Fine Art School Portraits

Every child is beautifully unique. I believe school photos should celebrate that.

Authentically capturing a child’s personality on camera is an amazingly rewarding experience and it’s why I love school photography. I believe that school photography should not be a cookie-cutter experience, but rather an
opportunity to showcase and celebrate a child’s personality and individuality with warmth and empathy.


When I photograph children I take the time to ask them questions, get them to think and make them laugh. I want to engage with them and not just ask them to say cheese. And by authentically interacting with children with kindness and sensitivity, I am able to provide families with more than just a smiling snapshot of their child.


My approach to school photography gives me the ability to document the dynamic emotional range of each child and
my commitment to authenticity allows me to produce photographs of children that are just as unique as they are. I provide families with natural, beautiful portraits of their children that capture just who they are, without artifice or
forced smiles.


And I provide unparalleled customer service and care for families and schools. I communicate directly with families and handle all of the ordering, processing and delivery details. I work with schools to make picture days an event to look forward to and enjoy, rather than a chore to dread. I ensure that every detail of the process, from the announcement of photo day through the delivery of orders runs smoothly and efficiently.
