If it’s not easy, Megan Moskalyk sure makes it look that way.
A photographer with Mountain West Studios since 2012, Moskalyk was tasked with taking the official graduation class photo at Vernon’s Clarence Fulton Secondary School Wednesday, June 21.
It starts with the grad class getting their gowns (no caps for this photo). The grads put them on, pose for obligatory selfies with besties and others, or for their parents and siblings who are on hand to document the momentous occasion.
Once gown and candid pics are secured, it’s over to the front of the school where, try as they may, the grads look to organize themselves into position.
Doesn’t quite work.
Enter Moskalyk, standing on a ladder, taking charge. Tall ones, naturally, at the back. Not-so-tall ones at the front, everyone else in the middle.
After about five minutes of directing the less-than-100 grads into place, Moskalyk has those in front put their feet together and clasp their hands.
With perfect lighting outside on this Wednesday afternoon, Moskalyk gets the grads’ attention – ie, everybody looking at her – and snaps the formal photo. When that’s done to her satisfaction, she snaps a few fun poses with the class, then descends down the ladder.
