Okay, okay – I gotta stop!  I think I’d post one pic of every kid – I seriously have a “favorite” pic out of each set.  Goodness – beautiful light and great kids = a fantastic day!

My girl’s grade

December 10, 2008

What is it they say about the cobbler’s children?  Well – my kid was an awful picture-taker for school picture day!  LOL.  I got at least four good shots of each of the 22 kids I photographed, with the exception of MY kid.  Haaaaa.

But I got some lovely shots of the other kidlets…

(Haa – just noticed the food stain – this was directly after lunch.  I might need to go back and remove than, hey?!)

Tomorrow and the next day I’ll be hanging with the littler ones – I’m so looking forward to it!  What a wonderful bunch of kids….

School portraits

December 10, 2008

I had the opportunity to do school portraits for my daughter’s school and my, what fun!  I started with the Grade Two/Three and they just seemed so…..old!  I know they are only one and two years older than my girl, but what a difference.

Here are some of my favorite photographs:

Things went quite smoothly and much faster than I thought – even kids who I know well who usually ham it up on overtime when I have my camera out were sweet and genuine.   So much fun!!
