St. Louis | Fine Art School Portraits
What is Boutique School Photography?
My objective is to provide a custom, boutique experience to all the families that attend the schools that have chosen me to photograph their students. My service offers a personal touch while still maintaining professionalism. Unlike large photography corporations, I have chosen to only take a few selected schools so that I can give stunning customer service while offering my very own unique artistic touch on the images.
I never force a smile. I simply look to capture the spirit of the children I photograph. No awkward poses, just their beautiful personalities and faces. The results are genuine and produce timeless portraits that are far from those cheesy school photos we have become accustomed to. I provide an easy going, fun environment which allows the kids to relax and be themselves.
What Services Do You Offer?
I offer a completely online operation. Families receive a link to a password-protected online ordering gallery, which is setup according to grade, homeroom, advisory or whatever grouping works well for that school. Each child will be provided 2-5 images, presented in both color and black and white. The family may choose what photo they want printed. I also provide boutique product choices such as canvas wraps, larger prints and digital image download for future printing. A detailed PDF describing all ordering procedures and shooting 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 images to use for yearbooks, websites, school advertising, school ID’s, or however your school wishes to use the images.
I handle any questions from parents and families regarding ordering and products.
I take staff photos and provide a complementary print package for staff members as well.
I am willing to work with schools to provide custom services to fit your unique needs.
How Many Students Can You Accommodate?
I have provided service to schools as small as 30 and I am ready to work with schools with as many as 1000 Children. I have worked with kids ages 1-18 in my school art photography portraits.
Are These Images Expensive?
I have competitive rates, and nothing is due upfront, all profit is made from online ordering. I offer a variety of collections and à la carte products to fit everyone’s needs. BONUS, I also donate 10% of my gross sales to the school that I photograph!
What Time Of Year Do You Conduct These Fine Art School Photo Shoots?
I work with each individual school to schedule shoots any time during the academic school year.
