Last Fall I talked about venturing out into Modern School Portraits! I am in LOVE with this type of school portraiture! It’s a chance for kids to be kids, I have watched kids who come to me VERY nervous, stiff, and unsure simply blossom in front of my camera! It’s truly an honor and a gift that parents would trust me to capture their children. Kids who start out thinking I am expecting a “cheese” smile, and end up laughing or being silly and making me laugh. I can’t believe this is part of my job!
The following images are some of my favorites from my very first preschool. It just so happens it is the preschool both my boys attended! I could have put one or two of EVERY student up here but I had to narrow it down so you wouldn’t get lost in the amount of gorgeous pictures:-) One of the classes had TWO sets of twins! I couldn’t believe it! AND two of the classes had very close friend’s children! It was definitely a win-win day for me.
Modern School Portraits are an alternative to the Traditional School portrait, giving parents a timeless piece of art to hang on their wall, and give as gifts. The images are captured outdoors in natural light and I take the time to capture your child as they are, capturing a little or a lot of their personality at this time, this year, this age. This kind of portrait is near and dear to my heart, just as I use images to tell the story of YOUR FAMILY, YOUR DAY, I aim to capture YOUR child in the same way. Each child has a story, which is part of your family’s story, and I can’t wait to capture just a small chapter in theirs. If you would like to have this type of school portraiture come to your school, Contact Me, I am now scheduling schools for Fall!
Wendy Burgan - I can not say enough about our school portrait experience with LIFESTOP photography!! I’ve been teaching for 30 plus years and I’ve never experienced an easier experience and had such AMAZING photos to offer my parents. Anna has an unbelievable talent in capturing each child’s personality. The children look natural and not “posed” as many other companies do. She spends time with each child, making them feel comfortable and in turn, gets the most beautiful shots. My parents were beyond thrilled with Anna’s work. I wish all schools offered portraits like this! I highly reccomend Anna and LIFESTOP photography and plan on having her photograph my classes for many years to come!
Anna Robertson - Aw Wendy! Thanks so much! I am SO glad you originally suggested I do this!
