A student’s school pictures follow them the entire year, which is why most students want their school pictures to be top-notch. On Sept. 30, students had the opportunity to retake their school picture.

“[Picture retakes is for] somebody [that] wasn’t here for picture day, or if they ordered pictures, they could come back and have the opportunity for a nicer picture,” Jennifer Strow, Inter-State Studio photographer, said.

Most students that chose to retake their picture did so because of dissatisfaction with the first one.

“I didn’t like the first picture. This is the first year that I am getting my picture retaken,” Xochitl Regalado (12) said.

Although photo equipment is not an everyday sight for students, the photographers have grown accustomed to it.
“It takes us about an hour to set up. We do the same set up everyday; we could probably do it in our sleep,” Rachel Pyne, Inter-State Studio photographer, said.
