What is Boutique School Photography?
Fine art school portraits are a custom, candid, and personal experience that provides an alternative photo opportunity to what is expected of a typical school portrait. I only work with a few, hand-picked schools so that I can provide the exceptional service that you deserve as well as the artistic images that set me apart. I work closely with Shayna of Simply Beloved Photography, as a team we are able to ensure that your photo day runs smoothly and the boutique experience is memorable to you. We specialize in capturing your child’s natural expressions and deliver a product of outstanding quality. This results in a classic portrait that highlights the child as they are. This program is not only a unique prospect for families, but also offers a fundraising opportunity for your school/program.
What services do you offer?
We are equipped to take class photos in addition to individual portraits.
Siblings are welcome! Depending on school policy and class schedules, we prefer to have siblings come in for the earliest time slots. Each child would be photographed individually and then together.
We take staff photos and provide complimentary digital images for staff members as well.
We fulfill all of our services online.
Families will receive a link to their school's password-protected online ordering galleries. Galleries are organized by grade/class groupings, depending on the school. Each child will have 2-5 images in their gallery, each image is available in color as well as black & white.
We offer a variety of Print Collections, an A la Carte Print menu, digital images for future printing, and canvas gallery wraps. Prints are ordered online by the family, hand packaged by Rachael & Shayna, and then delivered directly to the school for student distribution.
We provide all equipment needed on photo day.
Detailed information about picture day preparation and the ordering process will be provided to each school. This PDF can be distributed to families prior to photo day to help ease questions about the process. We will handle any questions from parents and families about ordering and products.
We are able to customize services that fit the needs of each school we work with.
What school sizes can you accommodate?
We are equipped to offer this service to schools as small as 20 children and as big as 400 children. We have photographed children ages 1-18.
Is it expensive?
Our rates are comparable to the typical school portrait company. There is no deposit required, all profit is made from orders placed by the families. We offer a variety of collections, a-la-carte products, and digital downloads to fit everyone's needs. We also donate 10% of all net income to the schools that we work with.
