School Photos

Last Thursday, a school photographer came to the kids’ school to take individual photos and those with siblings, had their photos taken together. All kids Reception & above are required to wear a school uniform and with nursery it is encouraged. While we wait for the smaller size to arrive,  I dressed Maebh in one of Soren’s old sweatshirt specifically so they’d get the logos in the photo.

With the world of digital photography, the kids got their photo proofs that day!   Knowing how my kids photograph, knowing their “real smiles”, I don’t find any of these great enough to buyand you don’t see the logo!  In fact, you can only see the logo in a couple of the shots.  So I’m not going to buy any of these photos. Plus they are SOOO expensive – like £40 just for a single photo!

If the weather is nice this weekend, I might take the kids out for a Autum photo shoot with their sweatshirts. Not sure what the plans are yet with Nils’ work, but there are so many things I’d like to do around here.

This one is cute, but I would have liked to see the school logo. 

Later in the year, they have class photos, which I think are cute but again, way too expensive!

I am an American currently living in the Netherlands. I enjoy snapping photos and blogging along the way about our family’s journey as we moved from USA to the UK for a couple years then onto Ireland for three & half years and now in our next adventure in the Netherlands where the kids and are are learning Dutch. As you can probably tell by the name of the blog “Stars, Stripes & Mayonnaise” our family is half American & half Dutch and if you know one thing about the Dutch is that they LOVE their mayonnaise! I seen ’em do it man, they fuckin‘ drown ’em in it. When I started this blog way when it was to capturing memories of our family – essentially a journal of our family adventures, their love of mayonnaise, my love of photography, D.I.Y., crafting, sea glass hunting and exploring with our two amazing kids.
