School Photography
Yearbook Picture Day Re-imagined

Our goal at MAKO is to make school picture day memorable and headache-less for the staff and teachers involved in the process.

With years of experience in volume school and sports photography, we reconginze that school picture day can take time out of your day as a teacher or administrator, when placed in your hands to plan. 

Which is why we offer each of our clients a "white glove" school photography experience. Allowing us to take most of the weight of school picture day planning off your shoulders, allowing you to focus more on your students and less on school picture day. 

It's Easy as 1 - 2 - 3 ! 

Your Trusted Phoenix School Photographer

Mako is here to help capture the school picture memories of your students as they progress from Kindergarden to 12th Grade, with professional school picture photography.

No matter your school's professional photography needs;  Mako has the tools and experience to accomplish your goals. Locally owned and operated , we strive to serve the schools that are looking for a different option to the large chain/franchise volume school picture companies. 

The New Generation of School Picture Day Discovered

The current generation of parents are by far more in tuned with technology and shopping online than previous generations. After Covid MAKO chose to follow the trend of volume school & sports photography companies that switched from the age old tradition of pre-pay paper forms to View1st (online proofing/ordering) and online pre-pay.

This has allowed us to change how we look at school pictures. We are now putting the choices in the hands of the parents. They are picking their favorite pose/image, their favorite background. Which is giving us happier parents when it comes to school picture day. 

What this mean for our schools is less time dedicated to handing our paper pre-pay forms. Paper forms are still available to those who request them but most of our clients have gone to online pre-pay or our dedicated view1st method. 

Our schools are saving time dealing with the details leading up to and after school picture day.
