    The air was cool and a chill traveled up my bare legs as I took that step out the door. A pit was in my stomach, churning. I sauntered to the starting point, giving my GPS watch time to find a satellite.

Shooter's Comments:

Today was picture day at Waynedale Elementary School. Students at Waynedale usually have to wear their school uniforms, but today they were able to dress up for their photos. I saw a few kindergartners dressed up like princess in pink and white gowns.

It was fun watching other professional photographers coaching the kids for a nice portrait. The kids' reactions to having their portraits taken was so much fun that I decided to make a video, too.
