Back to School

This week Elise started first grade. Carter starts pre-school next week after Labor Day. I heard a photographer in an interview say that the best way to get great back to school pictures is to take them before the first day of school. I thought this was a BRILLIANT idea! You don't have to worry about rushing in the morning to get one quick snapshot. So we went over to Elise's school and took pictures all over, in the front, the side and even on the playground. It was really fun and I feel like I got some really great shots capturing her excitement to start first grade. So far school has been good. Elise is waking up easier in the mornings than I thought and she loves that she gets to eat lunch at school. Best of all even though one of her really good friends is in another class, they can still eat lunch and have recess together everyday. Oh the joys of elementary school. Until next time, enjoy some pics!
