Angry. Tired. A little over sensitive perhaps. Definitely hurt and angry.
This photo of one of my students calms me, if only momentarily.
(I figured it was safe to post seeing as she is hardly recognisable)

This is absolutely great.

Stunningly beautiful.
I can understand why it calms you.
So sorry you were hurt and angry....hope it wasn't one of your students' parents.
It can be so hard when they are overly critical, and you're just doing your very best.

all your photos are great but this one has such power. very nice.

i worked at a private school before where we're not allowed to take photos of the children. sucks big time because there's just sooo much that you can capture but you're not allowed now that i do home day care, i make it a point to ask if i can take photos of their children. then i give them copies. i'm happy, they're happy =) you should share this photo to the parents i know for sure it's going to make them happy

I definitely share them with the families Rainee. I have two classes so all up I teach 50 children. I ask for permission to photograph each child at the start of the year and then I burn a cd for each family at the end of the school year which contains all the photos of their child, program activities, etc. I constantly use photos in my teaching to document learning, make observations of the children's development and outline the program. Obviously, I have to be super careful about what I share online. I felt this one was obscured enough to be ok.
How many kids do you care for??

just 5 (and that's including my own) because that's the legal ratio. the parents of the children in your classes are soooooo lucky to have you photograph their children.
