Preschool Project

I have one vague memory of being a child model. I wore a navy blue and red dress, and had to sit real still. It was for a magazine page about body parts (I think) eye, ear, nose, mouth kind of thing. I don't think the spread was ever published.

When I was trying to come up with the lesson for our preschool group, this month's theme of "Body" got me thinking of how special I felt having to hold my hand really still. So, we had a little photo shoot. The girls would only do it with each other, and the boys finally got a chance to sit in the no-boys-allowed-blue-ship so they weren't going to budge to where the light was softer. These girls are girly girls. Pink. Pink. Pink. A little Purple. So I used Nelly Nero Pink Fade to edit the photos. It was a fun project, and if I had 16 dollars times 4 I'd order a book for each of them... but I don't.

Cute, Brecken! What a good job you did :) The photos are wonderful. Doesn't Reuben look cute? - especially in the 'ear' shot :)

What a cute idea! I might have to keep that in mind for Molly's joy school, I think the kids would get a kick out that. What a neat little keepsake.

Very nice!
Now for an idea...Walgreens is having some specials this week. The Thursday deal is a free 8x10, one of the deals is 1/2 off poster sized print.
Also, hotprints.com you can make your own photobook (a magazine quality one, not shutterfly or blurb quality) and it's free with free shipping. Not sure why it's free. I've made 2 so far. Toss around, magazine quality, but fun for kids. :)
