Stover Photography Offers Free Graduation Pictures to Celebrate Students
Updated: May 21, 2020
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about many challenges, one of those being the inability to hold graduation ceremonies for high school seniors. While the safety and well-being of our community is top priority, the cancelation of senior events is rightfully disheartening. Graduating is a big deal, and these students deserve to be celebrated!
School districts and community members are rising above the challenges of our current reality and finding creative ways to acknowledge these students’ accomplishments. Scott Stover, owner of Stover Photography, is one of those people.
Scott is giving high school seniors the opportunity to come to his farm and take cap and gown portraits in a safe, socially-distant way. He will be setting up a backdrop and capturing graduation photos for students in the area, all at no charge.
“I’m just a dad with a camera,” says Scott, who has been involved with photography for 8 years. Scott also volunteers as a photographer at many of the Everett Area School District’s events. “I’m at every sporting event, band concert, and choir performance,” Scott says. “If there’s something for the kids, I’ll be there.”
Scott normally photographs graduating seniors at the Everett graduation ceremony. “I take pictures of the kids walking down the aisle. I want to keep that tradition going,” he says. “I’m trying to get as many kids as possible from the Everett School District, so I can photoshop them into one big photo. But if you’re from a different school district, you’re still welcome.”
Scott has also been using his photography skills to capture front-porch photos, drive-by graduations, baby showers, and more. “I want to keep the community involved and engaged during these strange times,” he says.
