So it took me a little while to break back into my blog password after my server changed things up, but finally here we are again!
A couple weeks ago the Manchester Co-op had it’s graduation ceremony, and as usual, it was adorable.
The kids and their teary-eyed parents gathered at the park, with the big bounce house teasing them as they tried to keep their clothes nice before pictures, pomp and circumstance. I admit, I laughed a little inside. (hehe) Been there, done that. Gathering the kids was a little like herding cats, as the saying goes, but eventually we got them all in one spot and looking (somewhat) at the camera. Ok some were looking at the camera, and some were looking at the big group of moms and dads behind the camera.
The ceremony went off without a hitch, lots of cute answers to the question of what they wanted to be when they grow up. Apparently there are lots of ballerinas and runners in the class.
I got some very cute candid shots along with the more “formal” ones we took prior to the ceremony.
Check out the video I made here:

Manchester’s Mother son dance was a lot of fun this year. I saw many familiar faces and enjoyed watching the sweet bond that a mother shares with her son. As my two oldest boys move out of state on the same weekend, it was a reminder of my time with them at a younger age. Enjoy!
You can check out the photos here:
The photos included in the dance admission will be sent to the school soon
Manchester’s 2013 daddy daughter dance (fairy dance) was so much fun this year! There were so many beautiful girls in lovely outfits escorted by handsome dads, grandpas, uncles, and friends. Some couples had to wait for their turn in front of the camera, but I hope they agree that it was worth the wait when they see the photos!
Re-order forms were sent home with the photo, and re-orders are due by March 15th.

A few years ago, Unforgettable Photos began the ROAD CREW program, a twist on the traditional “rep”programs used by most senior portrait studios. Always striving to be different from other photographers in the area, we wanted to offer a program that was beneficial to the studio AND the parents, yet interesting and fun for the seniors. We take a small group, and venture out to some obscure location that wouldn’t normally be a destination for a senior photo shoot. The seniors in the program get a unique session, and the studio gets some awesome shots to use for brochures, facebook, and website, along with entries for the competitions we enter every year. This year, some of the parents made a comment about getting in on the fun, and I thought it would be interesting to see how we could photograph the two groups differently in the same location. So the Senior VS parents challenge emerged!
First, we took the seniors out to our location, an auto salvage yard. I had a concept in mind to have the two groups pose around school buses in a head-to-head manner. I gave the kids some direction as to possibilities, but wanted them to make the shot their own. They had some great ideas! Then I took the parents out to the same location and gave them a little info on the concept. They ran with it, too! The seniors were talking smack about how the parents would never climb up on a bus top or do anything daring, and how they have youth on their side, so they think they will win with the most votes. The parents set out to prove them wrong. So now comes the time for the public to decide! Who rocked the junkyard better? Seniors or parents?

And then cast your vote on the poll on our facebook page! http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10151210293163112.469559.73026378111&type=1#!/unforgettablephotos
Voting will close on Saturday, September 30th at 2:00 pm. Share the link and get all your friends to vote for your favorite! Remember, this is a friendly competition and we don’t want any mean spirited comments! Have FUN!
To be considered for the ROAD CREW program, upcoming seniors can apply at the end of their junior year, via the tab on the unforgettable photos facebook page. Or call the studio at 734-428-0888 to get more information.

Finally recovered from my crazy prom weekend, and have the images up online. Thanks everyone for your patience.
Prom was beautiful! We were at Manchester’s prom before dinner, and then at Saline’s prom after 8:00 for the rest of the evening. We saw so many fantastic outfits! The images will be posted online for two weeks. Images can be viewed and ordered directly from the website link. Any questions should be directed to email@example.com or you can call Unforgettable Photos at 734-428-0888. Orders will take approximately two weeks to be completed. Saline prom orders will be mailed to your home instead of taken to the school this year. $6.00 shipping will automatically be added to your order. Manchester orders will be given the option of shipping or pick up from the studio.
Thank you for your business,
It’s PROM WEEK! I can’t wait to see all the dresses and tuxes at prom this Saturday. Unforgettable Photos will be set up for formal photos for Manchester’s Prom, being held at Washtenaw Community College from 6:30-7:30. We will have someone taking candid photos throughout the night, as well as the crowing of the prince/princess and king/queen.
We will be set up for formal photos for Saline’s Prom, at Eastern Michigan University from 8:00 p.m. until 11:00 p.m. This year Unforgettable Photos is offering the option of ordering facebook sized digital photos, which can be sent directly to your facebook or mobile device. Also, we are offering a new custom designed accordian wallet album, which can feature up to eight images. You picked out the perfect shoes, dress, tux and tie, not to mention all the accessories, and the accordian album is the perfect way to highlight these details!
Attached is the Unforgettable Photos prom photo order form. We will have extras at prom, but it always helps if you have one ready when you get there. We will accept cash, check, Mastercard, Visa or Discover. (Right-click the form to print)
See you at prom!
Friday night’s Beauty and The Beast themed sweetheart dance was so awesome! Kudos to Jackie Bonner, Jen Alexa and the PTO for organizing and running a wonderful evening for all the little princesses and the special guys in their life. The girls all looked stunning and the guys looked great, too. I saw so much glam I thought I was at the prom!
I know everyone is anxiously awaiting the posting of the photos we took, so I have attached the link here: www.manchesterdance.photoherald.com
As part of the admission to the dance, each girl will receive ONE 5×7 with their guy. Some guys requested more than one pose, so you may see extras of them. Do not be jealous, they are still getting ONE 5×7, which will be the traditional one. I hope to have the 5×7′s delivered to the PTO ladies later this week, and then they will deliver them to the school so you can get them as quickly as possible. In the meantime, if you love your photo you can order extras (’cause you know grandma and aunt Sophia will want one too).
Thanks so much for once again trusting me with your memories, I’m certain they will be Unforgettable Photos!
