school portrait art | a fine art portrait session
why school portraits? i remember my school portrait experiences ... they weren't pretty. as is the case with most school portrait businesses -- kid walks in. kid sits down. flash goes off. portrait is made. kid leaves. the end result -- just yucky. smiles are awkward and forced. kids often look like their is something wrong with their neck. they're uncomfortable. kids don't look forward to them and parents feel obligated to purchase them.
i want to take the "yuck" out of school portraits by interacting with your child and earning their natural smiles. but i don't just want smiles, you see. i want to SEE your child by capturing the way they turn their head ever so slightly inward or away when they're shy, their intense freckles, their bright red hair, those big disney eyes, their giggles, their super long lashes, and their toothless (or snaggle tooth) smiles.
the actual school portrait session takes place in my home studio and is really simple. i will spend about 10-15 minutes with your child, chatting with them and being silly, all the while studying and capturing their expressions. you will receive 5-10 proofs via a private proofing gallery 1 week later, and will be able to order your packages and/or other products directly from there!
