First School Picture

Yes I toke a picture of them taking his picture.

We do not get many (exciting) firsts in Brayden's life. So I considered this to be a first worth documenting. Brayden's first school picture. I wanted a behind the scenes look at what they do for the kiddos in special ed.

Brayden's is in special education preschool at a public elementary school, so they do school pictures. I was a little skeptical...because I remember my school pictures and some can be pretty bad.

The photographer, special teachers, aids and therapists are out there helping the children. For the ones in wheelchairs, they drape their chairs with a big dark cloth. Then everyone tries to get the child to look some where close to the camera and a smile is a bonus! They are all so patient and really give the children an opportunity for a good picture.

Brayden did great. I came with him to school for pictures because it was not a day that he goes to school. I got to see how he is getting comfortable with his surroundings in school and he seems to have really taken a liking to one of the aids.

When it was his turn for the pictures, he actually smiled. They got a couple of him smiling so we will see what comes!

I can't wait to see the school photos. He look adorable with that big smile.

I would have screamed much worse things to that yelling lady. You were quite reserved. :)

He looks great with that big smile. So glad to hear that he is getting more comfortable at school. Sounds like a really great place.
