Well the colour one was but I prefer b&w. Wanted something a bit different other than the standard school portraits that grandparents have on the wall, RB likes this - thinks he looks cool - he was trying to look cool on some just came across as downright miserable. Anyway, kid portraits have to be one of the most difficult especially when your sister is making faces behind mums back and distracting sibling! Wont appeal to everyone I know but I think its OK, possibly ;-0

Immeadiately recognised this as being one of your offspring K, the lighting is stunning.....Perhaps you should set yourself up as a school photographer. If my kids had brought home any shots looking like this when they were kids, I may have been tempted to buy them!....RB's right, he does look rather cool as he quaintly puts it. Smile
