    we capture personality and authentic smiles
    - Your child tells the story!

    “I highly recommend working with Nicole, she is organized, talented, respectful of the environment she works in, she is playful with the children. Her pictures are creative and fun. Parents love them. As a busy preschool owner, I am multitasking all the time. Nicole made the process of ” picture day” very simple from start to finish. She created template emails for me to send to parents. She sent reminders, and recommendations on what to wear. Don’t hesitate, she is the best!”

    Fine Art School Portraits

    Serving San Francisco and the Bay Area

    “Where did you find her? These are the best School pictures I’ve ever seen! “

    A parent to Masha LePort, owner of NOPA Montessori Preschool

    Darlene Navarro, owner of Moldovan Preschool


    Our goal is to provide a custom experience to all families and schools who have chosen Nicole Seguin Photography to deliver a bold, modern approach to Photo Day.

    Our service is personal and professional. We only take on a few, select schools so that we can provide superior customer service and fine art images.


    Why Fine Art School Portraits?

    Fine Art. Fine Art is visually appealing, it grabs your attention and tells you a story. We believe that school portraits can tell a story and aim to capture your child’s story in ONE image.

    We don’t believe in cheesy smiles, awkward poses and complicated backgrounds that take away the focus from a child’s personality and natural curiosity.

    We create an experience that brings out the child’s personality, particular expressions and features – in under a few minutes. This is our bold, modern approach, and schools and parents need to know that it’s possible! AND fun!

    We use a simple black backdrop set up. Fancy backgrounds and awkward poses don’t help to create ease and comfort with children…

    What school portrait services do you offer?

    Your time and peace of mind are important to us. That’s why we created a seamless online system that makes it easy for parents to enter their gallery of images and order quality products or digital images without having to click through pages and pages of options.

    Our prices are competitive and the school owes us nothing. All profit is made through sales.

    • We aim to take 2-5 images per child. Each image is edited in both color and black & white.
    • Single prints start at $12 / One digital image $45 – All $95*
    • We offer boutique products such as canvas gallery wraps and digital images for future printing and archiving.
    • We communicate directly with parents and families if there are any questions concerning orders and products.

    *Prices subject to change

    What will the school need to do?

    A few weeks before Photo Day, the school sends an email to the parents with a link to a webpage with important information, such as how to prepare for Photo Day.

    1-2 days before Photo Day, the school sends an email to remind parents of the upcoming School Day.

    Within 2 weeks after Photo Day, the school sends an email to the parents with a link to a new webpage describing the ordering process, and a link to the gallery of images.

    (All emails & templates are written for you – so you can focus on the important work you are doing at the school!)

    Additional school portrait services

    Class photos are included at no extra charge.

    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 (Staff photos, other).
