Not Back to School Photos 2011

Aug 14, 2011

I am so happy to be "back to homeschool" and so are the girls. Today, we had my friend and fellow homeschool mom, Amy, come over for a photo shoot. I wanted photos of the girls homeschooling to use both as student photos and for our yearbook/scrapbooks we'll be making this year. Here is a sample of the images from Amy Duffy Photography.

First a few "in action" photos followed by actual head shots which will serve as photos on their Homeschool ID cards:

What special things do you do to preserve your homeschool memories? Do you have "school photos" taken too?

    Great pictures!  Last year I took one picture of Austin at his "desk" on the first day of school, but that was it.  I should take several!

    I was looking for the "like" button *roll eyes* silly me!
    I was going to say that the photos I saw looked like what you would see in a magazine! They look great!

  3. Actually, at the tip top of the article is a Facebook "like" button. And I'll pass on your complements to the photographer :-)

  4. Cute kids Michelle!  They look like very sweet girls.  Have a wonderful year!

    Great school photos!  Thanks for stopping by my blog, I'm following you on GFC!

  6. What do you use to create your Homeschool ID cards? Do you belong to a group that creates them?

  7. Thanks, Candace! You have a lovely year too!

  8. Thanks for the follow!!!!

  9. There are several places to order them. I've used the ones from which are very inexpensive and offer a "Free" option if you want to make them yourself (which I did not.)

    Also, there is and if you have an HSLDA membership, there is a discount.

    This one was previously unknown to me but I'm going to look into it:

    I like the thought of action photos for Not Back to School Week:)  Great idea! 

  11. Beautiful pictures.  I try to save our memories through photos throughout the year.  In addition to photos, both of my girls pick a journal at the beginning of the year to write in everyday.  I love reading them at the end of the year.
