Fine Art School Portraits
School Photography Vancouver
What is boutique school photography
I want to make the school portrait experience unique to every school I work with. I’m personal and professional, and my goal is to make photographs for parents of how their kids are in this moment. Unlike large corporate photography operations, I only take on a few select schools so that I can give customer service my all.
You will never hear me say: “Say cheese.” I want to capture children as they are, I want them to be themselves and there will be no awkward poses or faces, just the real kid on that particular day in their life. What comes from that are portraits made with authenticity and the experience is fun for your children. I use only a simple background, no patterns or colours, so there’s nothing distracting from the person in the picture. I want this to be fun for everyone, and I want the pictures to represent the children.
What services do you offer?
I offer everything in password-protected online ordering galleries. They are set up according to grade, or whatever grouping makes sense for the school. Each child will be provided 2-5 images, in both colour and black and white. It is up to the families which photos they want printed and I provide a range of printing options. There will be provided a detailed PDF describing all ordering procedures and shooting day preparation for distribution to all the families prior to photo day.
Prints are ordered online and delivered directly to the school.
I will provide all equipment and personnel needed for photo day.
I provide the school with all high resolution digital files to use for yearbooks, website, school advertising, school ID’s or however the school wishes to use the images.
I handle all questions from parents and families about ordering and products.
I take staff photos and provide a complimentary print package for staff members as well.
I am willing to work with schools to provide custom services that fit your unique needs.
How many students can you take?
Any size school can use my services, all ages.
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 a-la-carte products. I also donate 10% of my gross to the schools I photograph.
What time of year do you conduct these fine art photo shoots?
Any time during the academic year. I work with each school to determine photo day.
