I believe the children are our future. Teach them well and let them lead the way. Show them all the beauty they possess inside. Give them a sense of pride to make it easier. Let the children’s laughter remind us how we used to be.
— The greatest love of all, LINDA CREED.

School Portraits… Reimagined.


Why choose us for your school photographs?

Our school photography service is personal and professional. Unlike large corporate photography operations, we only take on a few 'select' schools each year so we can provide superior customer service. We strive to capture at least three authentic photographs of each child. Our images are full of emotion and life! We won't force a cheesy smile or an awkward pose. We will capture every child for the unique individual that they are.  Wherever possible, we take portraits in natural light so all we need is one big window or a shady veranda. Our style can be described as 'fine art portraiture' and is far from the traditional school photos with bright flashes and busy backgrounds that we have become accustomed to.

More choice…

Rather than having one photograph chosen for them, families will be provided with a gallery of at least three different images. All photos are presented in colour and black and white versions. Families can choose to order single or multiple images, in digital or printed formats.

Less admin…

We take the hard work out of Photo Day for schools. No upfront payment is required, so you don't need to collect order forms or money. Two weeks after Photo Day, families will receive a link to a private, password-protected album of proofs. All that your school needs to do is:

  • Confirm the date and time for Photo Day and provide a suitable location.

  • Send home the Information Handout to your families (provided by us).

  • Provide children’s names and email addresses within two weeks of Photo Day. 

  • Provide a ‘helper’ on the day to bring the children to the photographer.

  • Hand out the packages once the printed orders are delivered to your school.

How do families receive their school photo prints?

Two weeks after Photo Day, families receive a link to a password-protected online album. They will also be able to view a simple tutorial on how to place their order online. The album remains active for three weeks to give families sufficient time to place their order for digital images and/or prints. They can also share the link with other family members if they choose to do so. High resolution digital images are available for instant download as soon as payment is made. Printed products are processed and delivered directly to your school within two weeks of the ordering cut-off date. Schools can then send the packs home.

Are these photographs expensive?

Our rates for digital files and printed photographs are very competitive with traditional school photography providers. Digitals images are available for outright purchase with unrestricted access to download, share and print. Our printed products are competitively priced and very high quality, sourced from a local, professional lab. Products to suit all budgets are available. Please contact us if you would like information about our current pricing.
