So, for years I have understood the reason that Tyler loves to shoot documentary style photography. It gives him a chance to really do what he does best – not just taking pictures of a wedding or other event that is happening, but through images, to make a person feel like what it must have been like to be there.
Now that we are parents I appreciate his gift so much more. Below what you are going to see is a few images from our son Alex’s Christmas program at his preschool. He, along with the 11 other 3 year olds in his class made their way through 3 songs. 3 very loooong songs! I loved every minute of this and cried (with laughter) as I saw these images that Tyler captured for me.
Here is Alex (and class) waiting pre-show for their bells. I love this casual pose of his. Knowing our son as only we do, this would not have been captured better by anyone else.
Singing and a little interpretive dance to boot. We got our monies worth on this show!
Anyone notice whose pants are open? Why oh why was it my child?
Gotta love kids, pay close attention and you notice that NONE of the kids are paying attention!
Alex is a tich excited and made sure Margot knew it!
Do not ask me what he was doing. Here every time the word “Jesus” came up on the song Alex would jump up and do the wave. Who knows….but it was too funny!
And one of my favorite images came after the show when Alex and his class went to their seats for the big kids to perform. Mimi (grandma) and Nana (great-grandma) were in attendance for Alex’s performance and this is their reaction to him seeing them.
Hope you enjoyed a piece of us…happy holidays!
