My venture into Modern School Portraits, LAST fall turned into a busy SPRING season! And now as I prepare for this fall, I LOVE to look back at all the images from last school year. I truly feel blessed that THIS is my job! I can’t think of a better way to spend my days than capturing little people:-) AND some not so little! Of course I STILL love capturing Your story, and telling a chapter of that story in images, but I am truly surprised at the joy that comes from spending time with your students, and offering unforgettable images to your families:-) SO thank you for trusting me with your little one’s yearly images.
Sometimes, you have shy kiddos, and that’s ok. I have found that the teacher usually knows a friend, or a technique to get them in front of my camera, and then really your child and I do the rest! Sometimes, that means having them be my “assistant” for a while, AND sometimes, although rarely that means allowing them to hold their favorite toy of the moment! And don’t worry I still manage to lose the toy in some of the images;-) BUT it’s really about avoiding the “cheese” and letting them guide the time, so that it is about THEM! I mean WHO doesn’t like to talk about themselves! The following are just a few of my favorites from Spring 2015, expect more posts as we get further into the fall 🙂
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 + Spring!
