Celebrate National Photography Month & Gradutation

National Photography Month was officially recognized by Congress in 1987 and has been a favorite time of year for both amateur shutterbugs and professional photographers ever since. This month, people all over the nation are doing their best to use cameras of all sizes, shapes, and models to elevate photography to an art form. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and we agree. Ever since the first photograph was taken, images focusing on all types of subjects have been taken by photographers all around the world. Photographs have been around for almost 200 years, and many are unforgettable.

A camera can capture a fleeting moment in time and make the viewer feel as though they were there, experiencing the moment. Photographs can evoke emotion, stirring empathy in the heart of the viewer, showcase a location so well that simply looking at the picture transports the soul of the person gazing at it until they imagine they are physically present in the scene captured by the camera. Photographs can freeze time, seizing a moment of youth to be relived through the years. Photos can encapsulate memories to be relished and relived year after year. A child’s various stages of growth and development can be chronicled through photographs, marking the changes that each new year brings. Scholastic achievements, sports trophies, school dances, plays, volunteer events, all are wonderful fodder for memorable photos.

Graduating from high school or college is a wonderful time to take advantage of the power of photography to share a very special moment in time with friends, relatives, and loved ones. Graduation announcements and invitations that feature your graduate’s photograph are a fantastic way to celebrate their achievements and share their commencement into the next phase of life.


As you celebrate National Photography Month, consider announcing your student’s graduation with a photo card announcement and inviting friends, family, and classmates to the graduation festivities with a stunning photo card invitation from Fine Stationery. Remember to have a camera on hand to capture the memories of this once in a lifetime celebration!
