I was afraid with the 6:15 AM bus and anti-camera tweens combo I wouldn't be able to accomplish pics this year, so I did what any other mom would have done... I fudged it! Yes, I printed these signs and made my children grab their backpacks for a few staged pics a whole day early. Oh, the horror.
The photographer in me had visions of something more like last year's back to school shoot with the period actor in a rustic schoolhouse setting with fun vintage props, but the mom in me was willing to settle with whatever my kids would do...
Backyard snaps it was. Nothing spectacular. Crappy midday light. A weathered fence as a backdrop. Wrinkled clothes. And less than enthusiastic subjects. Beggars can't be choosers. But I feel like I was victorious even with these subpar pics... Another first day of school bites the dust. And I have it documented. [Insert happy sigh here.]
For those who are new here, this is Wordless Wednesday, a place to share a photo and connect with an entire community of others. Being me, I couldn't keep it wordless, so Wordful or Not So Wordless posts are always welcome here at Project Alicia. You can grab my button in my sidebar if you'd like, but it's not required to participate.
Just grab a photo and link up below! And if you'd like to connect with other WW participants, click HERE or one of the thumbnails below. (These are just a few of my favs.)
