As most of you reading this though, my main profession is as a teacher! More specifically I am an Instructional Technology Coach which basically means that I work with teachers to help them plan innovative lessons and project experiences for their students! As most teachers will tell you, there is something really special about the back to school season. I LOVE it! I love the red apple decorations with the big yellow school buses! I love the pencils and the funky erasers; I love the bulletin board borders, stamps for homework and don’t even get me started on the stickers. I have thousands of stickers that I’ve been collecting for years with no hope of using all of them. And even though I don’t have my own personal students any more, I am a sucker for those flashy pencils to give away as behavior rewards. 🙂
So this got me thinking, I love the beginning of the school year and I wanted to do something FUN to celebrate! I also haven’t hosted anything in Baltimore yet and am ready to hit the offer something for families in this area! And so, for the first time ever I’m going to host BACK TO SCHOOL MINIS! PLUS if you are a teacher with a current teacher ID, I’m going to offer you a discount (because we all know how much us teachers shell out of our own money in the first weeks of school…. yikes!)
So many families take those cute first day of school images with their kiddos all ready to go and then may not get another good looking picture until school pictures, and that’s if those go well. If they are anything like my school photos… let’s just say they aren’t always flattering. So then I thought, maybe people would be interested in actually getting nice images of their kiddos at the back to school time without making their kiddos sit through a long photo session when they are in the midst of getting settled back into their routine.
I am SO EXCITED for this! I’m especially excited because this will be my first portrait event in Baltimore and I can’t wait to see who signs up! Each mini will be 20 minutes for families in (or will willing to travel to) Baltimore. Location is TBD and the minis will be hosted on Saturday, September 22nd with the rain day on that Sunday. If you are at all interested contact me here and make sure to say BACK TO SCHOOL MINIS in the notes section. I’ve got limited spots and time slots are first come, first serve so if you are interested let me know as soon as possible!
