I specialize in offering fine art portraits. This means no more strange backgrounds or forced poses. Pictures are taken in natural light from the shoulders up against a classic, neutral backdrop. Our short session is playful and light-hearted. I will also take a portrait of your child on the playground. I aim to take simple, timeless photographs worthy of framing in your home. The emphasis is on each child’s personality and how they are in this moment. I’ll encourage them to be themselves, make any silly faces they want, and will not force them to awkwardly say “cheese.” I will capture several images of each child, and provide you with a variety of images to choose from. This picture day, I will be taking photos of each child individually, sibling groups (sign-up required), and class photos.
picture days are october 24th & 25th!
what to expect on picture day
Hi parents! I'm so happy to be working with First Presbyterian Church Preschool for the 2018-2019 school year to offer a unique style of preschool portraits. Some of you may recognize the cutie above--that's my daughter Vivian, she's in the M-Th pre-K class.
This page contains information on what to expect on picture day, the price list for all digital and print products, and information about the process for online ordering. Please feel free to contact me directly at any time with questions or concerns!
This year, 10% of all proceeds will be donated to the First Presbyterian Church Preschool Scholarship Fund.
The most important thing is that your child is comfortable, so they should wear whatever makes them happy. However, light, neutral colors photograph best.
My prices are competitive with national school photography brands (packages start at just $25). I offer a variety of collections and à la carte options to fit every budget. I hand order, hand package, and hand deliver each purchase to the school for simple distribution to families.
easy online ordering
No need to pre-order or worry about forgetting paperwork. School pictures will be available to families through password-protected online galleries. Parents will be notified as soon as the images are ready. I will capture at least 2-6 images of each child. Some children are more comfortable in front of the camera than others, so some families may have more images in their gallery. Families can download digital images and/or order any photos they want professionally printed. There are no minimum purchase requirements. Buy only what you like!

sign up for siblings photos!
Siblings photos make for great holiday gifts or portraits for your home. These are optional, take place after school on the playground, and require an adult present. Siblings do not need to be current students. These packages are available for purchase separate from your child's individual school portrait gallery.

your privacy is important
I understand your family's desire for privacy. I will never post images of your child on my website or social media without explicit written permission directly from you. Your gallery is password protected with a password that only you can access. I do not offer digital downloads of the class portrait to prevent this being shared on social media by other parents.
