Today is Jason’s very first day of school. He was pretty excited about starting ‘big boy school,’ and even woke up before his Darth Vader alarm sounded. That. Never. Happens.
I knew this morning would be hectic and emotional, so I decided in advance that I wasn’t going to document every second in my usual photography-momma kind of way. But I definitely wanted to commemorate the event somehow, so this weekend I decided to start an annual tradition: back-to-school portraits. For our inaugural portrait, Jason and I went to his new school to play on the playground. I also snapped a few pics of him sitting in the empty parking lot, which ended up being my favorites. What can I say, photography momma loves stripes.
What about you, do you have any annual start of school traditions?
