I photographed a hundred plus adorable school kiddos and had a lot of fun in the process.
Some parents who are having difficulties viewing their child/children’s photo requested me to give them fool proof steps.
O.K., here are 8 steps to follow:
Step 1: Log on your Facebook account
Step 3: After selecting you will see this page and you need to click the ”+1 Add Friend”
Step 4: Wait for us to accept your “friend request”. You will see the button change to “+1 friend request sent”
Step 5: Once we confirm, you will get a Facebook notification that Angela Martin (Redboots) accepted your friend request . Your notification might not happen until the end of the day if I’m away from my office.
Step 7: After selecting you will see this page and you need to click the ”photos”
Step 8: Find which photo album you would like to view!

Schools bring photographers in every year, and they all deliver similar results. I’m on a quest to reinvent the school picture.
It’s simple: Just let children, be children
I’ve been warned that some people are nostalgic about the classic school picture and don’t like change. I’m taking baby steps to reinvent school portraits. First, I introduce monochromatic prints but still offer colour which gets an overall good response. The second change is omitting the paper backdrop and using the school grounds. I found the advantage of the fresh air beneficial to not having headshots that resemble a stuffiness of tightly controlled passport photos.
I leave children to do what they do best, that is; be kids, play, and have fun. I capture a moment.
Today was brilliant seeing some familiar faces, meeting new amazing individuals and creating some fun and modern school portraits. I enjoyed listening and chatting with the children. I found out who has inspiring dreams to become Ireland’s next top president and whose Halloween costumes are in the throes of being made. What a great day we all had and looking forward for Monday’s family school photos.
