This week’s theme for fifty-two on Friday is emotion! From San Diego to across the United States … 19 other child and family photographers from The Bloom Forum and I have joined together to challenge each other on a theme every week. Each one of us will link to one other photographer’s unique vision. Some of my favorite themes … b&w, simple, shoes, love, fashion, alone, game, eyes, friendship and water.
The end of the school year and the beginning of summer is always filled with so much emotion. It’s a time that makes me sad … sad to be leaving an amazing group of children that have spent 175 days together growing and learning. So sad to say goodbye to families that have been such a big part of my life. But … it’s also a time of great joy! It means long lazy days and precious time to spend with Brooks, family and friends.
On one of our walks this week, we came across this graffiti near the field. On one side of the creek there is a happy face and on the other a sad face. They perfectly portray the emotion that I feel at this time of year. Brooks is in love with the lazy days of summer and couldn’t be happier running through the creek, digging in the dirt, swinging on the swings, and throwing sticks for a friend’s dog. I’m thankful for days like this.
Next up is the talented Sara Tegman … St Louis Child Photographer.
