Teresa O'Brien Photography bio picture
  • Hello + Welcome!

    I call hilly San Francisco home with my husband and wild child. I like wild, so I'd have it no other way. When I am not with my boys, I love to be out capturing life - people - in a fun and real way. It is work, but I get to laugh, play, cheer, and get excited … a lot.

    Thanks for stopping by to visit my journal! Please make sure to leave a comment because I'd love to hear from you. It definitely makes my day.

    Hope we connect some day soon!

Back to School

It was a busy summer filled with summer camps in all corners of the city followed by a final two week trip to NYC to visit friends and family.  With only a week lull time, we were heading to kindergarten.  The morning came and I had to drag him out of bed, with little one moaning, “why does school have to start so early?”  Once we got out of the house, he was full of excitement of the unknown, looking forward to being with loads of other kids.

I warned my little wild child that I’d be visually documenting our morning.  I’ve gotten lots of feedback from friends on how nice it was to see the larger story of such a special day.  It made me think how nice it would be to follow a family around the morning of to capture the interaction of parents and kids as they anticipate the day and hug goodbye.  Would you be interested in something like this?

He can hardly believe he is actually wearing a uniform.

Our new commute through China Town.  Its not too bad when all the stores are closed.  😉

Little one just noticed the large anxious crowd outside of school and I think he momentarily got a sinking feeling.

Reluctantly giving me a quick photo before we walk in.

Happy again as he just found one familiar face in the crowd.
