Inquiring Photographer: First Day of School

Inquiring Photographer:  How was the first day of school?

Laurie Wilson, 37, and 7-year-old son “The first day of school for my three children meant my freedom.   My youngest son was so happy for his first day in the first grade.  He ran into the classroom and started playing with the blocks. He didn’t even say goodbye to me.  He had so much fun that he cried when I picked him up from school.”

Lourdes Aviles, 33 and daughter Isabella, 6 years old “The first day of school was tiring, hectic and hot.  It’s hard waking her up in the morning. Once we got to the school, we had a hard time finding out what class she was in. She didn’t mind going back to school because she was happy to see her friends.”

Madiha Yusufzai, 32 and children Fatimah and Khizer, 4 and 6 years old “I work part-time as a cashier in Macy’s while my children are in school.  The first day is always busy trying to find out what class your child is in, and your children are so excited to see their friends.”
