Back To School – Part 2

Today was the first day of pre-school for my two youngest daughters. The photos below are from their meet and greet with the teachers last week as well as the excitement of getting on the bus this morning.

These girls were way too relaxed, getting ready to go on their first day.20150914-092132-1886 20150914-103538-1888 20150914-115738-1892 20150914-115750-1893 20150914-115809-1895 20150914-120410-1900 20150914-122645-1904 20150914-120750-1901 20150914-123439-1911 20150914-123416-1909


Back to School – Part 1

Today was the first day of school for most kids in the Syracuse area, as it was for my two oldest daughters. I was fortunate enough to have had my backdrop and lighting already set up, so figured a quick couple shots before heading out to the school was in order. The requisite shots in front of the school were also done. It’s one of the few times they are very agreeable to having pictures done.

MAN, I love this lens! Its DX counterpart was pretty much my go-to lens, particularly for the car photography. So when it came time to go to a full-frame camera, this just had to be in my bag. Can’t wait to get out there and stretch it out. In the meantime, my 6-year-old helped me with this distorted view of her silliness.

Wintertime Fun in CNY

It’s not often we have nothing on the calendar. So the girls wanted to take advantage of a pristine, snow-covered back yard. Even our Tiny Liney got in on the action with some over-sized winter gear. They really had a blast before coming back in for some hot cocoa.

First Real Snowfall

Central New York got hit with our first real snowfall of the season. I think we had roughly 4 or 5 inches of fluffy white snow in our yard. My girls couldn’t wait to get out and play in it. Although it’s cold, slippery, and not fun to clear from the driveway and sidewalk, these smiles make it all worth it.
