As a teacher and early childhood advocate, I have found school portraiture to be a specialty niche I offer local schools, childcare centers and families within my community. I use natural, available light (window light) and an on-site studio set-up to create beautiful portraits. Since flashes and strobes tend to frighten children, I avoid them at all cost. I sing, play and take the necessary time with each individual child to make it a fun experience for them. Taking extra care to build the child's confidence and develop trust helps to bring out a genuine, non-cheesy smile. :) School staff members also receive complimentary head shots for welcoming me into their community - just ask! Schools are not obligated to meet a minimum order requirement. Order forms go home with parents to fulfill. Reorders are always welcomed and a make-up picture date for those students that missed picture day can be arranged for convenience. I donate 20% of the profits earned to your school.

[Barbara] is wonderful with the kids and so patient... She does beautiful work!! She took our spring and fall portraits, Breakfast with Santa pictures and will come back for spring and also Mommy & Me pictures too. The parents love her & I can’t say enough about how great she is.
