School Portrait 09'

After home schooling our 2 boys for 4 years, they now go to a private school.

I'm a commercial photographer and have never done anything like this before, but since it's their school, I agreed to do the school portraits for the school.

It was definitely more fun than I expected.

Its a good thing pictures are now, and not a few months from now, when your beard would probably scare the living daylights out of most kids.

That sounds amazing. I did the same for my kids' pre-school teachers, but they almost all hated their photos.

I used to teach at a private school, and did my photos one years as a geeky professor. It was fun. Wish I had a copy somewhere.

that is nice of you! The guy who did the school portraits at my high school is the same dude that owns the Castle where they throw the Renaissance Fair every year. His assistant always wore authentic medieval garb.. maybe that should be your thing too?
