fine art Photography

Parent GUide


 

HI THERE!

I’VE LOVED OFFERING MY FINE ART PORTRAITS TO SCHOOLS AND AFTER MANY REQUESTS I AM EXCITED TO OFFER THEM TO DROP-IN CLIENTS!

I just know you're going to love these genuine images of your precious little one!

This page is designed to give you some helpful information to make your photo experience easy and convenient!

 
 

WHAT MAKES THIS PHOTOGRAPHY DIFFERENT?

My goal during my short time with your child is not to force a cheesy smile. I'm looking for natural expressions, which will range from serious and pensive to sweet and silly. The solid black background keeps the focus solely on the child's face and expression.

I will chat and interact with your child during our time together to elicit genuine expressions. For an extra fun time, have your child come prepared with a joke for ME! :)

WHAT SHOULD MY CHILD WEAR?

These images are shot chest-up against a solid black backdrop. Tops that are light-colored or bright-colored are best. Please avoid dark, navy, or black tops, tops with large graphics, logos, or print. And please no neon colors!

Small details at the sleeves, neck, and collar photograph well for these sessions. You can also think about a top that makes your child's eye color pop! Consider allowing your child to select a favorite outfit within these parameters to capture even more of their personality!

What is the cost?

The initial investment is only $10! There is no obligation to purchase any images or prints. After you see your child’s gallery if you choose to make a purchase you will receive a $10 credit toward your purchase. There is no minimum order required.

I HAVE MORE THAN ONE CHILD. CAN THEY BE PHOTOGRAPHED TOGETHER?

Yes! This is the perfect opportunity to get your kids in the frame together. Just be sure to sign up for 1 time slot for every child you want photographed individually, and a separate time slot for siblings together.

WHEN CAN I EXPECT TO SEE OUR PHOTOS?

Your child's photos will arrive to your email via a private online gallery within 3 weeks of photo day. You will have 2-5 images in both color and black and white to select from. 

HOW DOES ORDERING WORK?

Each child photographed will have their own gallery. The same applies to sibling shots. After your receive your online gallery link(s) you will have 7 days to place your order. Everything is viewed, ordered, and paid online, so there are no paper order forms to keep up with. You will have the option to purchase prints, products, and digital images with printing rights. 

Grandparents and other relatives may also place orders through the digital gallery!

WHAT QUALITY ARE THE PRINTS?

Prints come on professional-quality paper with lustre coating.

i’m interested in having you photograph my child’s school!

If you think the parents at your child’s school would love this type of school portrait- I’d love to hear from you.

ONE LAST THING . . .

Your child's privacy is important to me!

If you would be willing to give me permission to include your child's photo (never any names) for these purposes, please complete the following release form. Thank you so much!
