WHAT IS BOUTIQUE SCHOOL PHOTOGRAPHY?
I provide a custom, boutique experience for schools looking for fresh and timeless portraits for their students. I only take a limited number of schools which allows me to keep my service personal and professional. The result is artistic images and superior customer service.
My goal is to capture each child as they truly are. I am there to document their essence. To make a time capsule for them to take with them. The finished product is a timeless portrait that families will want to hang on their walls. My style is far from the traditional photos with bright flashes and busy backgrounds we have all become accustomed to. I create a light and fun atmosphere where children can truly be themselves. I never force a smile but instead bring it out naturally.
WHAT SERVICES DO YOU OFFER?
The entire process is online. No more shuffling of forms to school and back. Families are sent a link to a password-protected gallery where they can order prints or digital downloads. Galleries will be organized according to grade, homeroom, or whatever grouping makes sense for the school. Each child will be provided with 2-6 images in both color and black and white. A PDF describing the ordering process and shooting day preparation will be provided ahead of time to be distributed to families prior to photo day.
Prints are ordered online and will be delivered personally to the school by yours truly.
I provide everything needed for the day. I will arrive with all the equipment and help I need.
I provide the school with all high resolution digital files to use for yearbooks, website, school advertising, or however the school wishes to use the images.
I handle any questions from parents and families about ordering and products.
I take staff and class photos.
I am willing to work with schools to provide a service that meets your unique needs.
HOW MANY STUDENTS CAN YOU ACCOMMODATE?
I can provide this service to schools as small as 60 and am ready to work with schools with as many as 1000 children.
ARE THESE IMAGES EXPENSIVE?
I have competitive rates and nothing is due up front. All profits are made from print orders. I offer a variety of collections and a-la-carte products. I also donate 10% of my gross to the schools that I photograph!
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.
YOU ARE ALSO A DOULA. HOW DOES THIS WORK WITH YOUR ON-CALL SCHEDULE?
I block my Doula schedule off to be able to offer this service. I will be there ready to go on the day of our shoot. I also provide a fast turnaround for parents. Galleries will be delivered electronically within two weeks of our shoot date.
