Finally, Yes, it’s mortar board time… Congratulations!
Many of you might be thinking of doing a graduation photoshoot, or simply been tasked by your parents to find a studio for this…The brief to you could be… “We need to get your graduation photoshoot done and update the family portrait to put up on the wall…please find a studio that can do that”
You scratch your head and think…”Erm.. I’m not sure if I want to do the photoshoot though….“
For those of you who are looking for something more FUN while having some formal setting to please your parents… please read on…
It is easy to just dismiss the idea for graduation portrait photo shoot. However, Here are 4 reasons why you should totally do it…
1. Avoid Parents’ Nagging – Yes, we know, we have all been there and done that… But really, doing this kills 3 birds with one stone! The shoot includes your solo graduation portrait, family portrait in both formal and semi-formal setting, and lastly your professional headshot. This is now so important as you need it for that linkedin profile photo and CV to increase your chances of being found and also for securing that meeting.
2. Celebrate Your Achievement – We are often pushing ourselves too hard and often forget to celebrate small successes and achievements along the way. Going through the years of education, rushing to meet assignment deadlines, learning teamwork and presentation skills in school is no feat. Remember those late night oil that you’ve been burning during those days? It’s time to celebrate all your hard work! And celebrate it with your family, your rock.
3. Look Great on An Updated Family Portrait at Home – When was the last time you had your Family Portrait Done? Were you still little in that photo? Are all the family members still there? or there are more addition to the family?
If the family portrait at home isn’t exactly your favourite, it’s the perfect opportunity now to update your family pictures!
4. Please Your Parents – they probably spent lots of money on your studies, this is the least we can do for them as this is one of the moments parents are extremely proud of their children for achieving this milestone. This is probably one milestone with a wall portrait that will be a conversation piece whenever somebody comes over. Its also a milestone that parents feel they have achieved WITH you.
