It’s almost that time of year for Spring Photos! 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 that I used last year for the older grades for all the rest of the grades.
With regard to clothing: For the K-2 grades I would suggest any colors that blend nicely with the teal backdrop, such as fuschia, pink, red, grey, lavender, pale yellow, dark blue and peach. But, truly, anything will be fine. 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 easier 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, fill out an “opt out” form in the office. 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 to have your child(ren) photographed, you are under no obligation to purchase 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 last 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 was an absolute delight getting to meet 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 20th, 3rd-5th on Wedn. March 21st, 6th-8th on Thurs. March 22nd.
