It’s time for Grad Bookings

Tags: ,


Are you looking for a bit more than the traditional cap-and-gown photo to capture your child’s graduation?

This time of year we are getting inquiries for grad sessions, so here is a bit about why they are so awesome. 

Having your child photographed at graduation is often the last milestone before they get married. We think these sessions are incredibly important to highlight this exciting time in their lives, and then you both have great images to cherish forever. We often hear from our grads how much fun they had at their session, like it was an evening spent with a good friend. Grad sessions allow your child to express their personality and individual style with their choice of location and outfits.

Ideally we photograph grad sessions on an evening when we get beautiful soft light. If your daughter has a hair and makeup trial, you can also plan a session on the same day?

Of course before the session, we will plan well beforehand, talk about clothing option, location, then we head out and play! And yes, the family can join for a photo at the end as well.

But don’t just take our word for it on how awesome they are! Here are some kind words from our clients who had their grads photographed:

“Oh Karen, this is beautiful….. Is this really my little 5 lb bundle who was just a little girl not so long ago?! thank you for sharing” 
“Karen you are amazing, it was an awesome time, so glad I was able to be there and tag along, I can’t wait to see the rest as I am sure that they are stunning as well.”
“That’s my handsome son! We had his grad portraits taken by  Karen McKinnon last year and it was wonderful. He had such a great time. We also arranged to have some family photos done at the same time as it hand been years since we had one taken. I highly recommend doing this for you and your grad.”

Some families aim to book on grad weekend, but most often these sessions are scheduled in the weeks leading up to that huge weekend, or in the month following. Questions or to book – 250-890-9222 or info@mckinnonphotography.com
