It was 2011 when we photographed our first class with Kids by Design pre-school in Maple Ridge. We planned for an outdoor theme. But it rained out. So we improvised and used a section of the unfinished basement. Despite the weather tossing us a curve ball, the resulting images were fantastic giving a stylized gritty look (Check it!). Over the years, we have been blessed with amazing weather for our school shoots and therefore utilized outdoor park setting. But we never forgot about that rainy day years ago. We often mused wouldn’t it be great if we can photograph some urban style portraits?
One day Regent Christian Online Academy approached us to photograph their super cool children. However they informed us of a lack of park land location which might be a challenge. Returning from our scouting trip, we were pumped that RCOA’s school location provided just the ingredients for an urban themed portrait. In addition these home-educated kids were just…. first class!
