My son has finished his year of kindergarten and I’m so proud of how much he’s matured over the year. I’ve had an obsession with photographing all things related to him and school. He attended a classic “old school” school which inspired me to capture something that has a nostalgic feeling. I can remember taking his photo in front of the school on the first day. He was a innocent, yet confident kindergartner excited about his new environment.
The cafeteria was always fun to visit. The bus arrived to school early so every morning he would go to the cafeteria to eat his free breakfast.
The school bus! My little guy loved riding it for the half mile trip to school. I will shamelessly admit that I was obsessed with the bus. I took so many photos of the bus in the morning, yet never captured the perfect shot. Nonetheless, getting on the morning bus was a special time for both of us and I’m glad to have the memories.
My little guy has grown and matured so much over the school year and not so little. There were many days I missed him so much while he was gone for the long day. He is such a big boy for navigating his way at school and learning to read and write. I’m so proud of him!
Next year he will go to a different school and I’m very sad about leaving his school that’s so quaint and classic. It’s so difficult to say goodbye. Yet, he will have many great experiences at his new school and I’m sure there will new and different imagery that I will love capturing.
