TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Teachers at Roberts Elementary School are finding a unique way to take their yearbook photos.

Every year, the staff crowd together for one big picture, but this year is different because of the pandemic.

So the principal says she contacted one of the parents at the school who happens to be a photographer.

The solution? Taking photos of the staff individually using a small rectangular box.

It's an idea they say they got from an Instagram post.

"It's actually been fun watching because some people are a little uncomfortable getting in there and then they get relaxed and have a little fun in there," said Kim McFarland, the principal at Roberts Elementary.

"We have done some big projects but maybe never one like this, a big composite project like this and we are excited," said Kira Derryberry of Kira Derryberry Photography.

All the photos will be stitched together into one giant photo. The school has about 110 workers.
