We noticed something strange in the air this week. Something unusual. Or quirky. Whatever it is though, it’s making us feel delighted and cheerful.

You see, this week isn’t like any other regular week at Artona. More students are eager to get their graduation portraits taken and they’re gathering their close ones to celebrate that academic milestone in their life.

How do we know? Well, take a look at this tweet from Twitter user @vaaaynguyen.

We love having happy students, such as @vaaaynguyen, come in to get their pictures taken!

Others, like Twitter user @AHDNguyen_, has been throughly satisfied with their photo session with us.

Heart eyes emoji to you too, @AHDNguyen_! 😍

Btw, the Spongebob reaction gifs were unintentional…

As always, we feature some of our favourite group photos for each week. We’ve been noticing some creative, funny, and wacky ones as well… in addition to looking spiffy throughout your Artona session, why not throw in a peace sign ✌🏻 or bring your beloved pet? Tag us with your pictures on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram and we’ll try our best to save you a spot on next week’s blog post. Promise.

👆👇👉… we’re hoping it’s some secret code for being cool, @doryy_08.
Don’t mess with @harvey_alindogan’s squad. 😎

Lastly, we’re pleased to announce that we have won an Out of the Box Award at the 2015 InnovationNow Photo Business & Technology Summit in San Francisco, USA in Millennial Photography:
