It's an annual tradition.
In our school system, a bi-annual tradition.
Our kiddo gets pictures taken in the fall & spring.
And every time, I'm thoroughly disappointed.
This year, I refused to spend one penny on those God-awful, horrible things passing for pictures.
They were out of focus.
And they somehow made my daughter look ugly.
And my daughter IS NOT ugly!
So, what's a photography-loving mama to do??
Take my own school pictures!!
Granted, the lighting isn't the best - indoors without a flash.
But they're a heck of a lot better than the school's options!!
Plus, it's only 1st grade... I'm sure she'll forgive me later on for my lack of lighting skills.
Since I already had the camera out & the background up, I grabbed Milo & made him put on some suspenders that he hated.
He immediately started taking them off.
I thought they were cute, but apparently Milo thought differently.
So, I think I'm going to just order some of these pictures & give them out instead of those awful generic school ones!
On to new (& better) traditions!!
