I want to do school picture day a little differently, and capture a picture of who your child truly is. I never force smiles, no awkward posing or strange backgrounds. Just natural expressions and timeless portraits

My goal is always to provide a custom, seamless experience for families and schools. Unlike large corporate portrait businesses, I only take on a few schools each year in order to preserve quick turn around times, exceptional service, and artistic images.

I will never force stiff posing, or make a child fake a smile. These school portraits will not be the cheesy ones we grew up with! I use a black, white or neutral background and edit all the images simply in colour and black and white to ensure timeless portraits you will love to display in your home! I'm a bit of a toddler and kid-whisperer, and pride myself on a fun and relaxed atmosphere that kids will enjoy taking part in!


What services are offered?


I provide all equipment and personnel needed for photo day, and with assistance of classroom staff quickly move the children through their individual photos.

Sibling photos can be offered as well, if the daycare or school is open to having siblings come in in the morning.

All proofing and ordering is completed online with password protected online galleries. Each child will be provided 2-5 images, in both colour and black and white. The family may chose the photos they want to print or download. A complete PDF describing all ordering procedures and shooting day prep guide will be provided to each school to distribute to families prior to photo day.

Prints are ordered online and delivered directly to the school within four weeks of picture day.

I handle any questions from parents and families about ordering and products.

I can also take staff and class photos depending on the school or daycare’s needs.

I am happy to work with schools to provide custom services that fit your unique needs!

Are these photos expensive?


There is no charge to the school or preschool for photo day.

I offer competitive rates for packages to parents, and nothing is due up front. I have a variety of collections and a-la-carte products to fit everyone's needs.

I also donate 10% of profits back to the schools that we photograph!

One digital download of each student is also provided at no extra cost to the school for their own use after ordering day is complete.
