School photos are one of those annual traditions that families have had a love-hate relationship with for generations. The photos are rarely exceptional, the expressions are often forced and pained, and the packages might even require payment before ever seeing the proofs. Negatives aside, it's a long-standing tradition and the pressure is there to buy the same thing every year.
We've taken the boring school photo day and flipped it around. We want photos to be fun, and school portraits shouldn't be an exception to that. Students are encouraged to laugh, dance, and make goofy faces. This allows them to relax and provide the natural expression that you know and love. The goofy face might not be the image you select, but the one right after it is likely the winner. Some students are quiet and reserved or naturally quite serious. Smiles are never forced, and these quiet moments provide beautiful images as well. For those who need some extra time for photos away from their classmates, arrangements can be made outside of school times.
Students aren't the only ones who benefit from a different experience; families love being able to order online from a private proofing gallery, and school staff love not having to collect order forms!
If you are involved with a small school in the Shuswap region, we would love to discuss our relaxed photo day options with you.
