WHAT ARE BOUTIQUE SCHOOL PORTRAITS?
Boutique school portraits are a custom photography experience for kids attending daycares, preschools, kindergartens or public schools in the Portland Metro Area. These portraits are unlike the factory-style school pictures we’ve come to “love”, instead these photos show their real expressions instead of forced smiles.
With me behind the camera, your child will feel at ease and show some of their real personality. The process will be fun and easy for everyone involved.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
For the schools that choose to work with me, I provide a detailed explanation of how everything operates. I work onsite, entirely with natural light, and provide all the equipment needed for the photo day along with an explanatory PDF for the families. I make the process simple and seamless.
My print and digital file services are managed entirely online. Once the portraits are ready to be viewed families are sent a link to a password protected ordering gallery.
Each child will receive a minimum of 5 images, presented in both color and black and white. The family can then choose the portraits they want, as opposed to having one chosen for them. I provide a range of premium printing options, as well as the opportunity to purchase the digital files. Prints are ordered online and delivered directly to the school for collection.
ARE THESE PORTRAITS EXPENSIVE?
There is no cost to the school for photo day. I offer competitive pricing with a variety of prints and digital products that can accommodate every budget. Parents only order what they want with no minimum purchase required. And I also donate 10% of my profits to the school!
WHAT AGES DO YOU WORK WITH?
As a senior and family photographer, I am comfortable working with children of all ages, from toddlers to teens and adults.
HOW MANY CHILDREN CAN YOU ACCOMMODATE?
Up to around 100 children can be managed in a single day. For schools with more students multiple days or sessions may be required (please contact me to discuss the size of your student roll).
WHAT TIME OF YEAR DOES THIS TAKE PLACE?
I work with each individual school to determine what time during the year works best. Schools with younger ones might like to do Fall, Holidays, and Graduation pictures to show their students growth. And others might just want pictures once per year. We’ll figure out what works best for your families.
