It was Harrison’s last day today at his lovely nursery, so I thought I would share some of the photos I took of the children there recently.
If you’re familiar with my work, you’ll know that I am passionate about capturing children naturally, doing what they love doing. I would never get them to sit on a stool in front of a white background and say cheese; that’s just not my thing. So when I photographed the children at nursery I let them just be. I photographed them either as they played, or chatted to me; it was great fun! Here are some of the lovely children Harrison has spent the last 18 months with.
Today is a monumental day for many mums whose children are leaving their nurseries & schools. Reading through my Twitter & Facebook feed this morning it seems most people have mixed emotions about it. Many children are leaving their junior schools, or starting reception for the first time in September. I read this blog post this morning from a mum who has 5 children and in September her youngest starts reception, so it will be the first time in 13 years that she doesn’t have a pre-schooler to care for!
Although I’m sad that Harrison is leaving his great nursery, I’m really excited about him starting pre-school in September and also Sam will be starting at the nursery next September so I’ll get to see all of the lovely teachers again!
Because Harrison isn’t in any of the photos above (I decided to shoot there the days he wasn’t in nursery!) here are a few snaps of him I took at sports day yesterday. How cool does he look as a cowboy?!
