Prom 2017 | Central Arkansas photographer

MHS-0064For the last several weeks, we have been celebrating prom with our senior spokesmodels. WOW – at the beautiful dresses and girls. The guys in their sharp tuxes have been so cooperative and fun.

Prom has become a HUGE deal for high school students everywhere, so I thought just for fun, we’d find out where prom came from.

MHS-0107“The why of prom’s origin story is simple to answer. Prom, short for promenade, “the formal, introductory parading of guests at a party,” began in the mid- to late 1800s at colleges and universities in the Northeast to promote social etiquette and manners in each year’s graduating class.” Who knew right? I went on the red “Early citations of prom link it to the annual Ivy League tradition of “‘presentation week,’ during which formal dress and dancing accompanied a promenade concert.” After the turn of the century, prom events expanded to high schools, as well, for much the same reason they were started on the university level.”

These spokesmodels below have all booked their official senior portrait session for early summer. If you have a 2018 senior, the time to book is now, beat that summer heat. BOOK NOW
