I have to admit that taking back to school pictures scares the you know what out of me. I see other photographers do it with ease and am at awe at what they produce. But me – I always feel like I’m scrambling, my kids are so not in the mood, 50 people I know are trying to say hi and how was your summer………and well the end result is never what I envision.
But there was a recent shake up on the photography forum I’m on, and in certain ways it freed me to be ok with not every picture being perfect. In addition, I realized I was missing out on special moments and memories because it was way more important to me to get a PERFECT photo than it was to capture life. Well that’s going to change.
So with that, I present to you Olivia’s first day of second grade. Did she have a good day??? You be the judge…..
Olivia Powell on the way home from second grade – “Mommy, that was the best day of the summer!”
You can’t ask for anything better.
