What is Fine Art Portraiture?
Fine Art. Fine Art is visually appealing, it grabs your attention and tells you a story. I believe that school portraiture can tell a story. My goal is to capture your child’s story in ONE image.
I don’t believe in cheesy smiles, awkward poses and complicated backgrounds that take away the focus from a child’s personality and natural curiosity.
I create an experience that brings out the child’s personality, particular expressions and features – in under a few minutes. This is my bold, modern approach, and I want schools and parents to know that it’s possible! And that it’s fun!
I use a black backdrop. I rely on one simple window so that the children don’t feel overwhelmed and shy away from the camera. Big flashes and awkward poses don’t help to create ease and comfort … Plus, I have my own secret sauce to get children to be themselves, and the results are authentic, natural expressions parents will recognize and love.
What services do I offer?
Your time and peace of mind are important to me. So I have created a seamless online system that makes it easy for the parents to enter their password protected gallery of images and order quality products or digital images without having to click through pages and pages of options.
My prices are competitive and the school owes me nothing. All profit is made through sales.
- I aim to take 2-5 images per child. Each image is edited in both color and black & white.
- Prints start at $12 / One digital image $30 – All $60
- I offer boutique products such as canvas gallery wraps and digital images for future printing and archiving.
- I communicate directly with parents and families if there are any questions concerning orders and products.
What will the school need to do?
Before Photo Day, the school sends a detailed PDF to the parents describing the ordering process and shooting day preparation.
A few weeks after Photo Day, I will deliver the prints at the school who takes over the distribution.
I take class photos.
ALL high resolution digital images are provided to the school for use in yearbooks, social media, school advertising, IDs, to give just a few examples.
Custom services will be provided on a per request basis.
