Are siblings invited?
Yes! All siblings that are currently enrolled at the school will have their picture taken individually and together on picture day.
What if my child doesn’t attend school on Photo day?
You may come in exceptionally to have their photo taken at the beginning of Photo Day.
If you can’t make it on Photo Day for any reason (your child is sick, or you are on vacation), or you would like pictures of other siblings: I offer 2 Pop-up Portrait Sessions a year. Be sure to sign up for my newsletter to stay in the loop or email me to get the details!
Can parents jump in for a quick photo?
I am a family photographer, I would LOVE to photograph your family!! However, on School Portrait day, I cannot accommodate parents. NO exceptions, thank you!
Why aren’t there the same number of images and variety of poses in each school portrait gallery?
Depending on the time of day, personality and mood of the moment, some kids will offer a variety of expressions where others will be more reserved.
I strive to capture the personality of your unique child… which also means that I steer clear from cheesy smiles.
What should my children wear, any tips?
YES, have a look at my page What should my child wear on Photo Day?
You will want to avoid logos, black and neon colors. Accessories are a must and so much fun if they help your child’s personality shine!
What if my child had a runny nose? A scrape, a bruise or a rash?
I keep a bag of unscented wipes near me during the photo session. If there are any scrapes or cuts on their face, you may choose to have one or several images retouched (option in your gallery under DIGITALS).
I don’t want you to use my child’s portrait on social media
Without your consent, your child will not be featured on any social media. I take this very seriously.
What if my child doesn’t want to be photographed?
Nicole has a new “No Camera Trauma” policy: if your child is shy or needs time to warm up to the camera, I will do everything to make your child feel comfortable. This happens a lot with kiddos under 4yo!
On the VERY rare occasion that a child is visibly distressed, is crying and scared to look up at me, I will move on to the next child after 2 minutes. We may try a second time, only if the child is comfortable coming back.
I have more questions, how can I contact you?
