The Kokeshi family - and so they were five

As my wife's Kokeshi doll collection has grown with two dolls the last two days, I thought it was time for a new family shot.

 

About the photo (for the photo nerds):

This was taken on our dining-table, with the dolls backlit by the window in the background. A silver reflector was beneath the camera to bounce some light into the dolls' faces. Shot with the 50mm wide open @ f/1.4, so the DOF was quite shallow.
