Props add a little life to your portraits and are great reminders of all those good times! When preparing for your portrait session you might be unsure of what prop to bring.  We’ve come up with a list of some of the most popular props to give you some inspiration! Not on the list? No worries! We want you to get creative and have fun at your session. We’re open to any props that you want to bring along. Whether you're graduating from high school or post-secondary, here are some things to consider:

Your cat or dog
Our furry friends have been along for the journey, giving us some much-needed love when we needed it most, through the meltdowns and the late-night study sessions.

Your family
Literally and figuratively, they have propped you up and helped you through these challenging years.  Show them you care by having them in one of your shots. 

If you're part of a team or athletic club you could consider bringing:
-       A jersey to wear overtop your formal wear
-       Cleats and ball to pose with
-       Ballet shoes to wear and strike a pose or just to hold
-       Ball or stick
-       Trophy/Championship Rings 

Play an instrument?
Your fondest memories may have been with your bandmates, commemorate that by bringing your instrument along.

Missing someone and wishing they could be with you on this special day?

Represent your field
For example, if you're a doctor, you could bring a few textbooks to lean on or a stethoscope and a lab coat.

  2. Going to graduate school was a positive decision for me. I enjoyed the coursework, the presentations, the fellow students, and the professors. And since my company reimbursed 100% of the tuition, the only cost that I had to pay on my own was for books and supplies. Otherwise, I received a free master’s degree. All that I had to invest was my time. Pure balance dog food
