Terry Fox 2013: Documenting Photos of My Daughter's School's Run

September 30, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

Last year, I had the awesome privilege of being on-hand to cover photos for my daughter's school's Terry Fox run, and this year, I got to do it again! My daughter's school is a very small, tight-knit community, and the nice thing about being involved with the school is that I really get to know the families and children at the school. Most of the kids in my daughter's class know that I'm the lady who comes in to take pictures, and they sure do love having their photos taken. That not only make my job waaaay easier, I also get the BEST poses from the kids!

The way that the school holds the event is that the younger kids (pre-school and J/K) sit on the sidelines and cheer the older kids (S/K up to grade 6), as they run around the block. The older kids have a longer route than the younger kids. Here's a photo of one of the classes heading making their way over to their official cheering area:

Last year, my daughter was part of the cheering section, but this year, she got to run. And man, was she ever excited! She totally finished the run without stopping, and I have to say that I was impressed by how quickly she and the other kids her age finished the run! I'm hoping that when she's old enough, she'll be able to join me on the CN Tower climb. (Aside: I'm doing it again at the end of October!)

The run took place at 10am, and even though this time in the summer wouldn't necessarily be ideal for outdoor photos (unless you're in open shade), this time of year is very forgiving, and offered us some lovely golden light.

After the run, the children who participated in the race were treated to drinks and refreshing pieces of watermelon and orange. They also got stickers to proudly wear, to indicate that they had completed the run. Here's a photo of my daughter with her her sticker (which she didn't want to put on her shirt, for some reason):

Overall it was an amazing event, and I'm so very happy to have been there to document it!

Peace, love, and pics.
