Scotia-Glenville Prom 2008

Every year one of my favorite photo shoots is the Scotia-Glenville Prom Walk-In. This is the 7th year we’ve provided photos for the kids free of charge. Thanks to my favorite photographer Cindi, I think this year we managed not to miss anyone their beautiful attire.

In total I processed 153 photos which I’ve broken up into two groups. Click below to view.
