It’s almost that time of year for Baymonte’s Spring Photos and I just wanted to send out a little informational note to help you prepare for the day and preemptively answer any questions you may have. I’ll be using a set of real shutters that I painted in a lovely teal color for the K-2 classes and then will be using the staircase backdrop I’ve used the past two years for all the rest of the grades. Please see the image & backdrop samples below.
With regard to clothing: For the K-2 grades I would strongly suggest any colors that blend nicely with the teal backdrop, such as fuchsia, pink, red, grey, lavender, pale yellow, dark blue and peach. But, truly, anything will be fine other than teal itself which would prevent separation between your child and the backdrop. For the 3-8th grades (on the steps) there are no color recommendations other than avoiding white as it is a color that tends to wash out faces and is too similar in tone/lightness to the stairs and may prevent your child from really standing out against that backdrop. I always recommend against wearing anything with a logo/character/busy design on the front. Last year, I had several requests to Photoshop out logos etc…and it’s just much easier (and more effective) to avoid them in the first place! This year, I’m also giving parents the choice to “opt out” of having their child’s photo taken. If you are absolutely certain, for whatever reason, that you will not be ordering any professional spring school pictures of your child, just fill out the attached form and they won’t get photographed. This is just an option for those of you who unequivocally know you do not want these images. It should be noted that if you choose not to “opt out”, you are under no obligation to purchase your child(ren)’s images and there are no fees collected up front. Package order sheets and online gallery viewing informational sheets will all be sent home within two weeks of the photo shoot.
For all of you who enjoyed your child(ren)’s portraits from the past two year’s spring sessions, I very much look forward to providing you with more great images this year! Thank you for the opportunity to do this for you! It is always an absolute delight getting to interact with all the Baymonte students and capture their joyful little spirits with my camera!
I also took to heart last year’s many requests for Photography Print Packages and will thus be offering packages, in addition to a la carte pricing, to meet all your needs and budgets.
DATES: K-2nd on Tues. March 12th, 3rd-5th on Wed. March 13th, 6th-8th on Thurs. March 14th.
