What is Boutique School Photography?
My goal is to provide a custom, boutique experience to all families 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 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 photos we have become accustomed to. I provide a light, fun experience for your children and take pride in providing an environment where the kids can relax and be themselves.
How many students can you accommodate?
I have provided my services to schools as small as 60 and can accommodate schools with as many as 250 children. I have worked with kids ages 1-18 in my professional photography career for over seven years.
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, classroom, or whatever grouping makes sense for the school. Each child will be provided 3-6 images, presented in both color and black and white. The family may 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 photo 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 website, school advertising, school ID’s, or however the school chooses to use the images.
I handle any questions from parents and families about ordering and products.
I am willing to work with schools to provide custom services that fit your unique needs.
Are these images expensive?
I offer competitive rates and nothing is due up front. All profit is made from individual orders. I offer a variety of collections and a-la-carte products to fit everyone’s needs. I also donate 10% of my gross income to the schools that I photograph!
