JC - Originals Photography


Hello and welcome to my blog!

This is where I share sneak peeks with my clients and tidbits of my family through photography. I'm very blessed to be doing what I've always wanted to do... stay at home with my 3 beautiful children and photograph those around me; all with the support of my loving husband. In the meantime, sit back, relax and enjoy a little bit of us and my photography! Oh and I love comments... Let me know you're reading and what you like about it!

Just some snaps from Maddie's first day of First Grade and the new Elementary school.

Check out her hand placement. She's such the Diva!

We were kind of shocked when we entered the classroom... Everyone was quietly sitting at their new desks doing a coloring activity while they waited for their first day to begin.

Maddie got a little shy once we got into the classroom. Especially when I kissed her good-bye and called her Maddie-Moo in front of everyone!

She said her first day was great... She was a little concerned because her 2 closest friends are attending the other Elementary due to where they live, but I think she'll do just fine. She did run into some of her other friends and was excited to tell me about that. Oh and her Kindergarten teacher is at the new school too... In the same hall... So Maddie enjoyed seeing her again!

One last thing... Tiny vent... They haven't quite finished yet, so they have to eat in their classrooms, the East Wing isn't done, so PE, Music, and Art is somewhere else (empty classrooms), but the biggest thing is the pick-up! Oh my goodness... It was crazy! It took 45 minutes at least... The school is located on a 2-lane country road, so no turn lane, etc. Well, the policeman directing traffic didn't want to clog up the road, so if there wasn't room to pull into the school drive he made you keep driving past. So we literally drove past 3 times! Haidyn ended up needing to potty, so we went down the street to the gas station and came back (35 minutes after school was released) before we were able to actually drive into the line to pick her up. That ought to be first on their list... Turn-in lanes! I think tomorrow I'll be waiting until later to pick her up instead of driving back and forth...
