Class picture with a twist!

There isn’t any doubt that our old grade-school photos end up a revered marker of growth and change in our lives, often becoming a chronology of our favorite but forgettable fashion trends and bad haircuts. The class photo is a tradition we would personally find difficult to forego, but as professional photographers, we can’t help to wish for something much more dynamic.

To raise money for our son Tamaio’s school, we photographed his second grade class with a creative twist. Take a look:

Each student was photographed individually in a mid-flight fit of expression. The kids could not have enjoyed this exercise more, and hopefully, will be just as excited by the finished piece. We certainly enjoyed the process, and look forward to supporting Portland Public Schools again in the future.
