Boutique School Photography Parent Guide

Hi There!

We are so excited to offer boutique school photography to your child's school!  We just know you're going to love these genuine images of your precious little one! This page is designed to give you some helpful information to make your photo experience easy and convenient!

What makes this photography different?

Our goal during our short time with your child is not to force a cheesy smile. We are looking for genuine engagement with your child to elicit natural expressions, which will range from serious and pensive to sweet and silly. The solid black / white / gray backgrounds we use keep the focus solely on the child's face and expression.

We will chat and interact with your child during our time together to elicit genuine expressions. For an extra fun time, have your child come prepared with a joke for ME! 

What should my child wear?

These images are shot against a solid black backdrop. PLEASE AVOID neon colors, hoodies and dark or black tops, tops with large graphics, logos, or print. Small details at the sleeves, neck, and collar photograph well for these sessions. You can also think about a top that makes your child's eye color pop! Consider allowing your child to select a favorite outfit within these parameters to capture even more of their personality!

When can I expect to see our photos?

Your child's photos will arrive one of two ways: 1) as a gallery link delivered to you by your school; or 2) directly to your email via a private online gallery within 4 weeks of photo day. You will have a minimum of 2 images in both color and black and white to select from. 

How does ordering work?

After you receive your online gallery, you will have 14 days to place your order. Everything is viewed, ordered, and paid online, so there are no paper order forms to keep up with. You will have the option to purchase prints, canvases, and digital images with printing rights. 

Grandparents and other relatives may also place orders through the digital gallery!

What quality are the prints?

Prints come on professional-quality paper with lustre coating. 

One last thing . . .

Your child's privacy is important to us!

We occasionally like to post a sneak peek on social media from our photo day at a particular school or add new kids' photos to our website and marketing materials. If you would be willing to give us permission to include your child's photo (never any names) for these purposes, please complete the following release form. Thank you so much!
