What are Modern School Portraits?

 

Modern school portraits are not your traditional, stiff school portraits. My goal is to provide you with authentic, timeless images - images that truly represent the child and their own unique personality. These portraits are taken on a simple, black backdrop, providing a timeless, fine-art feel. I strive to provide a custom, personal and professional school photography experience.

How does Modern School Portraits work?

 

On the day of the shoot, I come into your school and set up. I provide all equipment for photo day. 

Approximately 2 weeks after the shoot, all the children's images are upload to an online gallery for parent viewing/ordering. Images are organized by class, and each individual child will have an album. Each child will have 2-5 images in both color and black and white (4-10 total) to choose from! Parents will be able to place orders at that time.

I provide a variety of print packages as well as digital downloads for future printing or archiving! Orders will be packaged and delivered directly to the school.

I handle any questions from parents about ordering and products.

I provide a classroom photo collage for each class.

I take staff photos and provide a complimentary print package for staff members.

I provide the school with all high resolution digital files to use how they wish (yearbooks, student IDs, etc).

Are these images expensive?

 

I have very competitive rates. Nothing is due up front and there is no obligation to purchase images. All profit is made from ordering. I offer a variety of collections and a-la-carte products to fit everyone's needs. 

I also donate 10% of my gross profit to the schools that I photograph!

I work with each individual school to schedule shoots any time during the academic year.

I also hold one day of sessions in my studio two times a year (Spring & Fall). There is specific dates/times set for this and it is walk-in only. Please sign up for my client newsletter to stay up to date on the next session offering.

Do you travel for schools?

 

Yes! I just require a minimum of 100 students for travel outside of Watertown, SD. Travel within 100 miles is included.

For anything beyond this, I charge $50/hr one-way. If more than 4 hours one way, I would also request overnight accommodations (or flight/travel/lodging if beyond driving distance).
