I may be just as nervous (or more so) than my son for his first day of school. He will be in grade one this year and that means school all day (or 3 recesses as he puts it) and that is a big change for all of us. For fear that I may miss a moment of the first day back (nerves, weather, etc) I decided we should capture the spirit of what this time really means while we can. Although I photograph kids for a living, photographing my own can be quite a challenge. I am not too proud to share that I exchanged this image for a lunch with my son at McDonalds. Fair trade? You bet!
