First Day of School

Now that we’re all out of school, I thought, “Hey, let’s do a post about the first day of school!” I like to do the opposite of what’s expected just for the sake of being different.

Anyways, this is the Leazenby family and a few years back I shot this fun story following their two kids on their first day of school.  

I love these photos because there are some universal moments I think we all can identify with. I guarantee this will bring back some of the feels you had during your school years.  

I didn’t want to interrupt these images with commentary. So, after you scroll through them, I’d like to hear about any particular moments that connected with you. Leave a note in the comments.
