A (very rare!) self-portrait

I’m off on a workshop next week with one of my favourite child photographers in the world, the very talented Barb Uil of Jinky Art. There is a wonderful group of family photographers from around Europe attending, and we have some great shoots lined up….as you can probably guess, I am VERY excited! Although it’s the longest I’ve ever left the boys for so I am a bit nervous about how much I’ll miss them. 

To introduce ourselves to the rest of the group, we were asked to take self portrait of ourselves. I found this a real challenge as I’ve never done a self-portrait before and I wasn’t sure how to portray myself. I decided I should have my boys in it with me as they’re buy amoxil online with me every second I’m not working anyway! I won’t explain why I chose to portray myself like this, I think it’s pretty self-explanatory so I’ll let you work it out for yourself! So here is the finished result….

And yes I know my little boy looks really grumpy! But it took me about 10 minutes to bribe him to sit on the bench (can you see the chocolate in his hand?!) so I was just happy he finally sat there long enough for me to get the shot. 

I’m away until Thursday 17th May, so please bear with me if I don’t respond to your email with my usual speed. I’ll be back to work on Friday, hopefully full of lots of new ideas and inspiration!
