good month, although you can feel all the kids starting to unravel in readiness for the summer vacation. Concentration starts to drift, attention spans get shorter. Ah - let the summer begin!

Lola’s Graduation

Even though Lola was leaving to go to another preschool and not officially graduating to kindergarten, the folks at Young Minds let her participate in the ceremony. What a day! She is sad to leave that wonderful school and will sorely miss the lovely teachers there. but rustic Canyon Nursery School beckons and a new chapter begins!
