Picture This: Capturing Childhood

Smile! Turn a bit to the right. Smile! Sit up straight. Smile! One, two, three ... click! Schools throughout the region are busy this month scheduling picture days for their students. Bee photographer Joan Barnett Lee visited Sherwood Elementary School in Modesto last week while Burgad Imaging of Lodi was snapping shots of students. Burgad was scheduled to photograph the school's student body of about 500. Whew!

"Picture This" is a regular feature by Bee photographers.
