Photo Day Tips

Tips for taking the best photos

Before photo day

  • If you suspect you’ll need a haircut before photo day, aim to have it done a week ahead of time.
  • Check to make sure your uniform or clothing for photo day is clean and wrinkle free.
  • Practice your smile and posture in front of a mirror before photo day.

On your photo day

  • Wear bright and solid colours for school portraits because it emphasizes your face.
  • Wearing long sleeves allows the face to stand out more as well.
  • You might want to bring a comb to make sure your hair is perfect right before your picture.
  • If you normally wear glasses, feel free to wear them for your photos. Our photographers are trained to reduce glare on the lens.
  • Remember to relax and have fun – our photographers are known to be fun and awesome people.

High school grad photos

  • We recommend wearing a white collared shirt for a nice contrast against the dark gown.
  • Pair a buttoned up collar with a tie in a colour that works with the gown; we can provide a tie if needed.
  • Feel free to bring a casual outfit and props that emphasize your personality for optional casual shots.

Junior Milestone and Kindergarten Celebration photos

  • Depending on the school, milestone and celebration photos may be taken with a graduation gown or in casual clothes.
  • A collared shirt pairs nicely with the graduation gown. Our photographers will have some on hand in case your child doesn’t own one.
  • All props will be provided by Edge on the day of the shoot.
