I love to go in to Merrik’s school and capture the joy and playfulness of the kids there. Of course I am supposed to be supervising them too so sometimes what makes for a great shot is not the safest or most appropriate behavior on the playground so I need to control myself (and the kids for that matter). Not that I am not paying attention at all. It’s just that the little climber that loves to get up in the trees where she’s not supposed to be always makes for a fantastic lighting and action opportunity.
On Merrik’s Thanksgiving Feast day I stayed after the feast was over to help clean up and chat with other parents. I was lucky enough to get some images that otherwise would have been taboo during school along with some other great images of the kids playing like they were supposed to. Oh sweet rule breaking moments.
