A big congratulations to all of the graduating students out there. You did it! Back in January, I’m sure you had big plans that involved gowns, limos and celebrations with friends. No doubt COVID-19 has thrown a wrench into your plans but here’s a few tips for making your graduation memorable.
Book Calgary grad photos
Don’t let this important milestone go by without capturing it on camera. I offer packages for graduates and their families that include up to 1.5 hrs of photography and the high resolution images uploaded to an online gallery.
Wear a cap & gown
Be sure to get some photographs with your cap and gown. This is one of those times where you simply MUST throw your cap up in the air, even if it’s not surrounded by all of your peers. Pre-COVID, this was typically arranged by your school but some of my grads are arranging their own caps and gowns through Canadian Caps & Gowns.
Let’s see your grad outfit
You spent all of that time and money picking out the perfect grad outfit, let’s be sure to capture it. In Calgary, the Peace Bridge is a popular spot for grads but I’m happy to make other location recommendations as well.
Make your Mom happy
She’s usually the person behind the camera so be sure to get photos with your family at this important time. We’ll be sure to be mindful of social distancing requirements and guidelines for group gatherings.
Make it special
I’ve seen so many fun ideas for planning a noteworthy graduation party. Check out a few online resources including Martha Stewart, for ideas on adding a little pomp and circumstance to the day. How cute is this grad with her balloon bouquet?
I’d love to chat with you about options for your graduate. Give me a shout!
