The Future of School Photos

I know I'm supposed to be blogging about Health and Wellness, but I just got Lydia's school portraits back and they are sooooo adorable I had to share! (She is feeling much better by the way.)

At the beginning of the school year, Lydia's preschool did photos and they looked just like the ones they did when I was in grade school. Ugly background, sitting on a chair..."say cheese!" When I got them back, I bought the smallest package possible and threw them in a box. Boring with a fake smile.

When I found out that Suzanne Lemery was taking the end of the year photos and class photos I was ecstatic! What a genius idea to have a professional photographer come into the classroom and take photos in the classroom environment. I can't show the group class photo since I didn't get permission from the other parents, but it's darling and a wonderful memento for Lydia. Instead of just using a blank wall, she has all the kids casual together with their artwork/cubby holes in the background. Wouldn't you love to have a photo like that of your childhood classroom? (I ordered 3 copies!)

When I asked Suzanne if I could post these proofs she mentioned a great deal for local parents. "Any mom who reads your blog that schedules me a meeting with the preschool director/Headmaster -  and I end up photographing at that preschool/school - would get either 75% off of her order or a $25 credit (whichever is greater)." Nice! Thanks Suzanne! And thanks for the great photos. They are gorgeous. 


Didn't want Collin to feel left out, so I did my own shoot for him :) Click here to see

Beautiful photos! It is about time someone refreshed...tweeked....enhanced, the school picture process. It has long been too boring and un-creative!
