Elements of the High School Dance: The School

“School should be fun and memorable and that starts at the top and trickles down and out into the community”

The place where you teach is more than just a building with walls and halls. It is a place of learning with so much history. It is a place where the young start to become somebody. Schools are the cornerstone of communities. Their mascot represents a brand that everyone in the community can recognize. The school is the students, the staff, the volunteers, the alumni and the future students so events trickle out into the community for everyone to enjoy. High school days are important. It is where the youth solidify their opinions of the world and how they are going to relate in it. The school is a vital part of what every person does in their life. For so many the high school years are a great time to look back upon to see how far you have come since. Take every opportunity to remember that you are a part of something special. The legacy of your high school is strengthened every year by new students and graduates. The school should remember its past, support its present and dive into its future.

Q: What about your school’s culture helps you know that you will have a successful high school dance?

Q: What negatives will you have to redirect in order to help everyone feel connected?

Q: What are two positive thoughts, that you can share with others, best describe your school?

Firefly Event Photography & Entertainment, LLC believes that high school event photography should be creative, cost effective for all students and accessible for years. Our system helps every student feel like the homecoming king, prom queen and valedictorian.

Feedback Needed: Animation Script For Our Prom Photography

We are looking to do an animation script for our prom photography and would like your feedback on if the following words deliver a visual as you read the information.

Feel free to share constructive advice so we can deliver the best animation to our potential clients in the near future.

1. It’s prom planning time and if you are like other sponsors you have a budget based on the number of tickets you will sell at a certain price.

2. This budget includes things like the venue, decorations, DJ, and food.

3. If there is any leftover then you may look at a gift for the students that attend in the form of something labeled, or something you can put in their hand.

4. Most schools take the little excess and add a trinket that has impact but no lasting value.

5. At the end of the night when you have spent your entire budget, what do your students have left over?

6. The DJ has pulled the plug, the venue has locked the doors, the photo booth is packed away and you may be stuck with boxes of leftover trinkets that kids don’t want.

7. At Firefly we deliver years of lasting value with our photography system that is accessible to all students at your event.

8. At Prom our photographers capture as many images as your students desire and provide an online gallery to view, share and download the picture.

9. Your students get to create the memories they want with the people they enjoy the most without worrying if they are going to wait two weeks to get images, loose the paper strip from the photo booth machine, or pay extra sums of money per image.

10. It’s time your students had a one-time pay service that lasted longer than a few weeks.

11. Firefly delivers hundreds of images for one payment within 24 hours. Your students never have to worry about losing images or paying extra fees down the road. Access and unlimited downloading never expire.

The Mission of Firefly Event Photography

The Mission of Firefly Event Photography.

When you are hiring a photography company for your students there are a few things that should be delivered. Please compare what we offer when compared to the other photography companies that are available.

As a photography company that looks to positively influence high school students, we believe.

1. All students should have access to excellent images at a low cost.
2. We should keep up with the technological times.
3. We shouldn’t highjack your image and charge an unfair sum of money for you to have it.
4. You should have 24 hour access to high resolution downloads.
5. Every student should get graduation pictures.
6. Secure images properly
7. Become a part of the community of the school.
8. Be of service to our school clients.
9. Provide timely information that helps students and schools improve.
10. Help every student feel important when they are in front of our cameras.

I believe that the money you spend with our company will be small in comparison to what you get in return. To me, it is no longer acceptable to not have a great photography product for all of our students, one that they can afford and one that adds value over decades not just one moment in time.

My mission as the founder of Firefly Event Photography is to capture and secure student’s images so that they can enjoy them well into the future.

Tips to Make Prom Night Better!

Firefly Event Photography Prom 2014

Don’t stress about your prom. Go to have a good time. It is good to put in the effort to make this event a night to remember but there can be a ton of unhealthy stress and expectations that can show up if young adults put too much pressure on having the perfect night. Your prom is designed to set off your life in a direction where dressing up occurs on a regular basis. It is a moment to celebrate your time in high school. It is a night to enjoy your friends while being dress in the finest attire. Here are three tips for an effective night.

1. Plan and Schedule Early: Just like weddings rarely go as planned, prom nights can feel the pressure of the clock. If your event starts at 7:30 then you should be sitting down to dinner at 5:00. Thinking outside the perfection box and realizing that not everyone is going to prom so they really don’t care that you are in a hurry can eliminate much of the stress.

2. Drink Plenty of Water: Take extra care of yourself the week before your prom. Drink plenty of water and make sure you get good nutrition in your system. Proms are usually the last thing before graduation. The senior year can be stressful and your body can only go so far. Good nutrition and proper hydration will eliminate additional aches and pains.

3. Be Gracious: Gratitude goes a long way when you are stressed out. Stress on this night can be caused by thinking that things should be better, dresses should fit perfectly, hair should be wonderful, the waiter should be nice and so on. You can eliminate the stress on your brain by thanking the people that are helping you get ready. Yes, everything may not go your way that night but many things will. Thank everyone sincerely and enjoy a stress free prom night.

We hope you have a great prom night! Follow us on Facebook or Twitter. Leave a comment about the post and tell us how the tips worked. We will be posting videos later so follow our Youtube page here. http://www.youtube.com/user/FireflyEPE/videos?sort=p&flow=grid&view=0

Firefly Event Photography is high volume photography company that helps high school event sponsors add long term value to yearly dances, special events, and graduations.

Currently, professional photography for high schools lacks creativity, is costly, and includes a lengthy turnaround time. These issues have created a frustration from students, parents and sponsors that live in a world where photos are abundant and they don’t have to wait weeks to view and enjoy.

Our unique system and team of photographers provide multiple opportunities for every student to enjoy professional photography without excessive costs. By working with Firefly, our sponsors enjoy a worry free service knowing that the morning after the event their pictures will be ready to view, share and download for free, for life.

The reason I’m so committed to helping high schools is because I’m a former teacher, and I have witnessed the neglect by other photo companies toward schools that didn’t seem lucrative enough for them to show up to their events. I have also witnessed an almost hijacking of images unless the family was willing to pay a large sum of money for a product that didn’t improve even as the technology did.

But when schools bring in firefly, every student feels like the homecoming king, prom queen or the valedictorian.
