It’s that time of year! This was my 8th annual school photo day at the fabulous Ashmont Nursery School, and I loved it, as always. We shot these photos back in February, but I’m just taking the time to blog them now – aren’t these kiddos just amazingly adorable?
And before I get into the cuteness, I should link over to the page of information about having me come do this at any Nursery School in the greater Boston area – don’t hesitate to reach out if you want me to come do this at your school. I usually do them in January-March, and would love to add more schools into my calendar. It’s free to the school to have me come do it, and parents only pay if they like the photos. Here’s all the information.
Oh, and bring on the siblings! That’s the best part :)
Ea the turtle needed to be documented this year. She’s a big part of the classroom!
My little red car and I will see you next year, ANS!!
I’m just noticing I forgot to blog the shoot I did for these guys last year. Well here I am, 6 years in, and it’s my last year shooting Ashmont Nursery School photos as a parent. I’ll be back next year to take pictures, but then I’ll just be crazy Jess who makes all the silly noises, not crazy Jess, a.k.a. Sadie’s (or Annie’s) mom. It’s been a great ride, ANS! I can’t really even begin to think how to thank Mary, Kerri and Edna for these years, so I think I’ll wait, I won’t do it now.
Instead, let’s check out a handful of photos from this year’s class of cutie patooties!
Can’t get enough? Click this link to see more nursery school photos, and scroll down down down to see if you can spot some of this year’s kiddos in past years…
So this is an old post – I might even back date it to January because I shot these guys on a cold day back then… but I’m finally taking the time to blog it because, come on – these expressions can’t be beat.
It’s the best when you can choose what you wear for school photo day. Ski goggles? Why not?
Little brothers welcome :)
There’s something so sweet about the angle of this one – I love it.
DIMPLES! (she has great ones, under those poking fingers)
Loads of fun, as always! More info about shooting Nursery School photos (yes, email me, I’m happy to do this at your child’s school next January or February) is available in past posts… from 2011 and 2010.
It’s that time of the year again – Jan/Feb at Boston Baby Photos means studio-style nursery school photos at my daughter’s preschool, and it was incredible and hilarious once again this year. Last year I put a post up explaining all the details in case any other schools were interested in having me do this sort of photography at their school, so if you’re interested and want to forward this along to friends, they can learn all the details from last year’s post here.
This time I’ll let the pictures do the talking…
Thanks again for a great day, guys!
When my older daughter started nursery school last year, I heard from her school that they were interested in trying something different for the school photos. They asked me to go for it, and last year I did, and it was fantastic. Well, last year I was 8 1/2 months pregnant when I was shooting school photo day, so fantastic wasn’t the word I would have used back then, but the photos were adorable, and the achy back was short-lived ;)
This year, in Annie’s 2nd year in her nursery school, I did it again, and this year was even better (no belly to contend with on my end!). The kids were hilarious and adorable, and I can’t wait to do it again next year. I loved it so much I wanted to offer my services to other nursery schools, if they’re interested in trying something different this year. Here are a few cuties from this year (thanks to their moms and dads for letting me share their photos here!).
I encourage parents to bring siblings in for photos, too. ‘Cause nothing beats a siblings shot:
I try to get all the kids to make crazy faces, too, so I can make a “crazy face” collage for the school. Well, this one’s not so much crazy as jazz-hands-y ;)
Even baby sisters sometimes show up, and show off a smirk:
What are you gonna do?
The style, as you can kind of tell, is just a little different from standard school photos. Of course I get the standard sitting there, smiling shot for grandma’s wall, don’t worry. I just get a few others, too. Here are my two, doing what they do all over my house (and for once I’m not yelling – let GO of your SISTER!)
Each parent gets an individual link to their child’s photos for online ordering for 2 weeks after the shoot. Expressions are natural, and I think, pretty incredible. But that’s thanks to the gorgeous kids, not me.
I bring in lights and a white backdrop, just so we get super simple backgrounds and really focus on the kids’ expressions. It’s also nice because we don’t have to worry about rescheduling for weather. I don’t charge the school at all – the parents just order their prints on a one-off basis from me a few weeks after the shoot. Nursery school print prices are half the price of my standard prints. For more information about having me take pictures at your nursery school, send me an email to jess (at) bostonbabyphotos.com and I can send you some more information.
I had an incredible day today as my daughter’s nursery school’s photographer – the kids were fantastic. And of course my favorite pictures are the crazy-faced ones. Had to do a little collage because they made me smile so much…
Thanks for a great day, guys! All the photos will be ready by the end of next week.
Thanks for the fun Mother’s Day photos, guys – all the photos will be ready by the end of the week!
So thanks again to all my Jimmy Fund Studio Day families. We raised over $800 for the Jimmy Fund, and got lots of great photos doing it!
This little guy has three older brothers, but mom brought him in for my Jimmy Fund Studio day all by himself. I love this shot with mom’s cool zebra shoes and her bright green shirt, not to mention the best rolls and squishy legs…
And now look at her. Isn’t she adorable?
