Anne Shirley’s Chocolate Cake

The Anne of Green Gables series has always been a favorite of mine. When my besties and I decided to go on a picnic at the local arboretum, I knew that we must have a chocolate cake. In the beginning of Anne of Ingleside, Anne, now a mother of five children, is back in Avonlea where she was raised, and she and her “bosom friend” Diana go on a “do-you-remember” picnic to reminiscence old times.

This is no longer experimenting.

Well, ACTUALLY…it is, but I’ve seriously taken so many portraits now that I feel like I’ve got the hang of the portrait thing. I’ve photographed all of my cousins PLUS maternity pictures of my aunt! (And I get to do newborn pictures in January!) Now, I know that by now, you probably think that my blog is turning into a photography blog. Certainly three out of the six posts I published within a little more than two weeks ago have been photography, but I can’t help it! I present new ones to you today only for two reasons. One: I’ve had school, y’all, school (insert terrified face), two: I have less time (Because of SCHOOL) and therefore three: Less blog post configuring. Which means that I fall back on easy-to-make posts, like photography posts. It’s a crime, I tell you, a regular crime. I just need to sit down, write out some posts and get on with it! I shouldn’t hide behind school. Oh well, I guess you know what I’LL be working on now!

All that being rambled, I present to you some more portrait photography.
