Of course N didn’t want to play ball on his first day at school with photos.  I’ve seen so many gorgeous photos, but N’s ranged from bottom wiggling to pulling faces to jiving.

I then gave up and just snapped as he was playing outside with his stick before school.  I love this photo, with him oblivious to me with the camera. He looks like he’s conducting an out of shot orchestra.

  1. I love his photos, he’s going to laugh in a few years when he looks back at them 🙂 I just about managed to get one of z standing still!

  2. I think that often the best photographs and memories are captured by chance, without posing etc. This is lovely, a great picture to remember his personality and mannerisms at such a young age! X X

  3. My daughter can be the same but luckily she was happy to show of her new uniform. This pic is great though. It’s captured a memory! x

  4. The unstaged photo just shows his personality! 🙂 Love his blue and yellow uniform x

    • It’s unusual…the yellow is particularly horrific. Even after one wash (with colour detergent) on a low wash, the polo shirts are looking less vibrant. God knows what they’ll be like after a year!
