SO one of the amazing perks of being a photographer, is getting to capture my own kiddo’s milestones!!!! In addition to being a family portrait photographer, many of you may not know that I also capture preschool portraits! (Shameless plug here… I am ALWAYS looking for more schools to capture….. so If you are interested. let me know!!!) So, for now, I have my own little model in the house, and we actually captured these portraits (like many many others) in our kitchen!
So while we do use our little girl as a model often, these photos are the real deal. Fair warning…. this post will be a little more personal than most of my photography posts!
So….we opted to start a year early, and at 4 years old, began our homeschool journey this year with Creedence. Which means, our girl is now graduating Kindergarten!!!
Bring on the waterworks………..now.
We have had an amazing time this year learning just how WE homeschool best, and getting our own groove. She is doing INCREDIBLE, and making HUGE strides!!! She is SO SMART.. She even graduated TOP of her CLASS!!!! (a little homeschool humor…)
She has already chosen her career path, and is on the move to make her DREAM COME TRUE!!!! This future Disney Imagineer is very engineer minded, and she can problem solve like no other! How her little mind works really blows me away!
To say that Creedence is very independent, and self driven, would be a massive understatement! Two traits which (I pray) will serve her well through our homeschool journey. She has kept us on our toes all year, and blown us away with not only her intelligence, insight, and comprehension, but also her love, compassion, and kind-hearted nature.
And how on earth could we forget her HILARIOUS Personality?!?!
Watching her grow and learn has truly been one of the most amazing blessings in my life. Yes.. I am gushing, but I just can’t imagine life without my little sidekick. My best friend. My heart!!! When God made this one.. He definitely pulled out ALL of the Stops!!
And do we possibly have a mini photog in our future??? Maybe….. This shot here ^^^ Believe it or not, she actually posed the entire thing (including all of the props) herself!! I was pretty impressed, and it reminded to stop and listen. One of the most important things I have learned this year is that, as parents, we should always take the time to stop and really listen to our littles. I am always surprised with how insightful she is!!!
So as we get ready to close out our first year, we look back and see how far we have come, but more importantly, we look forward to how bright her future will be!!
Farewell Kindergarten!!!! We have loved EVERY SECOND of you, and we will always look back with fond memories of our first homeschool year together!!!
annnddd.. because this is my photography blog, OF COURSE I would LOVE to capture YOUR little one’s Preschool or Kindergarten Graduation Photos as well!!!! Contact me for more information on Preschool/Kindergarten Portraits….either personal or in-school!!
