I’ve always liked to do things a little differently and I also have this tendency to think I can do anything. So, when I met with bride Courtney’s mom and the subject of school photos came up and how I thought I could do them better, I was presented with an interesting opportunity. Turns out, Courtney’s mom is the director at a local preschool and always had the traditional photos done by a school photographer. And while we both agreed those types of photos have their place and serve a purpose, we thought it would be fun to try something different and so we hatched a plan for school photos done without posing the kids in front of a cheesy backdrop and telling them to smile. That was last year, and the families liked the photos so much, they asked for me to come back again this year, which I gladly agreed to. It was fun to see some familiar faces from last year, as well as kids from families who have become portrait clients. The kids were all so great and really showed a lot of personality. So, without further ado, my version of the school photo!
