fine art school portraits
Fine Art school portraits are a modern approach to school photos. My work is natural, relaxed and authentic. I never force a smile, I don’t use awkward poses, and I just aim to capture the child as they are on that day. The results are genuine and timeless portraits that are far from the traditional cheesy photos we have become accustomed to with bright flashes and unflattering, busy backgrounds. I provide a relaxed and fun experience for your children and take pride in providing an environment where the kids can be themselves.
My goal is to provide a professional yet personal experience to all families attending the schools that have chosen me to photograph their students. Unlike large, corporate photography operations, I only take on a select number of schools so that I can provide superior customer service and artistic images.
what services do you offer?
I am a completely online operation. Families are linked to password-protected online ordering galleries. Galleries are set up according to grade, homeroom, or whatever grouping which makes sense for the school. Each child will be provided 2-5 images, presented in both color and black and white. The family may chose the photos they want printed, as opposed to having a pose chosen for them. I also provide boutique product choices such as canvas gallery wraps and digital images for future printing and archiving. A detailed PDF describing all ordering procedures and shooting day preparation will be provided to each school to be distributed to families prior to photo day.
- Prints are ordered online and delivered directly to the school.
- I provide all equipment and personnel needed for photo day.
- I provide the school with all high-resolution digital files to use for yearbooks, website, school advertising, school ID’s, or however the school wishes to use the images.
- I handle any questions from parents and families about ordering and products.
- I take staff photos and provide a complimentary print package for staff members as well.
- I am willing to work with schools to provide custom services that fit your unique needs.
how many students can you accommodate?
I am ready to work with schools with as many as 350 children. I have worked with children from newborn to age 18 in my custom photography business.
are the images expensive?
I have competitive rates, and nothing is due up-front, all profit is made from ordering. I offer a variety of collections and a-la-carte products to fit everyone’s needs. I also donate 10% of my net profit to the schools that I photograph.
what time of year do you conduct the shoots?
I work with schools on an individual basis to plan a time that works best for them, during their academic year.
