Ahh...school photos. It invokes a funny nostalgia feeling in all of us. As a child of the 80's it brings back memories for me of laser backgrounds, ozone depleting hair spray, and of course fighting over comb colors. It's been awhile since I was in school, but with with Lily in daycare for most of her life she typically would get two sessions a year. Two very canned and 'why am I spending money on this' sessions. For most people it's hard to find time to set up photo sessions for their families so school photos were the nagging reminder that they weren't doing it and 'here's an easy way out'...even if they weren't really good. Lily's photos were never good, and knowing I had a *cough* super photogenic child made it all the worse.
That's why Tanya and I started our own Seattle Portrait Studio division, Sugar Cloud.
