Joyful Connection in Family Photographs

We’ve come a long way from those stiff family portraits with fake smiles – modern photographers pride themselves on showcasing a family’s special connection in family photographs.

Every year, we assign a central theme to our Family Retreat; an overarching idea that students can keep in mind when going out to practice what they have learned.

“Joyful Connection” was the theme of this Retreat, and when we asked students to show us their resulting work, we were blown away at the emotion and bonding shown in our students’ work. We are so proud of you all!
