WHAT IS FINE ART SCHOOL PHOTOGRAPHY?
My goal is to provide a custom, boutique experience to all families with children attending the schools who have chosen me to photograph their students. My service is personal and professional. Unlike large corporate photography operations, I only take on a few select schools so that I can provide superior customer service and artistic images.
I never force a smile and simply aim to capture the essence of the children I photograph. No awkward poses or faces, just the authentic child, 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 fun experience for your children and take pride in providing an environment where the kids can relax and be themselves, naturally.
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 or homeroom. Each child will be provided 2-5 images, presented in both color and black & white. The family gets to choose 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 their unique needs.
ARE THESE IMAGES EXPENSIVE?
My rates are extremely competitive, and in line with what parents can expect to pay traditional school photographers. 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. And as a thank you to the schools for working with me, I also donate 10% of my gross back to the schools that I photograph!
HOW MANY STUDENTS CAN YOU ACCOMMODATE?
I have provided this service to schools as small as 15 and am ready to work with schools with as many as 500 children. I have worked with kids of all ages in my boutique school photography business.
WHAT TIME OF YEAR DO YOU CONDUCT THESE FINE ART SCHOOL PHOTO SHOOTS?
I work with each individual school to schedule shoots any time during the academic year. Already have fall photos planned? No worries. These can be offered the opposite season.
