Back to School Photography San Diego

Just a quick break from editing sweet newborns, cute kiddos and gorgeous bellies to bring to you my annual personal blog post featuring the most beautiful 8 and 10 year old kiddos ever.  That’s because they’re mine, lol!

It’s that time of year again for Back to School Portraits, and to celebrate my girls heading to school for the 2016-2017 school year, we headed on over to a spot we’ve been using for a few years now to sneak in some portraits in front of those cool school busses.  I dragged my really heavy vintage school desk out of the garage, where it basically is used as a laundry shelf for 364 days of the year and loaded it up into the car.  We were almost at the location when I realized that I forgot to grab some red apples as props, so I looked over and saw a doughnut shop… so the clear choice was obviously to replace red apples with very healthy (ahem) doughnuts to use as props…  Good choice, right?

Here are my girls!  Ava will be starting sixth grade this year, which means a whole new school!  She is SO excited to go to junior high school and to take some fun classes such as drama and Spanish!  This girl is going to do great!  However, this is the year that she doesn’t want me to walk her to her classroom and plant a big kiss and hug on her….sobs!  I mean, I get it, but I guess I’m not ready to cut the cord, lol.  She has given me very specific instructions as to where outside of the school we will hug and say our goodbyes, and the fashion that the hug will take place.  Seriously, sobs.

Emma started third grade last Monday and is doing great!  She is happy to have a couple of good friends in her class, likes her teacher, and is so excited to play on the ‘big’ playground now!  She’s settling into the swing of things, and quite opposite to her big sister, she wants me to bring her to classroom each morning!  Let’s hope this lasts a couple of more years at least!  I know this is a big year for her – multiplication, hello!  I know she will do great!

Well, I hope your cute kiddos had (or will have) a super awesome first day of school!  Happy school year, everyone!
