boutique School portraits
WHAT IS BOUTIQUE SCHOOL PHOTOGRAPHY?
Unlike large corporate photography operations - that often result in traditional cheesy photos with forced smiles, sulks, bright flashes and entirely unflattering backgrounds, my boutique school photography sessions are an entirely personal custom made experience.
My aim is to provide a light, fun and relaxing environment for the children to allow them to be themselves naturally. I never force a smile and simply let them be themselves so that their beautiful personalities shine through. The results are timeless portraits that will last a lifetime.
I only work with a small number of schools throughout the year so that I am able to dedicate all my attention to the students and their families who have chosen me to capture them.
WHAT SERVICES DO YOU OFFER?
I am entirely an online operation after photo day. My services include:
A detailed PDF describing the shooting day preparation for families and children, and all ordering procedures will be provided to the school to be distributed to families prior to photo day.
I provide all the equipment and personnel needed for school photo day.
I work with the schools on scheduling class photos and individual portraits on photo day.
Full editing suite will be provided and images will be available on average 4 weeks after photo day.
Once images are ready, families are linked to password-protected online ordering galleries. These will be organised according to class, year group, age, or whatever grouping makes sense for the school.
Each child is provided with 2-5 images both in colour and in black and white.
The family may choose the photos they want printed and can be ordered online from the gallery and delivered directly to the school.
Boutique product options such as canvas prints, framing, albums etc will be available to purchase directly from the gallery.
I provide the school with all high resolution digital files to use for yearbooks, website, school advertising, the school wishes to use the images. A model release form will be sent out to each family to sign permission for this.
I can also take Staff portraits on the same day and provide a complimentary print package for staff members as well.
I will handle any questions from families about ordering and products.
I am more than willing to work with schools to provide custom services that fit each school’s unique needs.
HOW MANY STUDENTS CAN YOU ACCOMMODATE?
I work with schools with student numbers as small as 20, and I am ready to work with schools with as many as 800 children. Ages range between 1-18.
ARE THESE 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 products to fit everyone's needs.
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.
