Fine  Art  School  Portraits

C   H   I   C   A   G   O


My goal in offering Fine Art Portraits to schools is to give parents an authentic, boutique photography experience that captures the true personality of their children....the results are genuine, timeless portraits. These portraits are a far cry from the traditional school photos with awkward posing, bad lighting, and weird backgrounds. They are classic and artistic, showcasing the essence of the child without the fake, cheesy smiles.

My experience comes from over 10 years of doing family and newborn photography. I love working with children and capturing their personalities...candid shots are always my favorites, and usually favorites of my clients as well. I will never force a child to smile, but instead will try to coax their personality out by chatting with them as I shoot. A great photo doesn't always mean a smile and looking into the camera...a candid shot of a child looking down can be just as beautiful. 


I offer a full service photography experience for kids in pre-school through high school, in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs. There is no cost up front, all profit is made from ordering. I bring all the necessary equipment with me to the school, and set up in an pre-determined spot on a day that is set by the school. All families will receive a detailed pdf before picture day that explains the shoot and ordering process. Families will receive a link that directs them to an online password protected gallery, which will be organized according to grade, homeroom, advisory, or whatever grouping makes sense for the school. Each child will receive 2-5 images to choose from. Families can place orders for digital files, prints, and canvases. I offer a range of pricing to fit everyone's needs, including package and a la carte options. Products will be delivered to the school within 6 weeks of picture day.

I donate 10% of gross profits to the schools that I photograph! 

I'm happy to work with schools to meet their individual needs, and can provide digital files to use in yearbooks, ID cards, or however the school wishes to use them. I am also happy to provide class and staff photos.

Now accepting schools for 2020 and 2021 school years! Pre-school through high school. If you are interested in Fine Art School Portraits for your school or your child's school, please send me a message below for more information.
