About Picture Day

School Picture Day is almost here. Do I have to commit to buying something before you take my child’s picture?

Absolutely not. Here’s how it works: I take the photos and soon after the proofs become available in an online viewing gallery. You look them over and fall in love, or don’t. If you love them you can purchase a package or products a la carte. If you don’t, no big deal. Promise.

Ugh! My kid has nothing to wear!

I highly doubt that. Children look adorable in whatever they wear. You might want to leave the hoodies, flesh-colored shirts, neon, and loud graphic prints at home. Besides that, you’re good to go.

My child makes the weirdest faces for the camera.

My approach to photographing children involves having a conversation, learning about their favorite things, and telling some silly jokes. I don’t ask them to smile or say “cheese.” This leads to more organic and natural expressions. Sometimes they laugh out loud. Sometimes they are more serious and reserved. All these expressions are equally beautiful.

Is school photography your REAL job?

That’s a NO. My real job is documentary family photography, which captures the beauty and chaos of every day family life as it happens. Want to learn more? Click here.

I love these SO much, I want one huge on my wall. Is that possible?

I can't decide between two of my child's photos. Can I split a package between images?

Yes! You can build your packages with whichever images of the same child as you wish. If you have more than one student at the school, you cannot share a package between children. However, you can definitely order a la carte!

What about digitals?

Sure thing. High resolution digital files are available in some packages and a la carte at the following pricing. These are giant, beautiful files and can be used for everyday prints, as well as large wall art, a calendar for the grandparents, coffee mugs, mousepads, etc.

Single image - $60

All images - $100

Those watermarks. They won't be on my prints and digitals, right?

Absolutely not. The images you purchase will be watermark-free.

Is there an advantage to buying the prints if I can just buy a high-resolution file and get prints made myself?

Well, yes and no. If you're a professional photographer with an account at a pro print lab, by all means, print yourself. But I can virtually guarantee that printing your child's portrait at CVS, Target, Shutterfly, or similar lab will yield disappointing results. I work with one of the top professional print labs in the country. The lab uses state-of-the-art printing technology, the best dyes and processes, and the highest-end paper to ensure gorgeous print quality that will look as good in 25 years as it does today. 

I have more questions. How do I reach you?

To be used if I have a question about your order.
For my preschooler it was cats, words that rhymed, and the different kinds of "potions" she would make.
This is a good place to tell me about special needs, triggers, etc, as well as appearance-related things to check (for example, make sure her barrette isn't dangling in her face).
