Olivia Vitek, 6, a kindergarten student at Mountain View Elementary School, poses for a photo with her mother, Lora Vitek, during a May pampering session that kindergarten students held for their moms. It included juice and cookies, a manicure station, a massage station, a Mother’s Day craft and a song and gift for moms.
BEHIND THE PICTURE: A room of cute kids interacting with their moms is a target-rich environment for a photographer. It is also exhausting, I do not know how parents and teachers do it day after day. Early in my career I was told that for the best photos you need to go early and stay late. It was true in this case. We had another assignment to go to, but we decided to stick around for a couple extra minutes when they set up the photo booth.
