What To Wear and Ideas on Hair

School has been in session for a couple of weeks now and school pictures are coming up soon! Here are a few quick tips on how to dress and style your hair for this special day.


  1. Wear a solid color shirt other than white or green. Whites and prints do not photograph well, and green can make it difficult for our photo editors to perfect your image, but layering 2 different solid colors is okay.
  2. A small, simple necklace and/or earrings are just fine. Make sure to be careful not to go too large.
  3. Consider a light application of hairspray or gel, etc. to hold hair in place as best possible. Check out this video on Facebook for some tips!
  4. When making clothing and jewelry selections, as well as when fixing hair, make sure to lean more towards more classic, not super trendy 01-240x300styles.
  5. Help your child practice smiling and sitting up straight, no slouching!
  6. Let your children know that school pictures are not scary. We are there to take a great picture of them to share with everyone that loves them!


Happy Picture Day!!!

Picture Perfect Tips For Picture Day

Some kids are naturals in front of a camera and love taking school pictures, but others, especially the younger set, may have a few reservations. To help calm your child’s nerves so that they can take their best school picture, here is a run down of what they can expect.

  1. Their teacher will line up the class and bring them to the Picture Day set up area, usually a gym or unused hallway.Steve Lata taking a picture of his granddaughter
  2. There will be large backgrounds (they look like big sheets hanging on poles), big bright lights and cameras sitting on tripods.
  3. Also, there will be photographers waiting there with a smile to greet them.
  4. The photographer will seat them on a stool  or have them stand facing the camera, and help guide them to get into the proper position.
  5. Tell your child to remember to sit or stand up straight and smile naturally, as if they were happy to see you!
  6. The photographer will take the picture, and the bright lights will flash.
  7. After reviewing the picture on their laptop, the photographer will excuse the child to their teacher.

Hey Ladies-

It’s that time of year again!  The 19th Annual Cupid Ball was held in our home town, and once again my husband took our two cuties out to dance the night away!  425 girls and their special dates had an amazing time enjoying music, friends, food, crafts and most importantly each other!  Inter-State was proud to join them again this year to share in the tradition of the event and snap pictures of these memories that will last a lifetime!!
