A a mom, I always feel guilty about something…I should be making healthier foods for my kids, spending more time with my kids, reading with them more…the list goes on and on. Maybe it is the nature of parenthood. As a photographer mom the guilt is even worse- I NEVER take enough pictures of my kids, and when I do, I find myself having a short fuse and little patience. Terrible I know. So on Emory’s first day of preschool last week I vowed to make sure I brought her into my South Tampa studio and capture some REAL portraits of her, not just snapshots that I grab with my cell phone. I told myself, “Don’t expect too much…and don’t get upset if/WHEN she does not “perform” as I want her to.” She just looked so stinkin’ precious; her first day as a pre-schooler (at the same pre-school where her big brother “graduated”). These were a few of my precious baby girl, her first day, the most gorgeous little peanut I have ever seen…being wild, making silly faces, and just being 2. Gotta love that!
