Part two of raising some money for my daughter’s preschool involved shooting Fall Mini-Sessions. With the help of another mom from the school, we created a super fun themed “pumpkin stand” for the kids and families to use during the shoot.
Ok. That was a total lie. Jess did all the work. I showed up with a pumpkin and a wagon. The rest was entirely her. I told her she was permanently hired as my set designer!
So two re-purposed pallets and a giant bowl of candy corn later, we were ready to roll! I spent two Sunday afternoons taking family photos for preschool and community area families. It was hard work, but wonderful on so many levels. I got to meet some amazing families, work on some photography and editing skills, and get to know some of the other preschool moms better. And we raised about $600 for the school.
In all, it was a great project that probably benefited me as an aspiring photographer more so than it did Wee Pals Preschool. But it was sort of exhausting. Almost a month later, I uploaded the final edits for the last “client.”
Bring on the wine. That’s fall themed, right?
