“THE TEACHERS DESERVE THE AWARDS for all that they do, especially during these times,” says Stephanie Lundell, who received first place in the Activities & Events category of the Focus on Woodbury photo contest for her submission titled Red Rock Teach Parade.
The little boy in the photo is Lundell’s son Liam, who, at the time, was in the third grade at Red Rock Elementary; he made the sign for his teacher, Mrs. Storlie.
The photo, captured at her house with a Canon 5D mark IV and a 70-200mm lens, was taken right before the Red Rock Elementary school parade, where teachers and students could see each other.
“He really missed his teacher,” says Lundell. “[Distance learning] has been tough on all; the teachers brought such joy to the kids that day.”
“The best part about being a photographer is capturing memories for my clients,” says Lundell, a photographer of seven years at her business Captured by Steph.
