FINE ART SCHOOL PHOTOGRAPHY

FINE ART SCHOOL PORTRAITS IN

PHILADELPHIA'S WESTERN SUBURBS & MAIN LINE

For those interested in a modern and fresh approach to school photography.

 

Fine Art School Portraits transform traditional school photography into modern portraits, which focus on authentically capturing the personalities of each child. These result in timeless images that you'll cherish for a lifetime!

My boutique, hands-on service is customized to the needs and values of your school and is available year-round. Unlike larger companies, I prioritize taking time to connect with each child during their session to highlight their unique self. My aim is to create a simple, laid-back experience that helps each child feel comfortable in front of the camera. I will never force a child to pose in a way that is unnatural, awkward or forced. 

How it Works

School Photography FAQ

WHAT TYPES OF SCHOOLS DO YOU WORK WITH?

l primarily work with preschools with children between the ages of 1-5, however if you would like to offer this at your daycare or school, please reach out to discuss this option. Over the last seven years, I have photographed children of all ages (0-18) within my larger portfolio of work.

IS THIS RIGHT FOR MY SCHOOL?

l believe all families deserve high-quality images of their children. If you find that your families are looking for an elevated and more authentic portrait of their child, this is the perfect option for you. If the administration is looking for a streamlined and modern operation, this would be a great fit for the school.

HOW DOES THIS WORK?

My goal is to provide exemplary customer service from the time your school books through the delivery of all orders. Prior to picture day, I will communicate with schools to make sure timelines and expectations are clear.  Parents/guardians will be provided with information to answer questions about what to expect and help them prepare for a "different" picture day. 

 

On picture day, children will be photographed in a predetermined location, either indoors against a simple black background, or outdoors to highlight your school's campus. I will spend a few minutes with each child to get to know them and best capture their individual personality. I will also take staff and class photos if needed.

Within 2-3 weeks, families will be provided with a link to a password-protected online ordering gallery for your school. Each child will have 2-5 images, presented in both color and black and white. Families can choose which image(s) they want to order. They have access to both digital images and physical prints. All orders will be placed online and prints will be delivered to the school within four weeks of picture day. I provide my contact information to field questions directly from parents and families. 

DOES THIS COST MORE THAN TRADITIONAL SCHOOL PHOTOGRAPHY?

All of my prices and packages are designed to be competitive with the larger big box companies. There is no up front cost and all profit is made from orders. Families can choose what they would like to purchase after they view the images. The final images are available to families as both digital and physical prints and products.

WHAT TIME OF YEAR DO YOU BOOK SCHOOLS?

I offer this service year-round and schools can coordinate a date with me that works best for their calendar. Some schools prefer photos in the winter and spring when things are calmer. Others may decide to offer school portraits twice a year, as young children change so much within a single school year.

WHERE DO YOU TAKE SCHOOL PHOTOS?

I will visit your school to determine the best spot to take your school photos. This may be in an unused classroom or other open space. Or, if you prefer (and weather depending) we can find a place outdoors if you feel a natural setting is more aligned with your school's vision.

DO YOU PROVIDE CLASS PHOTOS?

Definitely! If your school would like class photos we can also arrange to take these during your photo day.
