Boutique School Photos
Where personality meets portraits.
WHAT IS BOUTIQUE SCHOOL PHOTOGRAPHY?
Boutique School Photography offers images you’ve been wanting for years – authentic, REAL portraits of your children that actually reflect the personality, style and stage in life. The goal? To capture a variety of unique, fun and individualized portraits. No forced “cheese” smile. By taking a personal approach to the students’ portraits and spending a little more time with them, we are able to provide pictures you’ll WANT to hang on the wall. Our approach is different … for schools, children and families alike. It also serves as an optional fundraiser for local schools by simultaneously offering parents a high quality and genuine school photography experience.
It’s time for school photos to level up!
WILL YOU OFFER DIFFERENT POSES?
Yes! We spend up to 2 minutes with each child, depending on the age, working to capture up 5 or more images that reflect their individual personalities. Parents will be able to choose which image(s) they wish to purchase from the various poses. Each pose comes in color and black/white.
WHAT TYPES OF BACKGROUND OPTIONS DO YOU PROVIDE?
We only use a black solid backdrop at the moment but have recently added gray as an option, depending on each school’s preference. This helps to keep the focus on your child! We don’t have to worry about the background color/design competing for attention with your son/daughter’s outfit.
WHAT PACKAGES DO YOU OFFER?
We offer 3 different print packages with a variety of prints sizes all for $40 each as well as an all digital packages starting at $60. We also offer canvas gallery wraps of a favorite image that includes the digital image. Parents are also able to combine packages and products. For more detailed information please see our contact page.e.

HOW ARE YOU WITH STUDENTS THAT MAY REQUIRE EXTRA ATTENTION/ASSISTANCE?
As a mom of a son with special needs, a teachers assistant and photographing multiple families and children, I have lots of experience with many personality types! If your child needs special attention, I am more than happy to spend a little extra time and make special accommodations as needed. Just let me know in advance and we’ll make it happen!
DO YOU OFFER RE-TAKES?
If I’m unable capture your child due to absence, or you are unhappy with any of the images offered in the gallery, I will schedule 1 day of re-takes. Re-takes will be offered on an as-needed option once I see how many children were absent and unable to participate.
HOW DO PARENTS PAY?
Our entire system is hosted online in private password protected galleries. The school does not have to worry about printed proofs, order forms, or handling/processing money. Our online system takes care of everything.
HOW LONG DOES THE WHOLE PROCESS TAKE?
After we take the pictures, it will take approximately 1-3 weeks before proofs are released to the parents online. The ordering of images will be offered for one week after proof release. Once all orders are in, products will begin to arrive 2-3 weeks later. We will personally deliver all of the products to the school, unless the parents note otherwise on the order form.
DO YOU PARTNER WITH THE SCHOOL ON REVENUE?
YES! We are happy to offer your school 10% of all net profits. This donation is typically given up to six weeks after delivery of prints/products to the school.
IS PARTICIPATION REQUIRED?
Absolutely not! Your child does not have to participate if you do not want them to. Typically every child on campus is photographed and proofs provided digitally. Because of this, your teachers will not have to worry about collecting packages or order forms. If parents do not want their child to participate, they are not obligated.
DO YOU OFFER FALL SCHOOL PORTRAITS AS WELL?
YES! We all love a before and after, right? Fall and Spring are typically when we photograph.
DO YOU ONLY PHOTOGRAPH CERTAIN TYPES OF SCHOOLS?
NO! We can come to private, preschool, public, co-ops, home schools, etc. Interested schools and/or parents can email email@example.com. I think each child and family deserves a boutique and modern school photography experience!
