A Reason To Smile



Important message regarding this year’s senior portrait sessions.

Your child’s safety as well as the safety of our photography staff is our upmost concern. In coordination with school Administrators and Barksdale, the difficult but sensible decision was made that clothing should not be shared, and the photographers should not touch and dress students in formal wear or cap and gowns.

Parents have been inquiring about the option of bringing in their own cap and gown that a sibling or friend wore in the past. This is something we ask you to reconsider for two reasons.

Number one, is the quality difference in the cap and gowns. The ones used for photography are high quality and cloth, the ones the students wear for graduation are shiny polyester. This quality difference is very noticeable when photographed and not recommended.

Number two, we assure you that the opportunity for a formal cap and gown photo will be provided as soon as we feel it is safe. Barksdale needs time to prepare in order to take cap and gown photos in a safe and responsible way.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in keeping everyone safe. If you have any additional questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us directly at 800-220-7667.
