modern school portraits…
A different way to approach school photography.
As a boutique photographer, I offer a customized and professional experience to both schools and families on a limited basis. I strive to create a warm and personal relationship that isn’t readily found in large, corporate photography studios.
Each child who sits in front of my camera is given care and attention to elicit true emotions. Smiles, stoicism, laughter, and sometimes silly faces are all part of what comes through in children. I will never force what doesn’t come naturally (including awkward poses). A timeless, authentic portrait is created without manufactured backgrounds or harsh, unflattering light. The experience is light-hearted and gives everyone space to be themselves.
I am committed to a simple process for both schools and families, so galleries and ordering all take place through a secure, password-protected online portal. Galleries are created by teacher/grade or if your school has a different preference, that will be accommodated. Each child’s gallery will include 2-5 images (color and black and white) from which families may choose their favorite(s) for print or digital delivery. Ordering is done a la carte, eliminating packages with print sizes nobody wants. I offer a variety of sizes to please most families.
Detailed information will be provided to the school’s point person before picture day that describes the process, ordering, and delivery.
what to expect:
Prints are ordered online. Two time frames will be given for school delivery and for those who wish to have product sent directly to their home.
I will arrive at the pre-determined location on site with all necessary equipment and assistant(s).
If your school requires administrative materials (yearbook, mug book, ID cards, etc) this will be outlined in the Client Agreement. I am happy to offer these items free of charge.
I will take faculty and administrative photos and deliver high-resolution digital files.
I will field any questions regarding the viewing and ordering process.
Turnaround time is prompt (2-3 weeks after last session).
Simple, straightforward, and competitive pricing for all products (print and digital). Families do not need to pre-pay for images, or fill out paper forms, or do anything besides wait for the email that the gallery is open for viewing and ordering. Easy!
school sizes + Types + timing:
I photograph all types of schools (preschool, K-12, private) and can accommodate up to 700 children. I am happy to work with schools on finding the right time to photograph, be it fall, winter, or spring.
