Class of 2016 Senior Magazine

Class-of-2016-Senior-Magazine-William-Edwards-Photography_0001

It’s that time of the year again when we start photographing the high school Juniors that will be going into their Senior year after summer break!

It’s funny, many students feel like they don’t need their senior portraits, or that they don’t want them. The reality is that these portraits aren’t for them, they are for their parents! In one short year, the student will go off on their next life adventure – many away to college. These senior portraits will be a treasured memory that their parents will have to look at while they are away. And then later in life, it turns out that the parents pass down the portrait back to their child and/or their grandchildren as a family heirloom.

These senior portraits can be the opportunity for the students to show who they are and what they have accomplished so far. And, for many people, this will be last time they take a professional portrait alone. Later, it will be done with a spouse or significant other, and then eventually their own family! This is the only time that a young adult is in 100% control of how these images should reflect their unique personalities.

Memories that will Last a Lifetime – Photo Restoration

Photo-Preservation_Restoration-William-Edwards-Photography_0009

We believe that capturing your current family portraits is VERY important, but preserving the old photo memories is just as important. Requests for photo restorations are something we get often at the studio, and we are always happy to say: “YES, we can help!”

What is Photo Restoration?

A photo restoration is when a client will bring in an old photo of their loved ones (usually a portrait of a member of the older generations in their families, but sometimes an older snapshot of a moment in time). These photos have been damaged—from minor cracks or fading to major tears and discoloration. Our job is to restore the image to its original glory!

Never worry about your images again!

With the materials and inks we use today for printing, our restored version will last much longer without having to worry about fading or discoloration. Plus, we are able to save your refurbished image digitally, so you can save the digital file for many years to come. This makes an amazing gift for everyone in the family.

Recently, we had local graffiti artist Michael Ramirez in to do some amazing work for our studio. He completely renovated our graffiti alley for the class of 2016 seniors, as well as our stairway, school bus and an amazing American flag.

Here is a little more about Michael:

Born in 1990 to the city of Los Angeles, in an era where graffiti and skating flooded its youth. Growing up in the East LA region he was heavily influenced by multiple graffiti artists and their style, creatively sculpting his own to this day. 2008 brought a big move to the Antelope Valley, where graffiti wasn’t as active, steered him towards the finer arts and other mediums: acrylic, watercolor, oil pastels ext. He gained huge interests in abstract, calligraphy & comic style arts. In 2014, Michael entered a tattoo apprenticeship, and continues to push his skills to new levels and hopes to gain the title of a tattoo artist. His ultimate goal is continuing to create art in many ways, shapes, forms or colors.
