Fine Art School Portraits
Fine Art School Portraits are timeless, natural photographs that will become treasured keepsakes. Traditional school portraits often fail to capture the unique spirit of our children. With Fine Art School Portraits, we offer a boutique experience and authentic, soulful photos that capture your child's youth exactly as it is at that moment. We don't force a child to smile or say "cheese". Instead we chat, joke, and play with the children to get real expressions. The experience is fun and light for the children, and online ordering makes the process easy for parents and schools. We take a limited number of schools per year so that we can offer personalized customer service and artistic photographs. We currently provide services to preschools, daycares, and small schools. We work with each school to schedule at any time during the academic year.
Photo Day Details
A detailed PDF describing shooting day procedures, styling tips, and ordering info will be provided to the school to be distributed to families. We provide all equipment needed for photo day and handle any questions about ordering and products. We offer staff photos and provide the school with all (student and staff) high-resolution images to be used for yearbooks, website, school advertising, school ID's, or however the school would like to use the images.
All ordering is online and products are delivered to the school. Families receive password-protected online galleries that includes 2-5 images per gallery, with all images presented in color and black and white. Families select the images they like and order prints, and/or the digital images for future archiving and printing. No money is due up front and we have competitive rates on prints. All profit is made from ordering and we donate 5% of net profits back to the school!
