365, 29-35 Tune Up Pomp and Circumstance

This week Rebecca's diploma, cap and gown arrived. It's a little early since her graduation is not until May 20th, but the days are flying fast.







I remember well the day we started homeschooling kindergarten. I have easily learned as much as she has during these past thirteen years. She told me she was going to make me my own diploma to celebrate relearning all that stuff that may not have stuck the first time around.

I have really cherished the time we have spent together. The relationship that we share has been the neatest part of our homeschool experience. I'll blog about that more about that later as I just am not ready to deal with all those emotions right now.

I've had fun doing some "Senior Portrait Sessions" with her this year. Below are my best efforts to date. I love our new pancake lens (courtesy of Panasonic) and used it for all of these. I've had a hard time choosing a favorite!














We tried some "city shots" downtown, but it was cold and windy and the late afternoon sun ruined the lighting. We'll try again when we get a sunny, spring-like day. We also have an antique dress (from my great aunt Pansy) to use for some photos - I think those would look really cool in a sepia tone.

Ohhh--I have my own homeschool graduate this spring! I'd better order his diploma soon... Your portrait shots are lovely; I especially like the 4th, 6th, and last ones.

Blessings,
Christine

Thanks for sharing these.
I love them. Did you do a yearbook?
Would love to see that if you did.
I am doing a four-year yearbook and then the graduation in black and white in a smaller book.
