Wrapping up the school year and sending off the last photo orders this week. Reflecting on my first year photographing a preschool and how much joy it brought me to get to know all these amazing little people. School photos always were a hard thing for me to want to photograph until I could wrap my brain around how I could bring my style into them. I remember my first kiddo I put in the seat and the first cheesy smile that came out. You know…the 4 year old nose scrunched up and eyes half closed and teeth clenched together in the traditional “cheese” pose that most school photos develop. I always take it…and smile…as it’s pretty iconic. (BTW the first kiddo in the chair was my own 🙂 Then….I talk to them… Do you have any pets? Little brothers? And watch the magic unfold. Their face changes. Their eyes focus on me. Then I get them moving and giggling….then I get my real smile….What’s even better is that I have photographed many of them before with their families, so I know the real smile when it comes out. Then the smiles on their parent’s faces when they got their photos back was magical. Then I stayed for recess and photographed them having all kinds of kid fun 🙂 So thankful for this opportunity and grateful for this experience. Thank you for a perfect year I Know I Can Preschool! Love you all!
